May Your Days be Happy!!

Hello everyone....hope all is well with you today!!! We are sorta recovered from the first of the Mother was admitted to the hospital on Sunday and was discharged yesterday. My sister has been visiting from Iowa so we took turns staying the night with mom. She is doing much better...we are sooo blessed to still have her and my Dad is our lives!!!  Anyway.....

I made a card using Taylored Expressions new fall set called We Give Thanks for last weeks Free 4 All challenge on Splitcoast.  The challenge was to make a fall card with texture and to incorporate one of the HYCCT challenges so I used the wheat image and the beautiful sentiment. The wheat and sentiment were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and the wheat was colored with Copics.....the twine and Doodlebug sprinkles were added for texture. This also fits Jeanne's HYCCT1302 challenge to make a card that would make someone happy.

A frame was drawn around the edge with a brown marker to finish it off. 

Thanks for stopping by...have a great Thursday!!!

Supply List:
TE Stamps: We Give Thanks
Paper: Choice Buttercream (TE), Soft Suede (SU), Doodlebug Happy Harvest 6x6 paper pad (TE)
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Brown Marker (SU), Copic Markers (TE), Twine (TE), Doodlebug Sprinkles (TE))
