Delightful Dahlia

Today I have a lovey card to share with you.  The sketch is from this week's Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch challenge #189.  It was a fun sketch to work with, but I have to admit I twisted the "Autumn Splendor" just a bit.  I'll explain how I came up with this flower.  There's a young girl at our church the spends a lot of her summer growing, picking and putting flower arrangements together to sell.  She then uses the money to go out and buy Christmas gifts for those who can't afford them.  She grows a lot of Dahlias and gave me a couple last week, and shared quite a few of them with a lot of other people that work in AWANA at our church...that's where the flower card comes in.  I wanted to thank her with a flower like she gave me.  Plus this is the last week she's going to be able to sell since they need to dig everything up so they can replant next spring.   Anyway I think all the flowers she walked in were showing some of the fall splendor, it's not just in the leaves of trees. :)

We're also playing another game at Try Stampin' on Tuesday this week.  Since it's October and Halloween is at the end of the month we thought it would be fun to have a word scramble for everyone to join in.  All you need to do is unscramble the two words on my blog SMKA  RSYAC  and the other designers' blogs and you'll be entered in a drawing.  If you need more info head over to Try Stampin' on Tuesday HERE to see what it's all about.  Make sure you play along with our sketch too.  We'd love to see what you create!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
