Tuesday Trigger: One More Nod to Fall

I don't know about you, friends, but I do what I can to continue celebrating fall up until the very last minute of Thanksgiving itself. It's not until the day after the Big Feast that we allow ourselves to listen to Christmas music, to decorate our home, and to start on our Christmas lists. My mantra is: First give thanks, then give gifts--and maybe get a few, too. :)

So, when I saw this amazing Tuesday Trigger in my in-box, I wanted to honor that hang-on-to-fall-as-long-as-possible attitude and share it with you.

Today's Tuesday Trigger comes from Ashley Harris. Here's what she had to say:

My Tuesday Trigger was triggered by this blog post on

Here is the image that struck me:

I just went for full on lift of this:

The Colors of Fall Card by Ashley Harris

This was super fun! I love how it turned out. I just loved the colors and the feel of fall to it. Honestly, it just makes me happy. Thanks for the push!

I can't wait to see how Ashley's trigger has inspired you. And while this is great fall inspiration, as Thanksgiving comes and goes, I can totally see how this could be adapted to other types of seasons and/or occasions...including Christmas, can't you? Link yours up using Mr. Linky below and let's see how creatively you can interpret this fun Trigger!

Before I go, I wanted to give a shout-out to these Trigger Targets from last week's Tuesday Trigger from Megan Lock:

Winter Sims

Vanessa Menhorn

Thanks to everyone who played! Now friends, the "holidays" are officially upon us here in the US, and I hope you'll save some time to be creative. It will be that outlet you'll need to stay sane as the festivities--and all the work that come with them--get underway!

All triggered up,

Cath said...

Hi Cookie! I'm glad you asked this question. Yes! Please post your project inspired by this week's trigger on your blog and link it up with Mr. Linky.

The trigger I don't want you to put on your blog is the one you submit to me. You know, the one that might be the Tuesday Trigger like Ashley's is today that everyone will try? Does that make sense? If not, I'll keep watching these comments or you can email me at
