Flocked Autumn Leaves

For today's DeNami Sketch Challenge post, click HERE.

Hey, everyone! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. I loved getting that extra hour due to the time change, but, man, it's sure to throw me off for the rest of the week!

I realized over the weekend that I am short on Thanksgiving cards, so I've really got to get myself in gear. Here's a quick one that I made this morning:

My goal is to make these cards as flat and easily mailed as possible! So there's nothing too elaborate here. I found some direction for my card with these challenges:
The patterned paper is from an old Tim Coffey K & Co. pad; the Happy Thanksgiving sentiment stamp is from DeNami Design; the lace is from May Arts; and the glittery mini brads are from We R Memory Keepers.

My daughter joined the newly formed photography club at her middle school this year. Their assignment has been to take lots of photos capturing "fall." I noticed last week in the woods by our house that a tree choked with bittersweet vines had been toppled by Hurricane Sandy. We both grabbed our cameras to take a few photos of the now-accessible bright red and orange berries. Here's one that I took:

Well, I've got several tasks to tackle for work, but be prepared to see more Thanksgiving cards sprinkled over the next few days. I've got to get these done!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

What a lovely warm Thanksgiving card Emily! You've made me a touch crazy here on trying to count how many I have made and wondering if I need more LOL! Your picture of the bittersweet is so pretty!

I love leaves and the corner element with the zigzag stitching is fabulous! Great card.

I'm loving your nature photo! Very well composed, with good aperture. I'm glad you shared that!

I haven't made any Halloween or Thanksgiving cards, as I'm focusing all on Christmas. I like your flat-for-mailing Thanksgiving card's sketch, and those pretty leaves in the corner. They're beautifully highlighted in that circle!
