'ABC' Challenges - Color Challenge and Lollipop Crafts #94 {Giving Thanks}

Hello friends and blog followers, so happy that you've decided to pop in and visit me today.  We have a color challenge for you this week at 'ABC' Challenges. We'd like to see your beautiful cards using Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Choc Chip. Here's what I came up with for your inspiration:
I am also entering this card in the Lollipop Crafts Challenge #94 - We are Thankful.  It's getting close to Thanksgiving and I LOVE Thanksgiving! I love the fellowship of family and friends (so very thankful for each and every one of them), celebrating our freedoms and blessings (thanks to our military personnel who so bravely defend us), I am thankful for our health, and of course the food - the wonderful, delicious food - Yum!! This is the one day I really let myself just enjoy (and usually regret it later) in terms of whatever I eat.  Does you family have any specific food traditions for Thanksgiving?  We usually have scalloped oysters as one of the dishes that is made.  And for me... I just must have sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie.  Am I making you hungry?  Sorry - I almost made myself hungry too :o) Pie anyone???

So... on to this card.   I punched out a bunch of leaves using Choc Chip and Pumpkin Pie cardstock and assembled them in a wreath shape.  The Argyle embossing folder provided some additional texture to this card.  A pretty quick Thanksgiving card really - aside from the time I spent getting the leaves to conform into sort semblance of a circle ( ;o) ).  My layout comes from a sketch that my friend Cindi found on-line for one of our card exchange group get togethers. I am very thankful also for this great group of crafty ladies - they are a wonderfully supportive group.  I will be sharing this card with the group - hope they like it! 

Well... off I go for now. Hope you decide to join us this week at 'ABC' Challenges.  The other DT members have created some beautiful cards to share with and inspire you too.  I'd love to come visit you and see your beautiful cards - so go get crafting.  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!  Hugs!
