Feast your eyes...

Hello all!!

My last post I told you that I will sharing some exciting news tonight.. It has been bottled up all Summer and now I can finally let the cat out of the bag. I grateful to announce that I am one of the new Design Team members for Make My Monday Challenge Blog!!

I am so excited to be a part of this team.. It is one of my favorite challenge blogs with unique challenges and the inspiration cards are well..... Inspirational!

Well speaking of inspirational their is a new challenge at Make My Monday. The theme is "'F' is for..." (keep it clean please). I decided my word would be...


This card is full of feisty feasty words and images perfect our challenge at MMM.
Autumn is all about texture and color; what better way to show it then a burlap mat.
I probably went overboard but as I was coloring the cornucopia I thought it needed to
be more dimensional so I started fussy cutting all around the image and added foam to lift the
food out of the cornucopia 
Detail showing the image being popped of the card.
I am so grateful for this day! I am also grateful to all of you readers who stop by and see what I am up to here at TheGrandStampede.
Because of all the dimension this card will be hand delivered. If I am not hosting Thanksgiving dinner then this card will probably go to the one cooking the feast for that day.

I had a great time creating this card! I hope it serviced as some inspiration for you to create your own. See you at Make My Monday Challenge Blog! The more the merrier so hop on over there and say hello!

Thank you so much for stopping by and spending time with me.. I really do appreciate comments if you are so inclined.. Take care all and we will see you next time! Happy Labor Day to all in the U.S.

All the best,

You went for 'feast' and it's delicious! Great dimension and use of text. Now you've said 'keep it clean', my mind is going in the wrong direction.
