Another Fall Card

For once I'm actually going to have enough cards to send at Thanksgiving.  I like to do Fall colors & images & then put Happy Thanksgiving on the inside.  My card for Impression Obsession Harvest Hellos is one of them. 
I used one of my all-time favorite designs with DIs candied apple, abandoned coral & fossilized amber as the masked background for IO Three Little Twigs.  The gold embossed sentiment is from IO Anytime Sentiments.  I added brown splatters & mounted the panel with fun foam.  No bling as this is going to my brother and his wife & really, I don't think it needs any.  I'm also entering CropStopSSS Wednesday, Stamplorations themeThe Male Room.  Our weather is really changing--full sun, but in the low 70s at noon instead of close to 90--yah!  Actually we have rain coming & we really need it.  Seems strange to say with all the misery from the hurricanes.  Hoping the millions of dollars raised for relief will get used properly to really make a difference.  I keep thinking of Katrina & all that still hasn't been done.  Anyway,  thank you so much for taking time to visit my blog.

  8. This is gorgeous Greta. I love the blended colors and bright sentiment. We need rain so much too and only got a smattering from Irma. My thoughts are the same as yours about the money raised for hurricane relief. It takes so long to get things done for those who have lost everything. It breaks my heart to see that.
