Hiya, Folks!! 
Today, is the very first day of the brand new November Color Challenge over on the Lindy's Stamp Gang blog! 
This challenge will run the entire month of October.  And as a bonus, those that play along and share their creations with Lindy's via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or linking up with the Color Challenge, may find themselves featured on the Lindy's blog in one of the 'Feature Friday's'.  Those who are featured on the blog will receive an email with a 20% off coupon to use at a time of their choosing.
Here's this month's color palette...

Lovely, right??!?
I'm totally diggin' the traditional fall colors mixed in with that AMAZING pop of teal blue!!  Dreamy...

 Easy Peasy, right??
Here's what I came up with...
This cute little journal/art journal was inspired by the idea of expressing yourself daily---on a small, 'index-card-sized' palette.  'ICAD' for those who are familiar.  If you're not familiar?  GOOGLE IT.  It's awesome :-)
In a nutshell, I plan on documenting a whole month of thanks, one 4x6 inch page at a time!
That's '30 Days Of Thanks'.
Thirty days to count my blessings.  To focus on the good things in my life.  To celebrate everything that is positive and beautiful. 
A gratitude journal in miniature!!
I started by stacking a bunch of heavy weight cardstock and binding it with some simple jute.
Next came the color!!  I did some fun stamping with my favorite Lindy's Flat Fabio sprays. 
Mango Mania Flat Fabio Spray (Yummy Orange, NO shimmer.)
Queen Of Hearts Red Flat Fabio Spray (Lovely Red, NO shimmer.)
Greased Lightnin' Green Flat Fabio Spray (Fabulous Green, STILL NO shimmer!)
Jolly Holly Gang Stamp Set (Technically, a Holiday set.  BUT, the leaves in this set ROCK MY WORLD!!)

And you know I had to add some GLITTER!!  And vellum leaves.  How much do I love vellum, lately??!?
A few more bits and bobs and my cover was finished (UmWowStudio chippies and black thread, anyone??)!  Now, who's ready to get grateful with me??
I'm planning to share my pages in my Instagram feed, so if you Instagram, hop on over and join me!!
And don't forget to hop on over to the Lindy's Stamp Gang blog and check out the rest of the DT's fabulous creations :-)  And then, GO GETCHA CRAFT ON and link up!
You just may win a little somethin'.
Good Luck!!
