Paper Smooches - Nutty For You!

 photo PSblinkie_noshadow_zps6edfb405.gifHi!  I hope everyone is doing good!  Enjoying a little quiet time so I thought I'd make a card for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge Blog.   Did I ever tell you that I used to think the word "Smooches" was "kisses" in Polish?    When ever we would visit my Grandmother it wasn't unusual for she and my dad to start conversing in Polish.  Of course, most of the time they were saying things about us that they didn't want us to understand, and whenever we would say "good bye" Grandma would always ask for a "smooch".  I'd never heard anyone call a kiss that before so I thought it was a new Polish word I was learning.   HA HA!  Silly isn't it?

The challenge this time is a cool shades (every third week of the month)  inspired by Thanksgiving!  I'm really a fall person - I love the cooler temperatures and the changing leaves so of course I reached for the "Falling for You" set with the amazing acorn.   Here's a link to the Paper Smooches site.

It's not unusual for me to use non traditional colors for projects so the colors worked beautifully.   I stamped a background of the acorns and topped it with fussy cut images that I colored with copics.  At first my sentiment looked like it was "floating" so I decided to pin it down to the acorn.  And YES!  I got all four colors in there!  
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  Did you get your turkey yet?  I got mine!!

This is so darling. I didn't know that you did Paper Smooches, too. You are amazing. I laughed at your Polish story.

I imagine you would call this CAS Jeanne...but to most of us this is anything but! I love the tone on tone background pattern you created...and the shading on your images is so beautiful, like they were pre-made stickers printed perfectly! Very cute card.

I'm nutty for this card, Jeanne!! It's so much fun!! I think smooches must be a universal word for kiss ... but then maybe not, so I shouldn't assume that! Hugs, Darnell
