WATERCOOLER WEDNESDAY WWC 242 - MARSHA'S "ALL ABOUT OCCASIONS" CHALLENGE

Hi Everyone!
Happy Thanksgiving!   It is a beautiful Fall weekend here.   We have so much to be Thankful for.   🍂  My sister, Penny. is having our family over for dinner on Sunday.    I just love the family get togethers.    

My card for the Challenge though, is to celebrate Christmas!    This little guy is so sweet and cute.   He will definately bring a Smile to your face.   I cased this on Pinterest...not sure what animal he is, could not find a face and finally wound up stamping the eyes and nose from the fox stamp set that retired recently.   I also discovered that you can use the "Cookie Cutter Christmas" stamp set too.

I used two different plaid's as well.

Supplies Used:
Stamp sets:  Painted Harvest, More Merry Messages

I just love this little guy.   I am having so much fun with "Painted Harvest".   I got it last year just before I moved and am just discovering this wonderful stamp set.   You can also make a Christmas Wreath with it.   So versatile!

Well, that is it for me this week .... don't forget to check out WWC 242.  There are so many ideas and lots of inspiration from the Design Team of Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

Have a great Thanksgiving and take time to be "Thankful".    Leave some Turkey and Pumpkin Pie for me.  Yummm!

Hello there!
Well, I am starting my Fall/Autumn cards now.  Getting ready for a Craft Fair in October.    I played around with a new technique for the colors in Autumn leaves, and I think they came out pretty good.   Take a look at the following pictures:
