MFP Speedy TV - Halloween/Harvest challenge and an Award

I hope you had a great weekend. Friday, my hubby and I went  on business to a military base after first stopping at a scrapbook store. Then, some more shopping and dining out which made for a fun day. Saturday,  we were off to see the University of Alabama football game...we won! Yay!! As of now, we're #2 in the nation. Brag, brag.....

I made this as a Halloween/Harvest the pumpkins which are from Mark's Finest Papers stamp set called Thankful Mums and Pumpkins. I colored with Copics, then stamped the sentiment onto the pumpkin, also Mark's Finest Papers Daffodil and Anise. Added a ribbon, some raffia, and a button..all finished. The card is for challenge #4 on MFP Speedy TV. Hope you'll join us.

I received this wonderful butterfly award from Carol at Our Little Inspirations. It has been a while so she will probably not remember giving it to me. LOL Sorry, Carol, to be so long posting it. I really appreciate you thinking of me.
When receiving this award, I am to answer the questions below:

Name your favorite color - coral

Name your favorite song - Don't listen to much music except  my choir music...I love Amazing Grace in many versions...bagpipes, for one.

Name your favorite dessert - Lemon pie

What annoys you at the moment - Occupy Wall Street demonstrations

Your favorite pet -dogs
Black or white - Can't really say. For elegance, I like black. White for clean and crisp.

Your biggest fear - being in a  space with no windows..I'm very claustrophobic

Best feature - kindness..I hope people see me that way.

Everyday attitude - easy-going

What is perfection? - the beach/ocean or the forest

Guilty Pleasure -Doughnuts

When you're upset you - Take on different moods..according to what I'm upset about. .. quiet, eat, don't eat..blow my stack, pout,  slam things so as to make noise so SOMEONE will notice (that's not very kind, is it? Well, that is rare. :-)
I am supposed to pass this on to several more wonderful bloggers. I told Carol I don't like to choose so I'll just say to my blogger friends, take this award if you would like and say it is from me. You all deserve it. Thanks again, Carol!!!

Great card with those awesome pumpkins! I love the colors and button accent!
I wasn't worried about the blogging award, but TFS a little about yourself :) It was my pleasure to pass it along to you!

So festive ... pumpkins, raffia and fall leaves! You captured it all on this gem! After seeing all your pretty cards colored with Copics, I'm thinking I might need to invest in some. I have Prismacolor Markers.

As hard as it is to type this, you deserve to have bragging rights. The boys are looking like professionals on the field. Should be an awesome game Saturday.
