Thanks a Bunch

Happy Saturday, peeps!  Hope you have a nice weekend planned!  It's raining here so I SHOULD be cleaning up my craft room....we'll see how that goes, LOL!  I do have a quick little card for the FMS sketch by Judy, as well as the Sunday Stamps color challenge...I love orange, but it took me a little while to figure out what I wanted to do with it!


So since I had this Basket Bunch still on my desk from last week (remember I said I needed to clean up!?) I thought a little punny card would be fun:

I used Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Sahara Sand as my colors; I stamped the carrots in black and colored them with Blends, then diecut them and layered them on a panel of Sahara Sand.  The ribbon was some Grapefruit Grove retired grosgrain that I "dyed" with a Pumpkin Pie Blend.  Once it dried, I adhered it to the bunch of carrots with a glue dot.  The horizontal panel is Pumpkin Pie, diecut with a die from Ornate Layers, and the sentiment was stamped in Cajun Craze:

I also added some background speckles using the Sweet Ice Cream set!  Thanks for visiting today!  Enjoy it and be blessed!  And be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge! 

A little funny my sister sent me:

"To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice."  Proverbs 21:3

Love your card! Those carrots are so cute with just enough orange on the front. The design is great. Today is clean up the craft room day for me too. I haven't done anything to it since 1/18/21. What cards I have made since then were made at the kitchen counter! It's time!! Clear sky and sun with high of 88 here today...a very good reason to stay inside with the AC running.

Such a cute and clever card, LeAnne! Love the bunch of carrots "tied" up with a bit of ribbon and the splatter in the background. So wonderful to see your card in the SSC gallery, thanks for joining us!
