Fall Challenges

And we're back to Monday.  Yesterday brought some sad news - I found out that a good friend of mine, Sheri, lost her husband (Shannon) this weekend.  Their young son battled cancer and kicked its butt several years ago, which prompted them to spend the next years participating in marathons and races and things to raise money for cancer support and research.  Apparently, he collapsed while training and never regained consciousness.  My heart just goes out to my friend Sheri and her son Ashton - Shannon wasn't much older than me.  :(  Keep them in your thoughts, my kind friends.  Thank you.
Just one card to share today - been busy this weekend, finished up those birthday party invitations and just had time to squeeze in my card for the:

I am also entering this into the following challenges:
Pile it On - Fall Colors Challenge
Heart Song Inspirations - Use the color orange and/or buttons
Crafty Purple Frog - Fall
Digi Doodle Challenge - Fall Colors

I used the adorable new digi image from The Greeting Farm - Cheeky Kitty - colored with Prismacolor markers.  Cardstock, DP, brads, and ribbon are from Stampin' Up!  The black paper has crows all over it and the bat is cut out from another piece of the same DP.

So my advice for the day is to tell the people you love how you feel about them - you might not get a tomorrow.  Peace.
