CLICK HERE  for my DL.ART Linky Party ending  October 31


Hi Friends,

I really do love this time of year. From September to the end of the year.  To me, it is a time of thankfulness, peace and joy.  I am so grateful that my mother is still alive and it must be the kid in me, but I strive to make her the best card every year, that I can, for Thanksgiving and then Christmas.

I spent a lot of time on this I cut out the pumpkin from the Thanksgiving (CC). I hand-colored it with copic markers and also finished the inside. I don't always finish the insides of my cards, sometimes it is like making another card.  I think that is going to be my new goal to finish the insides of cards.




They just look more finished (no pun intended)

  27. Diana: You made such a pretty card. Think I'll 'card-lift' from you [if you don't mind?] and start doing the inside of my cards too---makes it look more finished! Thanks for joining us for our Challenge #24 - Pumpkins.
