Sundays With Crissy--Challenge #8

Hey there!! It's challenge time again over at Sundays With Crissy and this time it's all about YOUR FAVOURITE TIME OF YEAR--as always, left to your interpretation. It can be a particular holiday, an annual event or an occasion or your favourite season.

My favourite time of year happens to be the FALL!! Here in Southwestern Ontario the Fall means harvest time and with that, the changing of the leaves into an array of beautiful colours, big bright pumpkins are ready for picking (which translates in to pumpkin pie YUM!!), cooler temperatures have eased their way in and it's time to celebrate Thanksgiving!! For us Canucks, we observe Thanksgiving in October, while our friends south of the border celebrate theirs in late any case it's a great time to celebrate the blessings God has given us! It's also a time to remember those who came before us, who forged ahead in adverse times, and made the sacrifices necessary to ensure we would have bountiful lives.

For this challenge, I chose to do a Thanksgiving Card. This card will soon be bound for a Canadian soldier serving over in Afghanistan to help them celebrate the season while separated from their family and friends.

I used Crissy's sweet image from Squigglefly called "Thy Cart Overfloweth"!! Here's a closer look at Mr. Turkey...

Well that's it for me!! Pop by the SWC challenge blog to see what the rest of my mates have come up with--you won't be disappointed!!!!

I hope you will join us for Challenge #8!!! Upload your masterpiece and show us your favourite time of year!! When you use one of Crissy's digi's on your project you will be entered into our random draw for a big, beautiful pad of designer paper and your choice of any 5 of Crissy's digital stamps(see blog of details)!!! You can find Crissy's images at Squigglefly, Whimsy Stamps & Wags 'n Whiskers!!! They download in seconds and they're sooooo easy to use.
