Thankful Challenge Going Grey with Scrap-Creations

Here it is Tuesday again and time for another fun challenge over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. I love all the wonderful things about the Fall season. The beautiful colors, the crisp air and seeing all the animals scurrying about getting ready for the winter. When I saw this Mo Manning Fall image I fell in love with it immediately. I don't have a cat but our neighbor behind us has quite a few and they squeeze under our fence to lay in the sun and and chase the chipmunks hiding in the leaves. We sit and watch them all the time. So when the challenge was
"Be Thankful" this week I immediately made a card thinking how thankful we are to be able to just sit and enjoy these small creatures enjoying the season just like us at our house.
I tried my hand at making the cat's fur look scruffy. I used my blender pen to soften it after I marked it up. What do you think of it? I think I like the way it looks.
The DT all put their own spin on Thankful and their creations are gorgeous so be sure to stop by and be inspired by their creativity.
I hope you stop by and play along with us this week. I can't wait to see what you have created!
Here are some other wonderful challenges that fit my card
Basic Grey Challenge 31-This week the challenge is Autumn/Harvest Time. I used the new Basic Grey Autumn 6x6 pack for this card I love the colors in it. The DP went perfect with this image.
Copic Creations Challenge #37-This week their challenge is colorless blender tricks. I used my colorless blender to do the cat's fur. I couldn't live without my blender pen!
Digital Tuesday Challenge #82-The challenge this week is to use a nontraditional craft item. The leaf pins I used I bought in the sewing dept. they are just common pins but I thought pretty enough to use on a card you just have to be careful not to get pricked by the sharp ends on them.
Mo's Challenge DP2 #54-This week their challenge is "The Colors of Fall". I love all these colors!
I Did It Creations Challenge #26-Their challenge this week is "Surprise Me". The challenge is anything goes.
Speedy The Cat's Friends Challenge #26-This challenge is to use die cuts or punches on your creation. I used my nesties fir the image and saying and I used my leaf punch for the pile of leaves.
Stamp Something Challenge-This week the challenge is "October Digi Day! The digi I used was one of Mo Mannings wonderful images.
Stampin' For The Weekend Challenge #49-This week the challenge is Halloween/Fall. I did a Fall card this time around for the challenge. I use and need a lot of Fall cards around now!
The Crazy Challenge CCH38-This week their challenge is "Tons of Shapes". I used circles, rectangles, and leaf shapes on my creation!
The Paper Players Challenge #21-This week the challenge is a recipe 1 DP series paper, something punched, and a sentiment. My DP is from the Basic Grey Fall pack and my punched items are the pile of leaves.
Scrappy Frogs Challenge-This is a new challenge for me. Their challenge is to "Give Thanks". A great challenge for this time of year!
