Time Out #41 Reminder....Happy Thanksgiving





Hello.  Did you know that you still have time to play along with us at  Time Out.  This week, our challenge is Inspired by Words.  We have this quote by American poet William Cullen Bryant:

"Autumn...the year's last, lovliest smile."


I inked up PTI's Brushed Off in a variety of fall colors, then added a sentiment and die cut leaves. This quote inspired me to use fall colors and to make a card that should bring a smile to the recipient. 

Quick and easy (especially if you overlook the tiny smudge...)  This card will accompany one of the Thanksgiving baskets I usually make for the homebound elderly.  I am pretty sure they will forgive the smudge, because I do not have time for a redo this week.

I hope that you will take some Time Out to play along with us this week.  Please see the Time Out challenge blog to see more inspiration from the Design Team and our guest designer, Glenda of My Paper Cat.

I am also linking this up at Simon Says Monday challenge: Autumn is in the Air.




Thanks for Visiting

  1. I am always making smudges like this and don't re-do...it is only us that notice-I wouldn't have seen it if you didn't mention it! The open leaves like this allow us to see that gorgeous Autumn background x

  12. I've been trying to talk myself out of both the Brushed Off stamp set and the leaf die. How can I do that when you make a card like this!!! And I didn't notice the smudge :-)
