Thankful for Friends

 Friends add zest to our lives.  I am so thankful for the sweet friends I was able to chat with yesterday.  I texted one friend who jumped to my rescue, spoke on the phone with another friend and met a dear friend for supper.  By the end of the day, my soul was enriched by friends both near and far.

I created this fun scene for the SC666 challenge and Bev's fun challenge FF17TexasGrammy for Falliday Fest at Splitcoaststampers with the help of the MISTI.

 I stamped and masked the small pumpkins then added the large one.  I think that bird is adorable so this week he had to make an appearance!   I was a bit out of it when I was creating this scene and I had the teal pumpkin and the orange pumpkin colored before I realized I had no idea what to do with the third pumpkin.  I quickly snapped a photo and messaged my friend Janeen.  She texted right back, "how about yellow"!  Doesn't it look fabulous?  I don't know what I would do without good friends!

If you didn't get a chance to stop by last week I mentioned that 
teal pumpkins are not just a pretty decorating trend but a symbol for raising awareness of food allergies.   Putting a teal pumpkin on your doorstep means you have non-food treats available, This simple act promotes inclusion for trick-or-treaters with food allergies or other conditions.  You can find out more at FARE: The Pumpkin Project.

Just as with last week's sketch card I am featuring Fall For You from Unity Stamp Co.  


  1. Oh, Angie, what a darling card, and I too am so thankful for are so dear to me! I just love that sweet bird, and what fun to know that Janine helped you with the color of the third pumpkin! Your card is darling, and your coloring is beautiful! Hugs and love, sweet Ang! xoxo

  2. What a sweet autumn scene. I love the blue pumpkin. Friends are special, aren't they? I promise not to kill mine this evening when we get together for dinner and stamping (which always turns into dinner and talking).

  3. Another lovely card and good advice on the 3rd pumpkin from Janeen.

  4. I do so love how this turned out. You're so sweet that anyone would want to be your friend. I am so thankful to have you as a dear friend. I'm hoping some of your creativity rubs off on me. You know I am your biggest fan. Love the way your sentiment is done.

  5. Gorgeous card, love it . Happy crafting, Angela xXx
