Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #16

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't posted in a couple of days. I have been sick with a cold! I slept really good last night, so I woke up feeling a little better today. I just started on antibiotics today, so I hope to feel even better tomorrow! I can't get up and do anything for very long, before I have to go lay down. I haven't been out of the house in about 3 days! My husband has been taking such good card of me, the kids, and the house! He is so amazing, and I love him so much! :) I have been trying to finish some of the challenges I wanted to do, so in between headaches, blowing my nose, and having to go lay down, I finally got some of them complete! (I don't know if anyone would want them, now!) :)

I made two cards for the Dawn's color challenge, they are not my favorite, but I think they turned out pretty good! I really love the colors and I love the name Autumn. (I wonder why?!) :)
I love to see the changing colors of Autumn too, so that is what I went for in the cards (except for the colors orange and red)! On the first card, I found that fabric at JoAnn's in the clearance bin, and I loved the colors, and I think they work good for the challange. So I hope you like them!

Supplies:

Cardstock- cream, kraft, brown, light mustard

Stamps- All Night Media- wood grain, Recollections- leaves, Target $ bin- Autumn stamps

I love it and awesome job with the cold and all. I think somebody will love getting this card. You might want to air it out a bit tho and just not tell when you made it ;P

The horse set... I think it's retired. I don't have my catty handy. I should know tho, huh since I'm a demo :)

Hi, sweet girl! I wanted to see what you had done for Dawn's challenge: YIPEE! You certainly got a hold of those fall colors and had a good ol' time! I love these! {Now I'm SOOOO psyched for fall!} Fabulous!

Sorry to hear about your cold! I've been nursing a little one, not so serious as yours, but still. It's so WRONG for "Mom" to go down with a cold so early in the school year! Drat! I hope you're back to your old self ASAP! :o)
