Fall Blessings

 Hi, I'm so glad you stopped by today. I have a card to share with you :)

Our challenge this week at MEFY was to make a Thanksgiving card using kraft cardstock, and this is what I came up with.

I decided to make an easel card and use this cute Stamping Boutique image.  I used the kraft cardstock for my base and then used this pretty plaid pattern that was in my MS halloween stack that I got last year. I also used my spectrum noir markers to color this image in. It's my first attempt  using alcohol markers, so it's not really that great. Hopefully I will get better with practice hehe.  I printed out my image and then cut the border around it from my silhouette.

The sentiment is from the Getting Cricky Fall-O-Ween stamp set.  The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby, and I used a Martha Stewart punch (cathedral lace..hope I spelled that right hehe) to keep the top portion of the card from sliding down.

Our fabulous sponser for this week is ..
  The Stamping Boutique -
 and they are generously offering  3 images of the winner's choice
As you can tell by the image I used, she has some super cute digis in her shop :)
So get your crafty mojo going and come on over to Made Especially for You and enter your card into our challenge. I would love to see your entry. It always amazes me at how much talent there is out there!

Have a great and crafty day!!
