Hello Crafty Friends,

I hope you had a relaxing Veteran's weekend.  I am thankful for all the men and women that have fought and still fight for my freedom.  Yes, I enjoyed the day off from work, but it is more than a day to thank them.  Without them we would not have the freedoms we have.

Today, I am sharing another card using the Color Me Fall Background stamp, but in a different way.  The past few posts I have been showing you didn't colors and ways to use a background stamp.

Here is my card using the background stamp as the background for a fall coffee inspired shaker card.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Thanksful Friends
Paper: Oatmeal Cookie Cardstock, Whip Cream Cardstock, a variety of other fall colors.
Ink: Pumpkin Bread, Oatmeal Cookie
Accessories: Oatmeal Cookie Satin Ribbon, Journey Natural Twine

Let's get to my project.  

I love Doodlebug Designs paper and today I had to use it for the theme, "Down on the Farm".

I recently went on a field trip with my school to the farm and I had a first.  I got to milk a cow!  I can't wait to add my pictures to this layout.

I love this little cow.  He had to go onto my layout.

I had to add this cutie as well.

All of the supplies are from Doodlebug and Fun Stampers Journey.
