Basket of Blessings

It's the most wonderful time of the year.  We hear that about Christmas time.  But for me, I love October and November more than December.  The colors of Autumn, days of rain and wind which result in curling up with a book and fire, and Thanksgiving Day.  All of Autumn is time of reflection of blessings.  Many of my Autumn stamps are associated with Thanksgiving Day or blessings or prayers and verses of thanks.
This card is made with Stamploration products: Stencil, stamps, and die cut.
The leaves were done with Tim Holz Distress Oxide inks, the basket of fruit with Copics and Prisma pencils.

  2. This is so pretty, Marsha. I remember when I was a kid, people would give baskets of fruit; especially at this time of year. I haven't seen it done in a long time, but it's a great idea and really represents the essence of Autumn. Thanks for stirring up a happy memory in my heart. Your participation in our challenges means EVERYTHING to me!
