Mojo Monday #261


First and foremost, Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canadians out there!  We survived my son's soccer tournament, and continue to enjoy some of the most amazing Fall weather ever!  Beautiful yellows, oranges, reds and rusts are emerging in full force and that just makes my heart sing :)

In keeping with the Thanksgiving theme, I want to thank each and every one of you who visit my little corner of blog land.  You bless me with your comments, the extension of your friendship and continually amaze me with your graciousness, giving and generosity.  Crafters are truly some of the most wonderful people I know :)  A  big cyber ((hug)) to you all!!

Now on to the card!  When I first saw the sketch, I went "hmmmm......" and then drew a blank.  Yikes!  Think the long, vertical banner was causing me issues.  Thankfully this wonderful leaf print paper by Making Memories got my mojo going and I chipped away at it from there.  Stamped and fussy cut the skeleton leaves from Autumn Splendor as they fit well with the background paper and the big brown button wrapped things up nicely.

All the challenge details are over on the  Mojo Monday blog and you also get a chance to view all the wonderful Mojo Makers samples!   Should you wish more details on their cards, you can also visit their individual blogs noted below.


Thanks for visiting and I'll be sure to eat some turkey and trimmings for you, wink, wink!

Pretty, another great fall card. I struggle with these as I can't seem to get the colors there. This is a fun design too.
