Thankful Fall.....

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone! How did Halloween and your weekend turn out?
My Halloween was super fun with my friends and the weekend was busy doing
other things other than crafting.... I'm now in Holiday mode as I prepare my Thrift Store
for the up and coming weeks of Christmas shoppers! YES! Lots of people shop
at thrift stores for Christmas! We sell lots of new/like new stuff for a lot less than
a regular store... So can you blame them! LOL It's alright with me of course! :o)
But as I said... I'm in Holiday mode.... So here's a Card for the next up & coming
Card stock - Stampin' Up
Digital Paper, Image - Echo Park (I love this paper)
Striped Shapes - Silhouette Store
thankful - Miss Kate Cuttables
Twine - Papertrey Ink
Orange Gems - Bazzill
As you all know... I love the print & cut feature for my Silhouette
 and I LOVE all Digital Paper from Echo Park (& reg. paper too)....
So putting the 2 together is a no brainer for me! I like the
way it turned out! :o)
I'm entering this in the Challenges over at:
Paper Issues - Falling for you
Die Cuttin' Diva's - Anything Goes
2 Creative Chicks - Thanksgiving
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!
