Pals Paper Arts 218 and Freshly Made Sketches 152

You know how I love to combine challenges, right?  Well, this week these two challenges were made for each other!  The color challenge at Pals Paper Arts and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches come together wonderfully.  Add the images from the For All Things Stamp Set found in the new Holiday Catalog and you have a clean and simple Autumn card.

Today was the first day I felt like being in my craft studio.  It's been a sad week for me as my 83 year old friend who lived across the hall from me passed away last Saturday.  I didn't want to make a sympathy card so I went with a Fall card.  I will miss him.  He loved the cards I make so this is a tribute to Bill.  I know he is again with his wife and happy now.
