SSSC132.....Thankful Thoughts

Good Morning Peeps!!!
It is Sunday which means it's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Here is the SWEET sketch Karen has for us this week:

I am dreaming of fall here, I know it is a bit early, but it is getting closer, school has started which means football games and the days are gradually getting shorter so fall can not be far behind.
I am using a couple of sneak peek items on this card. The stamp set is the new "Always Thankful" stamp set from Stampin' Up and you can get this set on September 1st. Also the DSP I used is the oh so lovely "Spice Cake" and may just be my favorite paper this year!

The base of my card is Early Espresso and I followed that with some very vanilla card stock. Then comes the fabulous DSP and then three more strips of the same DSP.
I stamped the main image onto very vanilla with black stazon and colored it in with my aqua painter and ink pads. I did stamp the image again to get an extra pumpkin and leaf to add to the image. The leaf is covering a little smudge and the extra pumpkin on the ground is there because I just think it is cute!!!
The sentiment comes from the "Grateful Greetings" stamp set. I used an oval element in place of the circle on the sketch. I added some Pool Party ribbon and three pretty little basic pearls.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.

OK, let's see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team has in store for us this week:

Karen-Paper Playhouse- is taking a few weeks off
