Give Thanks

This month is flying by.  It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just a few days away.  I didn't send out as many Thanksgiving cards as I had hoped.  Life and two little boys tend to take more time than I plan. But I give thanks for them too.  They'll be grown soon enough and, hopefully, I'll be able to enjoy more time for papercrafting.  Unless God has other plans for me.

It's so hard to get a good picture of a white or vanilla card.  I'm sorry this looks so dark.  Seems like it's either too dark or too glaring!

Lots of challenges for this card.... 

Fall or Thanksgiving Theme

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a project with "Leaves".
  2. Or Make a project saying "Thank You".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Thank You project with Leaves".

Thank You or Thanksgiving

The still life stamp is borrowed from a Friend's stash, the sentiment a beloved oldie from my own. The paper is from the scrap box and the ribbon, one of my all time favorites was in the ribbon scrap box. 

I was going to put this in at CASology, but the linky closed before I could get it in there.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Gifts of the Earth, Happy Harmony (both retired)
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn, Cajun Craze, SU Markers (Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Midnight Muse, Sahara Sand)
Paper:  Very Vanilla, DSP
Other:  Decorative Label Punch, Dusty Durango Polka Dot Ribbon, Dimensionals

You may have noticed some changes on my blog.  I loved that last blogging template  but it was looking really funky where I copied and pasted.  I couldn't figure out how to get the white highlights out.  The highlight button up top didn't do anything.  Anyway, I changed the template.  And channged it again.  I don't know if I'm totally satisfied yet, but I was ready for a change.   I hope this is the last change for now.  Or maybe not... And thanks Darnell for the tips on getting the tabs at the top.  One of these days I'm going to get that fixed.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  Thanks for spending some of it with me.
