This month's challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids is a holiday or celebration card. I made a Thanksgiving thank you card.

The Paper Players has a "By the Numbers" challenge.
I used the Stampin Up 25 Days of Christmas embossing folder inked with Old Olive in a new-to-me technique. I edged the panel in gold, and then used stash ribbon to make it look like a package. The stars were too small to use my gold marker, so I thinned a drop of gold reinker, and used a pin to paint. Not perfect, then then neither are the stars!

It's the first Saturday of the month... which means it's time for a new Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge!
Hope you'll stop by the Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge blog and check out our DT fall cards. Then, stop back by later this month to link up a card of your very own. Even though we are focusing on fall cards this month, any kid-friendly card can be linked up for the challenge.
If you are interested in donating your card to one of our hospitals, please check each shipper's current needs. Due to Covid, not all of our hospitals are accepting cards at this time.
Thanks for stopping, and happy crafting!

Just Us Girls (JUGS) has a fun pink, yellow, and green color challenge. I recently saw a stencil that looked like a water blob, but it was sold out. No problem - I made my own with some old drafting film and my Scan and Cut!
Here are their colors:

Paper Craft Crew has a horizontal sketch challenge. Thought it was a great way to use a Color Burst background I had in my stash, and the Hero Arts Sentiment was perfect for the "messy" strips.
Send a Smile for Kids has a fun Thank You challenge running through the end of the month. Come join us!
