CTD 259- Abundant Blessings!!

Happy Wednesday again-- "full on" fall mood today!! Here's this weeks Color Throwdown colors!!

Fall is coming... we aren't quite there yet here in the South but, the mornings are darker and evening comes on quicker. They say this WE we'll be in the 70s (10 degrees cooler than normal). I pulled out Verve's Bountiful Harvest set and did some paper piecing. Use Ambers' week 1 Viva la Verve sketch. Papers are MME Indie Chic.

For more inspiration, you'll want to stop by and visit the other team members' blogs as well as our talented September guestie - Susan Roberts (rainy). Her blog is called Rainy Day Creations.

Remember, if you don't have the exact colors, use whatever you have that's close...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun!  If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD258.  Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog.  

When you are finished with your creation, head over to the Color Throwdown blog to add your entry to the Inlinkz tool.  Can't wait to see what you create! 
Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!
