Happy Fall!

It is Thanksgiving on Monday for Canadians. So to all my Canadian Blogger Friends, "Happy Thanksgiving!". To all my other Blogger Friends ...wherever you may be from..."Happy Fall!"

This last weekend we went to Saskatoon to visit my mother....who is doing very well. We took my brother Dana along....He is the one that has terminal cancer..you can read about it here.

On our way down Dana was telling me about all the Beautiful Cards he has been receiving. He enjoys them so much that he won't open them all at once..he opens one here and there to stretch the enjoyment and have something to look forward too. He was in awe to receive them from all over the map. He would like to thank and let everyone know that he appreciates them SO Much!!

I'd like to Thank everyone as well......not only for the cards but for what they did....It was so wonderful to see him so happy and excited about it....it has definitely made him feel less alone in the world. You are all Wonderful!!!

Here is my Fall card......It is made with the SC139 Splitcoast Sketch Challenge.

Stamps - SU Seasonal Whimsy

Paper - Whisper white, Chocolate chip, Costco

Ink - Earth elements markers for coloring stamp, classic black, old olive, creamy caramel and close to cocoa.

Accents - ribbon, flowers, brads, stitching, stardust pen and cuttlebug.

Thanks for looking and your kind comments! Have a Wonderful Weekend!!
