A Fall Thank You for - MOJO Monday 312, ATCAS #23, & CAS-ual Fridays #115

Hello dear friends and followers. Fall is definitely in the air and there are lots of challenges out there featuring a Fall or Autumn theme.  It's been a long time since I've done a card outside of my DT responsibilities so I thought I'd give it a go again.  The laundry, cleaning and cooking just had to wait today 'cause mama wanted to play in her craft room :o).

Here's what I made today (using some of my new DSP that I got in the mail yesterday!):

I'm entering my card in MOJO Monday #312  since my card is based on this sketch below:

I felt like this sketch was a good one to use as CAS (lots of open space - mine is colored instead of white,  and few embellishments) so I'm also entering my card in the following challenges as well:  
Addicted to CAS (ATCAS #23) - Code Word: Autumn/Fall
CAS-ual Fridays CFC115 - Fall Colors with a Leaf

And finally, since my sentiment on the front is text language (aka "teen speak") for Thanks or Thank you (I get this one a lot in text messages from my kids), I'm also entering my card in   
My Time to Craft Challenge #236 - Thank You.

I just realized that I didn't do any stamping on this card - I used all die cuts and/or punches.  Seems odd when I do that.  I did stamp a sentiment on the inside though so I feel better :o).  I'm lovin that new DSP - it's call Sweater Weather (from Stampin Up!) - how perfect is that?  The papers have almost a texture look to them and the colors are just too perfect for the fall season.  Hope you enjoyed my card and that I've inspired you in some way. 

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me today - I'm sure glad that you did!  Til next time... hugs and  happy crafting! D
