Dawne Carlisle- you are lucky number 76. To switch it up, I asked my oldest to pick a number between 1 and 190. She picked you!  To be fair to everyone- those people who posted multiple times were still only counted once.    Dawne- please email me at ibescrapinkris (at) comcast (dot) net 
I made this card a couple weeks ago, and misplaced it in my files. So I am sharing it today- since I have a few fall themed cards to share. I layered Bobunny brown pp with a Debbie Mumm orange. I used Reminisce stickers for the orange square and tag sticker, plus letter stickers. The swirl paper is Hambly, I turned it over and sprayed my Faux Mister ( walnut ink) over it.
Then I used a K&CO foil sticker and added a tiny bow with twine. The words Thankful for you are also Reminisce.    
Next, I was at Joanne's this week, shopping in the clearance dept, and found these great KI Memories clear stamp sets- I bought them for $.50 each! a great deal, even if I only use them a few times. I grabbed my colorbox stamp inks, and the fall icon stamp set, and stamped this fun background with the three small leaf stamps. I also stamped these two borders with a swirl stamp and then cut them out. I used a handmade green paper for the background, some new twill in this mocha color I adore, then added a paper and glittered leaf ( from MM) on top of a circle I cut with my deco scissors and topped them with a button and twine.  I didn't add a greeting- thought it would be just perfect for any occasion.   
I took the rest of the background paper I made, and added it to this card. I matted it with deep red, then added more of the green handmade paper I cut with my scallop scissors.
I added a block of the tan background cardstock, then added a strip of the handmade paper, crumpled and ruffled. I faux stitched with some zigzag rubons from Bobunny and added the sentiment stamp from the KI Greetings set. More MM cut paper and felt leaves, then topped with a BB button.     
It's tough to see, but this whole card was spritzed with my fake glimmerz mist. I'll give details on Thursday or Friday about that.    
Thanks for coming over today!
