Here is my Thanksgiving / Fall inspired card. The trees here is upstate NY have been changing fast the last couple of weeks. The colors are just gorgeous! The 3 colors below Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, & More Mustard look exactly like the Trees in my backyard.

I thought I would also do some place card holders for the guest that will be coming over for dinner on Thanksgiving Day. I will place a little goody of some sort in them. Just not sure what at the moment!
