and I'm back in the game!

Sort of!  But I actually completed some challenges today that had absolutely NOTHING to do with DT assignments!  I'm so excited!  and it's still early...so I'm hoping to get some more done!  I based my card on Mercy's Tuesday sketch and then took a peek at a couple of other challenges going on to see if there was something that would spark my mojo...and man oh man did I find some! 

Challenges:
Pile It On #23 - use leaves
The Pink Elephant #40 -  Be Thankful
Color Throwdown #68 - red, orange, yellow, dark neutral

Supplies:
Paper: Basic Grey Indian Summer; Cardstock: CTMH, Bazzil; Stamps: CTMH - Flourished Blessings; Ink: CTMH - Cranberry, Sunflower, Autumn Terracotta, Chocolate; Bookplate - CTMH; Pearls - Recollections; Ribbon - Unknown
