Thankful Harvest

Happy Tuesday! It been rainy and dreary here the last few days and we aren't suppose to see the sun until Thursday. Even then we are supposed to be partly cloudy and then right back to rain for the weekend. Don't get me wrong. We need the rain desperately so I am happy to see it come. I did pull my tomato plants out this evening between the rain drops. They weren't growing and the snails and bugs were getting more tomatoes than I was so it was time for them to come in and ripen inside. I made a batch of tomatoes sauce last night so we just might have to have some chili this weekend! I am going to stuff some peppers also. So my harvest was plentiful this year. That brings me to my card this evening.

The image is pre-colored from Doodle Pantry from a set called Let Us be Thankful. My camera didn't do this image justice. It's just so beautiful! The background stripes are from Basic Grey. Using up more scraps. I added the scallop of brown along the side. The sentiment is from the same set. I rounded two of the corners to give it a different look.

I'm entering this card into a couple of challenges:
I am hoping that I get some play time tonight since I am posting a bit earlier than usual. Got lots of ideas swirling in my head. I am thankful that I do not have to do a Girl Scout training this weekend, Since they cancelled, I have most of the weekend free. I need to get some projects done. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you'll leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Have a wonderful hump day! This week is flying by. Take care!

I love harvest/Thanksgiving images- what a bonus to be pre-colored! Loving the strips of DSp in the BG. OK- how do you ripen the green tomatoes- we have only had about 10 turn red this year......?????

Such a pretty card....you are making me seriously think Thanksgiving and Fall cards "to do" list. Wow...sounds like you are "susy homemaker this week"....rain will do that to you. On one side of our house, I can get tomatoes up to the 2nd week in December. However, due to so much traveling this summer, I did not plant....now I regret it and will miss those December tomatoes. PS I spent most of my morning trying to get spaghetti sauce stains out of my shirt...haha
