SIP 175 Give Thanks

Happy Friday evening, wet, rainy, cold, damp Friday evening!  I don't usually post two posts in one day, but I wanted to squeak this card in for the Stamp Ink Paper gratitude challenge:

I haven't played with them for a while, and I just had to use some of the Authentique scrapping papers I bought recently....I always think they're so beautiful and then I never use them!!!  So I forced myself to make a Thanksgiving card with this sunflower image and some other goodies that I just got:

The embossed layer is some retired Confetti Cream, embossed with a Fun Stampers Journey folder called Cozy Knit; I gave it a little color with a sponge dauber and some Crumb Cake ink, just to bring out the pattern a bit.  The diecut sentiment is also from FSJ, stamped in Mossy Meadow.  I stamped just the word "give" from a retired SU set inside a little stitched circle and punched it out  tuck behind the "thanks".

I love the big bold image with the big bold sentiment!  Thanks for popping in this evening!

No Cassidy pictures, but I snagged this wee bit of moss growing in my's only about an inch across, but it was glowing against the drab pavement of my drive:

Isn't nature resilient...and tenacious?!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!
