Counting Autumn Blessings

      As a way to say "Thanks" in this month of Gratitude and Thanksgiving, I always recommend a count of all the blessings you've received throughout the year, and the blessings of the harvest and having family close need to be on that list, for sure!  

     This fun image from QKR Stampede, called "Farmer Crow" seemed the perfect one to use on my DT card for the new "Anything Goes" challenge starting today.  The image is colored with ProMarkers, then cut with an oval die from Memory Box.  That was one of the first dies I ever bought and it must go back at least 12 or 15 years.

     The background is made with layers of dp from an old DCWV stack.  The brown, sparkly ribbon on the left is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, as is the satin ribbon I used for the hand-tied bow.  I added an orange flower gem to the bow.  The pumpkin & flowers in the corner have had glitter added to them for a bit of sparkle.

My colors came from board #470 at CMH Color Dare
top row, middle row, and left hand column.
Actually, once I add in all the colors in his face and beak, I've
used all the colors except Sapphire!


     I hope you're going to remember to come and play in our Anything Goes challenge this fortnight.  We love being inspired by you and if you're the winner (we have 2 winners each challenge - 1 for those who use QKR images and 1 for everyone else), you could win some fabulous digis!  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
