Autumn Blessings

I had a very busy time at work this week. There are so many projects for the holidays.  Friday was our Fall Feast so we made turkeys – paper bag turkeys, turkey hats, turkey books, and turkey placemats.  This gives a lot of practice counting feathers, reviewing colors, cutting, writing, sound spelling, ect.  No wonder I was thinking fall and Thanksgiving when I had a chance to get creative this week.  The fact that Christmas decorations went up on the street lights in our local town might have made me a little more determined to remember a somewhat forgotten holiday – Thanksgiving!! 

This card was made using the Fall Leaves Stampette Set from Sparkle N Sprinkle, along with their new Tiger Orange Velvet Glitter.  This is not your Clemson Tiger orange.  It is more of a deep, rich orange that is so soft and sparkly.  For details on this card, head on over to my post at the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog.

Remember that SNS is having a four day blog hop starting this coming Thursday, Nov. 15. so make sure you check back.

With true gratefulness for all my followers,

E. Marie

What wonderful orange glitter! It looks great on this gorgeous card. I especially like all the colors overlapped on the wreath and the blingy sparkle swirl. Especially after Hurricane Sandy, we have a lot of blessings to count.
