Happy Thanksgiving...My Creative Time: Designer Challenge ~ Pumpkin

Long weekend! Hoorayyy!   Canadian Thanksgiving: double hoorayyy!!!  We have an early start tomorrow - 5:00am - heading north, first to be officials at a bike race, then carrying on to my parents' place. I am stoked!  Haven't seen everyone since early September, when I dropped my husband off for the Tour of Alberta event. so I can only imagine how much my darling niece and nephew have grown!  One most excited Aunty C here!!  My mom will be serving Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday, so we'll have a chance to see the whole clan, minus my brother, who's off on a 'boy-bonding' weekend with his buddies to Moab.   I'll miss seeing him - especially since my 'baby brother' turns 40 today (he's 14 years younger than I am, but as of today, we are one decade part, rather than the two decades yesterday) - but we're back again next weekend, so perhaps our paths will cross.

Packing awaits (layers of clothes, since I'm 100% positive the air will be crisp at the race we'll be at), so I'll quickly share the cards I made for my next-door-at-work Educational Assistants.  Thanksgiving theme paired with pumpkins, which means they're off to My Creative Time Designer Challenge.   Actually, nearly everything on my card is MCT...

Here is a set of two...

 a trio...

and all five together...


Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian readers!!!  

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day.

Oh yes: my trio of 'tween' cards from last weekend: thank you to everyone who commented! Talk about buoying my spirits!  And the 'positive energy' worked wonderfully: Marion loved all three...so I gave them to her.  I'm tickled pink!!

I knew Marion wouldn't have been able to choose one from those three cards! You're so kind for letting her have them all :)

Another set of super cute cards! I can't decide which is my favourite...maybe the one with the chevron paper or the black and white floral 'doily'...hmm, maybe just all of them! Those pumpkins are too adorable!

I hope you have a wonderful thanksgiving weekend and get to catch up with you little brother on the next wave! ;)

Happy Thanksgiving, my friend! Have a wonderful time--no way not to, I know! Your cards are terrific & I'm sure will be treasured. Can you believe we both were drawn for CAS-ual Fridays?--yah! So glad the tween cards were a success.

There is no way Marion would have been able to decide - no surprise at all that she wanted all three! They were seriously awesome!! And so are these babies! I'm super in love with the one with the doily! Your cards are so FAB and I am inspired every time I come for a visit!!
Have an awesome race, and more importantly, and an AWESOME visit with your fam!!! And HAPPY THANKSGIVING to your and your whole family!!!
I promise, promise I will write soon - I have somehow, inexplicably gotten myself behind! (I don't know how that is even possible considering my life of leisure!!!)

These are very cute!

Happy Thanksgiving to you dear friend!

I'm suppose to be painting....but......great cards! Love the DP, love the square shape of the card (nice contrast to the rounded pumpkins) and love the warm, fall colors! Great idea to whip up five of these - would sure make a nice gift set!

Hope you're staying warm at the races. Beautiful day here today!
