CQC #210, FM131

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians!  We have so many things to be thankful for, and one of them for me... is YOU!  I appreciate each and everyone of you that comes faithfully here to my little corner of blogland.  I love reading your comments, and checking out your blogs as well!

I had some free time today... my husband is off fishing with our oldest daughter (a Thanksgiving Day tradition, he says!  hah!), my youngest is napping and my other little homebody daughter is reading books for a read-a-thon at school!  Craft time for me!  

I played along with the Colour Q challenge, and the sketch at Friday Mashup.  I didn't mash it up this time as I'm not really into making things for Halloween at all... no spooky projects for me!  But I totally loved the sketch they had for us!  Check it out!

I went with a grateful/thank you card... seeing as it's Thanksgiving... and there are always opportunities to give out thank you cards!

I stamped my image in Black StazOn on watercolour paper, and coloured it using my watercolour pen and the challenge colours!  I had to dig around in my box for some Dusty Durango... but I found two whole sheets of it!  By varying the amounts of water I used on my stamp image, I got varying shades of Dusty Durango on the wheelbarrow handles and pumpkins.  I used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch cut in half lengthwise to peek out on either edge of the DD panel.  And how fun is a Tempting Turquoise wheelbarrow?  Fun, right?

I hope you enjoyed my card!  Go check out both challenge sites and play along yourself!  So fun!

Don't forget to come back tomorrow for our new mid-month challenge from Stampin' Celebration... it's a sketch this time around!  See you then!
