Thankful for you 32

Hi there! Today I'm joining along with the PTI September Blog Hop. This month's challenge was to create a project inspired by the pretty picture shown below:
I was inspired to use the fun bird image from the Round and Round set to feature as the focal point using the chalkboard technique. I embellished with foliage from the Spruce and Sprigs set and a small die cut flower. 
I also made a similar Christmas card:
I'm joining along with the following challenges:
For sketch inspiration, I'm playing along with the Paper Players Sketch challenge:
and the Just Add Ink challenge where the challenge is to add texture (dry embossed texture on tags):
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy hopping!
Be Sweet ;)
