Terrific Tuesday

Today I went for a bit of a non-traditional card. I live in an apartment and have the nicest neighbors. I try to change the decoration on my door with the season and this week I put up one to celebrate Thanksgiving, which is quickly approaching!!

I used two great items from the Deedee's Digis store ~ the image from Bountiful Blessings and one of the great verses from Words of Thanksgiving. The cornucopia is popped up above the fancy oval I put through my Cuttlebug. Since the challenge this week at Deedee's is to use the lovely late Autumn colors of red, yellow and brown, I used those as my primary papers - the DP is from my box o' paper and I no longer know that manufacturer. I colored the cornucopia with my Bics! There are two buttons holding my ribbon to my project and a floppy bow to hold it on my door. I will probably re-work the bow, but am not very good at them, so we will see...lol

Thanks for stopping here - I hope you are working on your challenge project, as we 'speak'. Deedee's Digis is sponsoring the challenge (Buttons and Bows) over at Tuesday Throwdown, so stop by there and see some more inspiration!

Huggz,
April
