GIVE THANKS

One of the things I liked about living in Houston for a few years was Thanksgiving in November. This is such a lovely Holiday - where everyone comes together and just gives thanks.  Sadly although other American traditions have come over to the UK this one hasn't yet.  Although my family and I carried the tradition on when we moved back home.

The challenge over at SU Only challenges this week is a nod to this sentiment and their theme is Being Thankful.  The challenge over at Global Design Project is to case their card.  I've used the autumnal colours and the thank you as my inspiration.  Crafty Calender Challenge is a new challenge to me and they are looking for Autumn Colours.

I had just been using this retired SU set Autumn Days for another challenge and it is one of my favourites with the pheasant so I decided to use it for this challenge.




 I used two old SU inks for this too - More Mustard and Really Rust.  The sentiment is from Feather Together and the leaves are from Colourful Seasons.

YOur card is glorious, and I love the torn edge with these colours and images - it gives it such a lovely rustic feel. I'm so glad you joined in the fun with our thankful challenge at SUO Challenges.

Great fall card. Could also be used for a "man" card, just change the sentiment. I could only imagine how hard it is to not have all the US traditions in the UK. So nice that you are carrying on with them.
