Fall - Thanksgiving Card

Hello Everyone!! I love Fall colors. . .they are so earthy and pretty. Wow, the holidays are right around the corner! I can't believe how fast time has flown. It's almost a new year again! I still remember posting my new year resolutions - which by the way, I broke everyone of them! Oh, well!

This is another of the "stock" images that I had stored. Two years ago it seems I loved coloring with pastels and using SU "Crystal Effects" on my images. I also have a pile of watercolored images and images colored with Copics. I'm not sure why I color the images and not use them. Actually, I do know why. . . whenever I watched television with my family, I would bring down images into the family room and while watching a movie, I would color them because I have a tendency to fall asleep whenever we watch a movie. To keep myself alert and awake, I would color. I later put them away and forget that I had colored the images.

Anyway, here is a close up of the image. Can you see the "Crystal Effects" on the image?

If you don't mind, I won't give the dets on the card. . .I have a project I need to post on Card Inspired and I want to do it before I go to bed.

Hope y'all have a fabulous Friday!!

Maybe you should write on the back with a pencil everytime you stamp sth so this way you remember where is the stamp from..
Great card

Just awesome cards Maria, I've been MIA these past (quite a) few days, but that makes for a fun day getting caught up on all the wonderful cards and other creations I missed. And I see i've missed a lot.
So I'm off to do a more indepth study of your yummy eye candy.

Happy Friday
