S & S Mid Week Throw Down

Good Wednesday Evening,
Todays challenge over at the Stars and Stamps Blog was to make Thanksgiving Card for Any Hero. An Any Hero card is when we send cards to the heroes, themselves, and not for them to send home. We usually write a note of thanks to them for their service, so this weeks' challenge is very appropriate. My image and backgroud stamp are both from the Gina K Designs set titled Autumn Splender. I stamped the pumpkin twice, once directly on to the background paper and again onto white card stock colored it with my Copics, then cut out just the pumpkin and attached it to my background paper sitting atop the leaves. It's not perfect, but I'm happy with it for my first attempt. I usually do not even try to cut things out because I'm not so good at cutting. A person has to know their limitations. I matted all of that onto Alcohol paper that I made this morning for this card. The other colors are SU's Basic Black and Pear Pizzazz. I hope you all had a nice day and wish you a good one again tomorrow. See you then. Thanks for stopping by today.


  1. Hi Donna,
    Your OWH card is stunning! I really love the coloring you did and I always just LOVE pumpkins!! I'm kind of looking forward to now working with Fall things, even though I still want Summer to say a while!

    The more I watch the weather, the more concerned we are. Hubby says, if it does still come this way, we'll have to pack up the outside things on Fri/Saturady and if the forecast puts us in a bad spot, he thinks it's possible we may not be able to be safe her. We less than one mile from the ocean and that's kind of scary in a hurricane. We've NEVER had to leave, so I hope we won't again.

    I also HOPE the storm will blow out to sea, a lot MORE East of us and keep us ALL safe. I know you are on the South Shore? Do you think you'll have to go inland or will you stay in your home? I really hate the thought of leaving my home, but want to be safe.

    My worry will be for all my family and my kids too, they all live local and Brian works all weekend? THis one really kind of scares me!!

    Take care and keep in touch! The worst thing for me is to LOSE's awful and hubby has sleep apnea and needs power for his CPap!!
