For my first card, I used these wonderful Verve pumpkins and of course the maple leaves - happy sigh :)  Plus, our Thanksgiving was this past weekend, so the the sentiment fit as well.  I have always loooved maple leaves, and being Canadian, it is a good thing, after all, we do have one on our flag LOL!   We have lots of maple trees of various varieties on our street and a few in our back yard as well, so this time of year their beauty against a blue sky or evergreens often takes my breath away.   We also have various pumpkin fields in the area so I combined both elements on my card.  An embossed woodgrain background and some delicious autumn colours (my favorite to work with), and some twine and a few brown half pearls brought things together nicely.

For my second card, I continued with the maple leaf theme, only added latte's to the mix {grin}.  Another mix of fall colours and more opportunities for thankfulness.
