Thank You

Good morning-
Oh what a week and a new one has just begun!!
I'm so tired...and my back is starting to kill me and to top it all off it's raining!!! 
I just wanted to stay in bed all day, but of course I couldn't! :( 

It's Tuesday again, so that means a new challenge over at SweetStamps.
This weeks challenge is:
For my card this week I am using Avery from Jacqueline Hill, from the new Lil' Sweeties line, which are Novembers release that can be found HERE.
Isn't she just adorable?  I love how she is sitting pretty on that cornucopia.

I colored her with a wide range of Copic markers and used paper from Crate Paper: Farmhouse.
Going through my scrap room, I found some Flower Soft that I received from a class I took at CHA. 
Here's a side shot of the flower soft on the bundles of wheat and a few patches around the pumpkin and fruits.  I also tried to make my own little embellishments with the flower soft. I wanted them to look similar to the wheat twigs on the stamp, but I think they look more like cattails!!  LOL, but I'll let you be the judge.
