Fall Blessings ABC Style

It's Monday, so it's time for a new

This week's challenge is a FUN one... it's time for three in a row. What does that mean? It's  pretty simple really. Look at the chart below and choose three items  in a row to use on your card. The row you choose can be vertical, horizontal or diagonal.

I chose to  go horizontal (though I did actually use 5 of the items on the grid).

Here's my card:

Brown Card Stock
Fall Theme

I discovered something in making this card - I don't like working wth twine. LOL! It's un-ruly!

Here's the inside of my card:

This card is actually quite special - because it's NOT just for the ABC Challenge this week.

This is the 5th of November, which is the day that the Crafty Gals blog group gets crafty. This month Jackie is our hostess. THANK YOU for a great theme, Jackie!

 Here's her theme:

 "Fall Blessings"

November is for Thanksgiving & we al have so many things to be thankful for so my challenge for you this month is to create a project to showcase our Blessings. It can be a card, shadowbox, picture frame, scrapbook layout, mini album, et. Please make whtever your heart desires as long as it features what you are thankful for & also I want you to use a Fall theme for your creations.

What am I thankful for? I thought about that a lot - so many things! Family! Friends (online and in real life)! Obviously those are way up there! But most of all I am thankful for God! My relationship with Him is so important. He's the only one I share EVERYTHING with - my joys, my struggles, my dreams, my fears. Everything! And I am so thankful that He is always there. That He hears and answers my prayers - even when I don't know what to pray.

I'm sure that the Crafty Gals have a lot of beautiful Fall Blessings on their blogs. Please check them out (the links are in my left sidebar). And don't forget to play along in the ABC Challenges 3 in a Row this week!
