Sending Hugs

It's time again for another beautiful 
color challenge over at

Because of the Thanksgiving holiday, this will be a

 I love every single color story that Jaclyn chooses
for our challenges and this one is no exception!

Speaking of Jax, she just returned from the
Paper Crafts Magazine Cruise and will be
sharing her photos over on her blog.
It's funny...even though friends like Jax don't live
near me, I still 'miss' them when they are away.
I feel more content knowing she is back : )

I have had the new 'Farmhouse' collection from
Crate Paper for awhile now and have been so
anxious to play with it.  This challenge was
the perfect opportunity because the colors are
so spot on.
It's a fairly simple, straightforward design here.
All the details on what I used are below.

We are sponsored this week by my friend
Kelly Marie over at Lawn Fawn.

Don't forget, this is a  
so you have plenty of time to play along.

Embellishments: Chipboard Stickers from Farmhouse Collection
