Season of Thanks

Before long, we will be celebrating the end of a bountiful garden season and the up coming fall harvest. I recently obtained this Stampin Up! set from 2001, called "Season of Thanks". It is only a 4 stamp set, but I think I will be giving it a real workout.
The papers used on this card are from a company called Recollections who are producing things for Michaels. They have matching wood mount stamps in the dollar bin, and I must say, some of them are adorable. This paper is from a designer mat stack called Autumn. Oh, and they also have pearl studs and such that match the paper.... all very reasonable! So if you get a chance, check it out.
My images are stamped in Memento "Rich Cocoa. All are colored in pencils and OMS. I used a few SU punches and it was a done deal!
I am rushing a bit with this post as we are in for another delightful evening of sever storms. I am loosing sunlight as I type. About 10-15 miles from me, houses lost roofs and trees came down. They had to file for disaster relief and they say that clean up will take a long time. I feel badly but to be honest, I am sure glad it was not us this time. Oh heck, you just never know with these things. Have a creative evening!

I remember this set!! you made a beautiful card with it!! The Recollections that was near me went out of business - I thought they all did...wonder if I can order from them online - they had every color in Stickles there is...one of my favorite "go to" when a card needs something ...this card you made doesn't need a thing LOL
