Sending Harvest Blessings!

Hi, friends!
Gosh, it's been forever since I've had a chance to blog or get crafty!
We are a busy group, bustling from sun up to sun down ♥
Even now I'm scrambling to get my progressive
card done since it's the last day of the month ~
I've missed nearly all of October's crafting - eeeeek!
Now that's scary :)
This card is my entry into the FTHS using the progressive image.
There is a beautiful Thanksgiving sentiment that goes with it as well,
but I did not have time to do the inside of my card like I usually do *gasp!*
This gorgeous cornucopia image is a beautiful way to share a card with
just about anyone this upcoming Thanksgiving.  
 You can read all about FTHS and Faith's gorgeous digital images here
and I'll enter this into the challenge for the month of October :)
However, there is a card on my blog today for another progressive challenge
that trumps mine!
 This scarecrow beauty is from Deedee's Digis, a lovely little company
that I was blessed to DT for a couple of years ago :)
But I didn't make this card - my son did!
From top to bottom, from ink to paper and glue and YES!
  Even that button!
(he is his mama's son, lol!)
I printed it out a couple of weeks ago and left it on my craft desk.
He walked in and in the midst of telling me the exciting topic of the moment,
he spied it and asked if he could color it :)

See, art is not his thing - although he would occasionally hand me 3 buttons,
3 different card stocks, etc and challenge me to make a card with it :)
This time, he colored this card, picked out the paper, lined it up (the best he could, lol), added a strip of burlap, a little button 
and even put in a handwritten sentiment, 
decorating the INSIDE of his card, too!

 I'm so proud of this little man :)
We'll enter this one into Deedee's Digis Progressive Challenge -

Before I go, I did want to announce the winner of my Blog Candy

  5. Love these two cards, Kelly - how sweet is your son's? How old is he? I wish my kids would have shown a little interest in stamping too. The cornucopia card is awesome, I love the way you layer your papers. Always so perfectly coordinated. So glad I stopped by tonight - am I the Shona?

  18. Love, love these DeeDee's images. Your son did an outstanding card using this cute scarecrow, beautiful dp behind the little guy, and love the orange button. Cornucopias are always my first thought at Thanksgiving, and of course I adore this one, as you've used it so well on this pretty card. Isn't Faith amazing with what she does with Photo Shop and these marvelous digis? Two great cards. TFS & compliments to your talented son. Have a great So. Fla wkend. Hugs
