Fall Festival Fun

This card is for a sweet lady who does so much to make fellowship at our church a wonderful time. She is working feverishly to put together our annual Fall Festival. The children have so much fun dressing up and our activities include a Cake Walk, Hayride, Jumping Cage, and usually a Dunking Tank, although it's supposed to be too cold to do that this year. ( Can you imagine that, in Florida!) We also have lots of other little games, face painting, etc. Young and old love to come to this. My friend also put together a church reception this past Sunday night and an all-church shower for one of our brides-to-be last night.
I made this card for her in the hopes that it will put a smile on her face and help her remember this year's Fall Festival....unless she would rather forget it. LOL The point is to let her know how much she is appreciated. The background paper and scalloped paper at the bottom are from Basic Grey's "Mellow" which I'm still using with gusto. The "sentiment" was done with my Just-Rite stamper. I love the way I can personalize with that. My wreath is from a post from Paperlicious, and my "punch-pumpkin" is from a post from Snapnextras. Both of the ideas really grabbed me, and it all added to the theme of Fall Festival for this card. Thank you, ladies, for sharing these techniques. Don't you love Muzzie (you can tell him by the notch on his ear) dressed up as Swiss cheese?! This image is just too cute. I'm going to post this to the HM Challenge for this week since they are calling for something "natural". My bow on my wreath will hopefully qualify this card for that theme. Check out their cute cards for this week's challenge if you get a chance. Thank you for stopping by. I hope to get more posts up, but this week is tied up with many things, so I'll do what I can.
