Fall Flowers

     Hello friends!  I have some fall flowers to share with you today.  These chrysanthemums are part of a Year in Flowers Set 3 from Flourishes.  They represent flowers for October. 
     It just so happens this beauty, if I say so myself...., is going in the Timeless Tuesday challenge at Flourishes.  The challenge is to make a fall card using all the colors in this card.
     I'm also going to enter it in the Basic Grey challenge.  Their challenge is the sketch that I used here.  Of course the paper is Basic Grey.  I really like the sketch and will use it again.
     And, the last entry is the Heart to Heart Card Drive
honoring caregivers of patients with Alzheimer's.  The goal is to touch the life of a caregiver as much as they touch the life of their patient.  There is a huge prize involved and you have until this Sunday to make your card and send it to a caregiver.  Just click here for all of the important details.  
     We have caregivers in our town called The Fountain of Youth Daycare.  They give families relief from the day to day responsibilities of caring for Alzheimer's patients.  I'll send them my card.  
     Hope your day is blessed with sunshine!
