Happy Fall...Fusion #18, CASology 64: Harvest, CAS-ual Fridays 115: Fall Colours & a Leaf

Craft dash...whoops, I meant craft post dash (me? A card under 10 minutes? Nope!  A post under 10 minutes - that's even a challenge!!) to share a card that fits three challenges, with yes, some 'liberties' taken a wee bit.
First challenge entered: CASology Week 64: Harvest

Second challenge is CAS-ual Fridays #115, where theme is fall colours and a leaf (liberty #1 evident here)


Third challenge is FUSION 18 (along with  liberty #2)


My simple, although-it-took-me-significant-time-to-create-it card, featuring an I-don't-know-where-it's-from pumpkin stamp that I distress-marker-watercoloured, a MCT sentiment, EP paper and VERVE flags. (whoa...dash overload...)


Thanksgiving in Canada is Oct. 14th, and we're planning to head to visit my family (our last visit was waaaayyyy back in August. Tooo long!!) to share some time and, of course, a big turkey dinner with them.  Giving Thanksgiving cards (or Halloween ones, for that matter) isn't something we've ever done, but trust me, I'm doing my best to change that!!  A few fall-themed cards will be showing up here...I mean, isn't 'every' occasion a card making-and-giving occasion??  (BTW: tomorrow is Techie Day, just in case you have a special tech person who needs a reminder of how valuable they are...Two guys at work are getting wee gifts from me: they're amazing - and patient. Very!).

It's a crisp, cool, frost-on-the-windshield day...time to get ready for work.  Ta dahhhh....post in just over 11 minutes...getting closer to that 10 minute mark!  Have a great Wednesday!

Thanks so much for your visit; please let me know you dropped by!

Gorgeous Fall card, Carol! I really love that pumpkin stamp & you've colored it beautifully. I agree--every occasion is for cardmaking in my world--LOL! I'm sure some of my card recipients wonder why I sent a card, so thank goodness for my on-line crafty friends! How neat you get to spend Thanksgiving with your family.--enjoy!

Goodness, Carol, a post in 11 minutes ... I'm out of breath just reading it! Fabulous card ... rich autumnal colours and a wonderful image (with a leaf!). Anita :)

That's quite the accomplishment...a post in 11 minutes! You need an award! I don't think I could do that unless it included absolutely no photos and the words were jumbled so badly that no one could understand it! :)
Your card is so pretty with those rich colors and beautiful patterns! Love your interpretation of the card sketch!
Thanks so much for joining us at CASology this week!

Love your fall inspired card! AWESOME coloring! I should have know yesterday was techie day..dang, my fiance is a techie dude. I could tell him it is today and well, let's face it, he probably would believe me (wink).

Is your white panel regular cardstock or watercolor paper?
