Forever Thankful

Today is the first Sketch Challenge at Sherrod Studio and the Design team and I are having fun! The best part is that you can join the challenge too!! All you have to do is make a card using this sketch, then go to Kim Sherrod's blog to post a comment and link your artwork. It would be fun to see what you created.

Here are some of the Design Teams cards for inspiration.

My card today is from the Harvest Blessings set. This set comes with 4 adorable images and 8 sentiments. It's the perfect set to use for your fall harvest cards.

I don't know about you but, this is my second favorite time of the year. The air is crisp, the leaves are beginning to change color and families are gathering together. For some, we can not visit families as they are too far away. If you are one of these people, why don't you make them a card. Perhaps you can bake some Pumpkin Spice Cookies and send it to them along with your card. In fact, here is a great recipe you can use to get you started. So, go on, make a card, bake some cookies and don't forget to post your artwork at Sherrod Studios. Thanks for taking a look!

3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg
