The card below is from Katie Bondroff.  Her family has a tradition of having a special corn casserole at holiday dinners.  She said they get fresh corn and freeze it so it's like fresh from the garden when they use it for their casseroles.  For her card below, she chose Corn, Cover-A-CardTM Distressed Denim, Distressed Lines, and Scratches to create her wonderful Fall card.  How pretty and thank you for sharing your family tradition too, Katie!!

Shannon White chose Trees For Sale.  Shannon said, "Growing up my folks always made a big deal about going to get the Christmas Tree.  We actually took the whole day and would drive to a tree farm in the snow and cut it down ourselves.  Mom would make a big thermos of hot cocoa and Dad would chop down the tree we picked.  8-) A really beautiful card, Shannon, and thank you so much for sharing your tradition too!  Good luck in the drawing.
