Give Thanks

Wow! Another wild October morning in the U.P. of Michigan. I got up in the middle of the night (5am) to get a drink and couldn't believe what I was seeing outside. The HUGEST snowflakes I have ever seen were just serenely floating down to the ground. At first I thought it was leaves, but there was no wind and these 'leaves' were right outside  the window! Those things were the size of a huge maple leaf. Then this morning there was snow on the roofs, and ground, but not under the trees-to many leaves on them yet. I is now almost noon and the snow is all gone. But it'll be back before we know it.
I have a couple of post to get in today. For this first card I will enter into the challenges at Pal Paper Arts PPA144-A perfect fall color challenge. MustardCajunEspresso

I will also enter it in The Crafty Friends Challenge #8  to use dry embossing on your project.

The DP is all from the DCWV Harvest Gathering Matstack, even the sentiment, which I cut out and mounted on a Spellbinder Lace Doily die-cut. I embossed the strip of Recollections copper metallic cardstock with the  Argyle Cuttlebug embossing folder. I popped the sentiment up with foam dots.
