Fall is right around the corner ...

Hello my friends!
I have a busy week planned (again! lol) but wanted to share with you a card I took the time to make over the past weekend to participate in a few fun challenges.  I know ... I should be working on my design team projects but I just couldn't help myself!  I'm sure you understand!  LOL!

(For directions on creating this fancy fold card and others, click on the FANCY FOLDS TAB at the top of my blog then click on the title to go to my post with the measurements/directions)

With Fall right around the corner and working on some card projects for upcoming Fall Craft Shows, here is the creation I have to share with you today.

One of the challenges that caught my attention is the new August challenge for Scor-Pal.  Of course you have to use more than one score.  No problem there with this Tri Shutter Fold, but also they ask you to follow the theme of 'Food for Thought'.  Well, I figure pumpkin is food and don't you just love that Thanksgiving pumpkin pie?  I sure do!  And thankful for all the blessings (including the pie) each year has given me!

Other challenges I had in mind while creating this fancy fold card are the always fun challenges at Cheery Lynn Designs (Anything Goes) and Craft-Dee Bowz (Anything Goes using a bow).  Craft-Dee Bowz also has a fun filled blog hop tomorrow and Friday ... be sure to check it out!

And here are a few other challenges I thought I'd share in:
That Craft Place Challenge - Autumn or Steampunk
The Ribbon Girl August Challenge - Anything but a Square + ribbon
Crafty Calendar August Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Cardmakers & More - Fancy Folds

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Hope you're week is going well for you and you'll have the chance to stop back again real soon!
As always ...
