cQc #361 ~ Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello lovelies! There's a pretty September palette for this week's challenge at ColourQ. Earthy browns, bright pumpkin-y orange and crisp (September skies!!) blue! I have a sweet Thanksgiving card that I hope inspires you to play along with us.




I ran with the polka dots and the banner like points on the ends of the ribbons from the wreath inspiration photo. This adorable little mouse was left over from one of my 12 Kits of Occasions kits along with the polka dot paper. Check out the teeny tiny cork buttons I added to his dapper little vest! The banner die is Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched Banner Duo. I thought the font on this DeNami Design sentiment went well with the sweet mouse. Some twine and wooden star accents topped things off. My in house critic was not overly impressed with this one LOL! Guess he's not into browns!



Yesterday was a rainy washout for us. I hope it's a sunny pleasant day so Sweet P and I can go for a walk. She's learned her colors and points to things along the way calling out their color to me! So precious!! 

Don't forget to visit the ColourQ DT to see how they rocked the colors! ~Lisa

Couldn’t be any cuter , Lisa! Love the fall colors with the teal. No rain for us just a big windy heat wave. Today is gorgeous out and I hope its gorgeous by you too.

Love the way Harvest Mouse is playing the leaves and the bit of glitter. Hope that today was a bit nicer so you could go for a walk with Sweet P. They are such sponges at that age!

Wonderful use of the colors, Lisa, which is always a challenge for me. I've been contemplating that Harvest Mouse set and this is pushing me close to a buy.

Despite what the in house critic thinks this is just as sweet as can be. The little cork buttons are adorable (and you must have a very steady hand to stick those down so perfectly) and the twine is such a nice touch!
