Shopping Our Stash #323 Give Thanks

Wow it's October!!! In Canada we celebrate Thanksgiving on the weekend and the big day is October 9th.  This will be the first Thanksgiving in years it is just the two of us. Last week we had temps in the 30s celcius and last night there was a frost warning. Enough weather chit chat and on with the challenge. Shopping Our Stash give us many options for this challenge, a thank you card or something Thanksgiving themed. I decided just to make a Fall themed card which came about when I saw the super cute freebie digi at Bugaboo Designs on Friday.  On with my project.

I'm not sure what you call this fold but I call it a  trifold Z. The papers I used are a few years old but the Hello die is only 6 months old, but old considering the NBUS ones I have.

Here is the inside with the other two images that were a freebie from Bugaboo Stamps. I can't believe I have made a fairly CAS card (for me)  when I printed the images off I was in a hurry and really didn't pay attention to the size until it was printed so I needed to separate them and give them a few layers to fill the card. You know when you have a plan then it becomes plan "B" 

Showing the three images and how it folds.

I would like to participate in these challenges

Very cute, Barb! And hey, at least you started with a plan, I don't always. ;)

I love the look of your trifold Z card! Another one of those things that I always think, "I should do that more often"... then all ideas disappear when I'm sitting at my craft desk! Cute and CAS, though it looks like you spent some time on it!
