Color Throwdown #70


It's another great color combination for the Throwdown this week, and Barbara was inspired by the beauty of Fall when she picked these colors! I hope you'll be inspired enough to join us this week! Remember, you don't have to have these exact colors... just use whatever you have that is similar!

I chose to go with a Thanksgiving theme for my card, seeing as how we'll be celebrating tomorrow with food and family! My beautiful "Horn of Plenty" stamp comes from Whipper Snapper Designs, and I used the "thanks" sentiment from Melanie Muenchinger's "A Year of Leaves" stamp set. I also used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge #49 for the layout.
We're sad that today marks our last day with November Guest Designer, Elise Durenberger! Elise's enthusiasm is so wonderful, and I've enjoyed getting to work with her and getting to know her better! Please stop at her blog to see her wonderful creation for today! Then stop by and see what the other Throwdown designers have created to inspire you!


I wish you all a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving holiday, filled with good food, loving family and wonderful memories! God bless!

Look at YOU and your cornucopia-o-harvest goodness! This REALLY gets me in the MOOD! GORGEOUS, Tammy! This has been such a terrific month for me and one of the perks of getting around to the CDT neighborhood, so regularly, is really having an opportunity to learn each of your styles a bit better! THIS is CLASSIC "Tammy!" YEE HAW! Fantastic job, m'dear! Your color work is flawless! Thanks for including me in the fun ~ it has truly been a pleasure! Have a glorious Thanksgiving! You'll CONTINUE to hear from me, as a civilian! Tee Hee Have a wonderful day!

Tammy how pretty is this? I dont have any copics yet but as soon as Christmas is over I will be buying myself some. You did an awesome job coloring the stamp image. I need some more direcion as " how to use them" before I spend the $ on them.
