Homespun Fall

Hey all!

{Edit to note: This card made The Shabby Tea Room's Honorable Mention Cup of Tea! Yay! Thank you so much!}

I am having a hard time believing it's November ALREADY! Did everyone have a great Halloween?  We did as my little one came home with a pretty big bag of loot! The dads in our neighborhood walked as a group with the kids and we huddled around the fire pit and handed out candy.  We sat a table up so those ghost and goblins had quite a buffet to add to their treat bags!

I have a Thanksgiving card to share with you today!  The Shabby Tea Room issued a Homespun Fall challenge this week.  When I think of Homespun, Gingham comes to mind first.  So I just had to add a bit of that to my card.


Again, I grabbed everything from my scrap pile! Yay, for using up some scraps! I added a doily distressed in Orange Marmalade ink next adding my focal image with crochet trim and an assortment of buttons. I used a lacy scallop punch on the bottom of my patterned paper which works well for the challenge this week at The Kraft Journal -  to use banners or border punches on your creation.
I made the inside simple with a sentiment from DeNami Designs and a pumpkin stamp from their Autumn Stamp Set. Keeping the inside simple leaves enough room to write a personal message!
I love the inspiration photo The Shabby Tea Room has this week! 
I have not had a chance to play along with Jules Snippet Challenge in a few weeks, so I am happy to play along this go around!  Also playing along at The Ribbon Carousel - Anything Goes with the New Crew!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Love that seed packet image. Love it! The row of differently-sized buttons under it is also a great touch.
Sounds like your Halloween was a lot of fun. I'm so glad! You're in a new neighborhood, with new folks all around, and it sounds like it went well.
