Just For You

Hello Fellow Crafters!  I was making this card for my card club swap tonight when I noticed the {Freshly Made} Sketches #7 had nice vertical lines too, so I added the scallop border and Voila! my card was done. What fun. I had begun the card last night, but had gotten too tired to finish. Happens to all of us, right? Why do we craft late at night? Anyone know? Guess that is when my creative juices flow.

Anyway, here I used one of my favorite dsp called Elegant Soiree and heat embossed just the line image flower from the Stampin' Up! 's Fifth Avenue Floral setBaja Breeze and Soft Suede along with Very Vanilla for the card base, are the only colors on this card. Pretty simple in style and to make.The sentiment is a Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp popped up on a  punched tag called Modern Label. All supplies are from Stampin' Up.
Take care, and thanks for looking.

Join The Gratitude Challenge

Quoting Susan in her Simplicity blog, "Thanksgiving here in the United States gets lost between Halloween and Christmas. It's become just another day to over-eat and watch football. Sadly, its original purpose--to celebrate and give thanks for the blessings of a plentiful harvest--has been lost. The Gratitude Challenge asks you to make cards and send them to people for whom you are grateful, to those who have contributed to the plentiful harvest of your own life."

I am in full agreement with Susan and her friend Sarah who designed the badge that I placed on the right here, so am posting today a fall card. I made it ages ago, but never sent to anyone. Not sure who is going to receive it. :) All the supplies are from GinaK Designs, her Autumn Splendor collection from 2010.  Who is going to join the gratitude challenge? No posting required, just follow your heart. Happy autumn everyone, my second favorite season!
