Thankful Crazy 4 Bugaboo Photo Inspired Challenges!

Hello my friends and welcome to the weekend!
I have a very special post here for you today to share TWO different challenges with one card!
First, as you know I've been guest designing this month for the
Crazy 4 Challenges
They have a wonderful theme this week and very fitting right now which is "Time to be Thankful" - they would like to see your "thankful" creations.  Please be sure to visit the blog for more inspiration!

I also have another challenge up today to share with you at
Catch the Bug (Bugaboo Challenge Blog)
They have a gorgeous photo to help inspire your creation this week!  It's a wonderful reminder of how beautiful this time of year is with all of the changing colors!  (Please see the photo below or on the challenge blog with inspiration from the design team.)

So with BOTH of these challenges in mind, here's the creation that I made:
With all of the trees turning color this time of year, there is always lots of raking and harvesting to do!  So I thought this would be a great card for someone to show how "thankful" you are to them.
I've used this adorable Bugaboo image called Pumpkins and Leaves.  I've used several different colors of Copic markers to blend everything together here.  I've also made a blueish background for a bit more color and then I've added a silver brad to the wheel on the wheel barrel.  I also added a stamped greeting in the corner from Simon Says Stamp. I had so much fun going through my Fall paper stash to find the right colors and design for this too!  Always good to use up more of that! :)

Here are the challenges for this card:
Catch the Bug - inspirational photo (see below)

Crazy 4 Challenges - Time to be Thankful
Sentimental Sunday - Giving Thanks (with sentiment)
Pile it On (PIO46) - With Thanks
Sketch N Stash - sketch
Papertake Weekly - Giving Thanks
Creative Inspirations - Thanksgiving/Thank you
Fab 'N' Funky - anything goes
4 Crafty Chicks - anything goes
Aud Sentiments - any sentiment

I hope you've enjoyed my creation share for you today and now please go on over to the challenge blogs to find out more information and see the gorgeous inspiration.  THEN...get to your craft table and make up something that YOU are thankful for and enter the challenges!  I'd love to see what you all come up with! Thanks for stopping by!  I am very thankful to all of you!  Enjoy your weekend!
