Happy day after Labor Day! Doesn't it feel like Monday? My card today uses a new set from the Holiday Mini Catalog that will go live tomorrow, and it's called Many Blessings! Here we go:
And I used the sketch from Fab Friday to get me started:
I love this little set; it has some seasonal images that are small enough to be colored in quickly, whether it be with Blends, which I used here, regular markers, or watercolor pencils! For my card, I stamped the image in Early Espresso:
My banner is also Early Espresso, which I embossed with the Subtle EF; I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out the main image as well as my sentiment, then added some layers and embellishments. The background is from the Share What You Love DSP pack; I like the country feel to this particular print:
And I really don't have any current Thanksgiving stamps, but I remembered this sentiment from Painted Harvest, so I stamped it on the inside and stamped the focal image again, this time in Sahara Sand:
I am thankful for you!
It's a bitterweet day for our family; my dad finally agreed to move out of his home and to move in with my sister. I know he is sad to leave his neighborhood and friends, but he really needs more care and shouldn't be alone. So it's a new reality for all of us. I SO appreciate and thank you for your prayers, as this will be a challenging transition for all of us! But at least he won't be two and a half hours away!
My other sister and her family were up over the weekend for my niece's wedding, and my nephew, who is at West Point, was able to visit as well. Cassidy roped him into playing some games with her; he's a good sport!
Thanks for visiting today and have a blessed day!
