Fall Blessing for the Crafty Gals

It is the 5th of the month, so I am back with another challenge of the Crafty Gals!  We are a group of bloggers who have monthly challenges, caring comments & fun chit chat on SCS—our favorite stamping site to visit.

This month, the challenge was posted by Jackie.  Here are the details of her challenge:

"Fall Blessings"

November is for Thanksgiving & we all have so many things to be thankful for so my challenge for you this month is to create a project to showcase our Blessings. It can be a card, shadowbox, picture frame, scrapbook layout, mini album, etc. Please make whatever your heart desires as long as it features what you are thankful for & I also want you to use a Fall theme for your creations. I can't wait to see all of your wonderful works of art! Have Fun & Happy Stamping!!!!!

I love fall as the colors are outstanding in Wisconsin.  This year was one of the best for the colorful leaves and our 2 maple trees did not disappoint.  I am thankful for nature—and fall is a time that nature is headed for a deep sleep in order to pop out in the spring.  I love to spend time outdoors and enjoy all of the seasons—planting flowers in the spring, enjoying walks, hikes and biking in the summer, planting tulips (I planted over 200 bulbs this year) and enjoying the colors in the fall, followed by snowshoeing in the winter—hope the snow comes this year!

I had fun making this fall card and I hope Jackie I met the challenge!
