Hi everyone! Happy Sunday! Hope your weekend has been wonderful so far! Claire is our hostess at the Paper Players this week and she has a lovely theme challenge for us:
I am afraid my mojo has gone into hiding lately and my other activities are sucking the life out of it! I just didn't do this lovely photo justice with my little card, but hopefully Claire will forgive me! And really, this card looks better in real life than it does here!! So here we are:
My Thanksgiving stamp selection is a little sparse, so I went with the wheat spray from Wishing You Well and a sentiment from Painted Harvest! I used the color challenge from TGIF:
I first embossed my base with the Quilt Top embossing folder; the image was stamped in Crumb Cake and Cajun Craze, and I added the sentiment and bow in Merry Merlot. I distressed the Merry Merlot mat as well, and also sent the stamped panel through the Subtle embossing folder for a little interest. I colored some pearls with a Bronze Blend and added them to the spray:
I pulled out some vintage goodies; the striped Cajun Craze is from many years ago, as is this sweet little sentiment from Falling Leaves:
I know I have more Thanksgiving stamps around, I just need to root around to find them, LOL! Meanwhile, I hope you will get a head start on your Thanksgiving cards and play with us at the Players! Can't wait to see you there. Check out the DT to get more inspiration:

Yesterday our church had its annual Operation Christmas Child shoebox packing party! The kids LOVE this! We have a small church, but we collect items all year long and we were able to pack 118 boxes!
We are blessed to have a Dansko shoe outlet right in my little town and they very graciously donate empty shoeboxes that would normally be bound for recycling:
After setting out all the school supplies, hygiene items, toys, shoes and whatever else collected, each person gets a shoebox and packs it up according to age and gender! Sometimes the wee ones need a little help, but most of them are old pros at it!
Cassidy is one of the old pros, LOL!
Luke is one of our new pastor's children, and he was quite serious about his selections:
And when they're all done and stacked up, the boxes make a great place to take a picture, LOL!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
