Hey there! Short post today. We had a death in the family this past weekend and it's just been a long hard week. Actually, a long hard season but that's another story for another post. So, it's Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown challenge!! This week, our hostess Wanda picked some great neutrals. Check them out:

We've had so many people praying for us this week and sending kind thoughts that I had thanksgiving on my mind and opted to use the colors in that way. As a blanket thank you to everyone who's been there for me lately! People who've made me smile and all. Here is my card:
I just love that patterned paper. I've had it for a few years and haven't ever used that particular pattern. Love the way it works with the thanks giving theme I was going for with this card.

Well, that's it for me. Be sure and check out what the other DT members have for this week and play along if you can. Next week is our last challenge for the year!

Hey there! Hope you're having a wonderful week. I've been sick, so it seems like it has gone on longer than it actually has. I was working today on some numbers with my boss and completely zoned out..seriously. When I "came to" I had no idea what we were doing or talking about. I still feel that way. Ugh..

Anyway, today is the first Thursday of the month and that means it's time for another FYI Challenge. Here is this week's inspiration photo:

I was really struck by the colors and decided to focus on that. Here is my card:

The sentiment is from my Market Street Stamp, Follow Your Heart. I stuck to a pretty basic layout since my brain was NOT about to come up with anything especially complicated in its current state. :)

I hope you will play along with us this week. Check out the FYI blog and see what the other DT members have done! Have a great Thursday...
