Happy Sunday, peeps! Laurie is our hostess at the Paper Players this week, and she has a lovely sketch for us. I think I might have to pin this one for future reference!
I am still making Thanksgiving cards…..I can send them out tomorrow and they’ll still arrive in time, right?! I pulled out the lovely, sadly retired, Truly Grateful set and some retired DSPs and went to work:
I stamped the wheat bundle in Hello Honey on a stitched tag from Simon Says Stamp, then stamped it again and cut it out, sponging it and popping it up with dimensionals:
It looked a wee bit plain, so I added a little Soft Suede ribbon tied with some Linen Thread to match my Soft Suede banner. I cut out a stitched banner (same die set) in Pool Party and isolated just the word “Thankful” with a marker to stamp on top. My Hello Honey panel is matted with some Cajun Craze cardstock and the whole shebang was mounted on a Hello Honey card. I found this sentiment in my Harvest Home set, stamped it in Soft Suede on the inside and used my Versamark pad to stamp the wheat again in a lighter tone. I love this look:
The “Happy Thanksgiving” is from last year’s Paper Pumpkin kit! I have gotten a lot of use from that little set! I am also entering this in the Papercraft Crew Challenge #171, which is a theme challenge of giving thanks!
I hope you’ll join along with us and create something with this wonderful sketch! You can see everyone’s creation here, or visit us at the Paper Players!
Last week we found a slate-colored junco and a wee little mouse, both of whom had met their demise somewhere near our house…thankfully not IN the house! After a few tears (Grampy told her the mouse went to mouse heaven, at which she replied “There is NO mouse heaven, Grampy!”), we had a little burial for both of them, complete with blanket! She insisted on digging with her own shovel, although Grampy did have to help her with that:
Never a dull moment! Enjoy your day!
