Thankful Thoughts

It's been a crazy busy weekend for my family this weekend.  We made an overnight trip to Mississippi so that our next to youngest son and I could compete in a Spartan Sprint together.  It was my second such event and for his birthday I bought our son a race entry so he could do it with me.  It was a 4.3 mile course with A LOT of water, mud and 18 various obstacles.  All in all we had a great time. 
Then today my husband wanted to play golf so he and I did that this afternoon.  And in between all that craziness I had to get just a little bit of cardmaking done.  There are a couple of challenges ending soon and I wanted to play along.
For my card I used this adorable Fall Scarecrows from Too Cute by Jessica.  I then added in the following cuts from Cricut cartridges:
     Football from Life's a Party
     Leaves from Simply Scarecrows & Pooh and Friends
After cutting out and putting all the pieces together I added a bit of twine for the scarecrow's hat band and threw a couple of skittles I found at Michael's in with the leaves that are up in the air. 
My stamped sentiment is from the Craftin Desert Divas stamp set titled Hey Pumpkin.
I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
Recipe Challenge - Die Cutting Divas - Ends November 10th (use 1  Ribbon/Twine, 2 Pattern Papers, 3 Pearls/Gems)
Anything Goes - Fantabulous Cricut Challenge - Ends November 9th
Football Challenge - Bitten by the Bug 2 - Ends November 9th

Anything Goes - DL Art - Ends November 30th
Until next time here are a couple of pictures from the race my son and I ran this weekend......
Not sure how far we trudged through this body of water
but it got chest high about half way through.

This is the wall we had to climb coming out of the water

That's my son in front of me

Our final 'obstacle' the fire pit.

Having some after race fun.

Your card is sooo cute! I love scarecrows and yours is just adorable! Love all the leaves and that the scarecrow is holding onto that football. That is so cool that you did a race with your son. I bet it was a great bonding experience. Not every Mom can do what you did! Thanks for joining us at BBTB2.
