Sweet Sunday

A glorious Fall weekend here!  I hope it's the same where you live.  :-)  In less than a week my family will gather to share a feast of thanks for all the good Lord has bestowed upon us.  I feel incredibly blessed knowing my family will have a lovely dinner but always feel for those that are struggling to meet ends.  I like to support a local food drive for those in need.   I often wonder where my donations will end up but mostly I hope it brings a smile and nourishment to those receiving.  I encourage you to support a food drive in your area.  Most churches and schools will provide a box or pantry to drop goods off.  We have a local organization in Northern Virginia, Food for Others, that will accept, food, funds, or time.  So no need to fret if you can't give a dollar amount.  Your time is appreciated.  I love this! 

Today my card  for Sentimental Sundays features a sentiment from Raindrop Echo Designs  (of course!) that is incorporated onto a digital image from The Graphics Fairy.

I used a leaf doily in a burnt orange, olive green and cream cardstock, and MME Lush flocked pattern paper.  I did a little stitching and distressing with ink and scissors to make a vintage inspired card.  I found some seam binding I bought ..6 years ago.. gasp!  Talk about unused products.  I found it at MJ Designs.  Does anyone remember when Michael's was called this?  It may well  be over 6 years!  I just know I bought it at my old house and that's been quite a bit of time ago. I tied a double bow with an orange Autumn Leaves buttons.    I then used Platinum Stickles to accent the mum. 

My card is for the following challenges:
Creative Stamp Friends: #12 "Vintage" Mum image
For Fun: "Turkey Day Every Day
Gingersnaps: #79 "Stitching"  around the olive green cardstock
Papertake Weekly: "Autumn"  what says Autumn more than a  beautiful mum? 
Raise the Bar: #45 "Grateful"  sentiment
S2G: #83 "Thanks with leaves" leaf doily and sentiment
Sentimental Sundays: "Thanks or Thanksgiving" sentiment is from "Gratitude" set
Stamp Something: "Something with Thanks" sentiment

I agree, it is so important to have awareness for and caring for those that need extra help, I know there are so many homeless folks, and also those with homes without enough food, and anything we can do to help has value.
This card is lovely, I really like the stitching on it and the warm colours :-)
