IC135 Thanks a Bunch

Happy Tuesday, all! Wow, it's the last day of January....time flies!  Today I have a card using the Thanks a Bunch SAB set....I didn't think a set featuring carrots would appeal to me, but it's really fun to use!  I started with the sketch from Inspire.Create:

and some papers from the Dandy Designs pack, also a SAB freebie!  Here we go:

I stamped the carrots in Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede, and the leaves in various shades of green, then fussy-cut them all out.  I gathered them together on a Basic White diecut circle on which I stamped the little dots in Pale Papaya:

For a little additional interest, the horizonal panel of Mango Melody cardstock was scored on my scoring board diagonally at 1/4" intervals.  Since the DSP was pretty busy, I didn't want to detract from it but did want to give it a little something extra!  I stamped the "thanks" in Garden green, then on the inside:

added some baby carrots and the rest of the sentiment!  So cute!  Thanks for popping in today!

The bowling alley that the kids went to on Saturday has a photo booth!  What fun!  Our pastor's kids all gathered in with Cassidy for a group shot:

They are the CUTEST kids!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Oh my gosh, this is just the cutest thank you card ever with those carrots! Speaking of cute, what an adorable picture of all those kids wearing big smiles :)

Adorable card, LeAnne! The carrots did not appeal to me at first but now that I have them they are fun to play with! I used them on some Thank You gifts for customers and were a big hit! Love the colors & patterns. Your scored panel looks great under the focal image. Do you remember when SU had the Diagonal Plate that went with the Score Board? I still have mine somewhere! LOL TFS and stay warm today! Burr!

LeAnne, I know you love orange AND so do I! This is a great card and your fussy cutting is fantastic. I really like the way you scored the one piece. It's nice to see all those smiles in one place. Bowling is more fun than basketball in my book ;-)

I love those carrots! they remind me that I haven't used those much-loved Altenew ones in a very long time! I'm loving this Mod paper and all the colors of your carrots, LeAnne! AND your clever scoring.
Oh I wish I'd saved the photo strips of me and my friends from the booth of our youth - darling kids here! Cassidy looks right at home with her crew!

I have yet to use this set, but I do love a good pun so it's worth it for that! Besides, the bright orange and green is such a fresh and sunny colour combo too - what's not to love! The photo booth looks like a LOT of fun!
