Harvest Plenty

Happy Thanksgiving Day to all you (us) folks in Canada! Happy Columbus Day to you all south of the border! And to the rest, Happy Today!

I've put together this card to celebrate Thanksgiving.

I had the following challenges in mind when I was making this card:

Papertake Weekly is having their 3rd birthday blog hop and their challenge is to choose your favorite challenge from the past 3 years. I've chosen their September 8, 2008 Challenge - Autumn Haze.
Charisma Cardz - Challenge 40 - autumn colours.
Just Magnolia - Week 76 - 2 x 2 challenge, things in pairs. I have used 2 Tilda images, 2 designer papers, 2 sentiments.
Friday Sketchers - Challenge 123 - Bea's wonderful sketch. You can see her sketch on her blog here.
Stamping for the Weekend - Challenge 48 - autumn inspiration.

The 2 images from Magnolia is called Tilda Picking Peaches and Peachy Tilda. They are both from the A Little Yummy for Your Tummy Collection 2009. I thought the two images go well with the sentiments I wanted to use and they all fit the occasion perfectly. You can get these adorable Tildas from Diana from her on-line store, Magnolia-licious.
I have made this into a gate card to accommodate the 2 images and sentiments. They won't all fit on the front of the card!

I had coloured these 2 Tildas during my summer vacation. I was mindful of the weight I had to carry in my backpack, so what I had brought with me were a few markers to do the skintones--I like doing faces best with my markers--and a partial set of my Prismacolour pencils to colour the rest. These are 2 that I managed to get done. I thought I would have more time playing around with my Prismas, but as it turned out...not so much. Plus good lighting is very important, which was not always available.

That's it for now. Enjoy the rest of your day. Thanks so much for dropping by. I appreciate you taking the time to visit.

Stamps: Peachy Tilda, Tilda Picking Peaches and Peach Branch from Magnolia's A Little Yummy for Your Tummy Collection 2009, sentiments from Inkadinkadoo clear stamp set Harvest Expressions.
DP's: Chatterbox Scrapbook Walls Collection Tangerine Pinwheels, Recollections Monkeying Around Collection Banana Leaf.
Tools: Martha Stewart edge punch Woodland branch.
Embellishments: Recollections pearls.

Happy (belated) Thanksgiving Day, Norma! Your card is beautiful and I love the fall colors. Your cutting skills is just awesome! I don't know how you can such tiny areas! Do you use scissors or a craft knife? Mine would be all mangled up! LOL! Beautiful coloring as always and your card is gorgeous inside and out! Thanks for sharing this wonderful card. Hugs, Cami
