Happy Fall Ya' All!

A closer look at the image.
The inside of my card.
My bow and pretty adornment.

 My bags are packed and I am ready to board the plane. I am flying from Idaho to Georgia. I will be spending Thanksgiving with extended family this year. It will be the first time I have been with my younger brother and sister-in-law in thirteen years. While I am a bit nervous about flying, (by myself) and going through two major airports I have never been in, I am also excited to see my extended family. It will also be the first time my husband and I have been apart for the holidays in 43 years. I know it will be a different experience for both of us. 
Enough about me, on to my card. this is another cute image from "Wee" stamps. I love fall colors and thought the leaves were so pretty once I colored them. I used a craft card stock and added some pretty scraps from my scrap basket. I had some pretty ruffled ribbon that matched perfectly that I added to the bottom of the card. I added a bow and a pretty pearl/rhinestone adornment to the center. Some gold half back pearls and Stickles around the image finished off my card. The sentiment is a "yard sale" stamp I bought for five cents. Love the bargain I got there.  I hope each of you are blessed this Thanksgiving holiday and for my friends across the pond,  may you be blessed also. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges: 
My Song: Give Thanks
Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son
Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son
And now let the weak say, "I am strong"
Let the poor say, "I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us"
Give thanks!

I've been busy and have missed seeing your wonderful posts. Have a safe, wonderful trip. Hoe our Georgia (next door to me) gives you wonderful weather. This card is sooooo love love! Did you take a coloring class on line? I took two classes locally and then they moved. I guess a lot of practice would help too.
