CFC 26

Good morning everyone! And happy November! It's like we start counting down till Christmas. I guess it is time to start some serious Christmas shopping because I don't like to get out and do it after Thanksgiving! Nick had the day off today so we slept in. So nice! But he won't have another day off until Thanksgiving. He didn't go trick-or-treating last night. And I don't think he missed it. He really doesn't eat all that much candy anyway. And it's nice not to have it in the house so that I will be tempted! We watched a great Monday night football game instead. That was fun!!

Today's card was for the LNS challenge last week which was to create projects using leaves and/or trees. I wanted a different color combination so I looked at my Color Coach and this is what I found - Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze and Perfect Plum. Perfect Plum, really? But then I remembered a tree that we had at our last house. It was a Purple Autumn Ash. I loved that tree! The leaves turned the deepest purple in the fall. It was beautiful! So here it is on my card! I like the way it all came together! I also used the sketch at CAS-ual Fridays to get me going. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

Card Recipe: Stamps- Autumn Splendor, Grateful Greetings; Paper- Confetti Cream, Always Artichoke; Ink- Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze, Perfect Plum; Accessories- neutrals buttons, linen thread, piercer, dimensionals
