Giving Thanks

give-thanks-cardHappy Thanksgiving! It’s a gorgeous autumn day here and I started the day by going for a short run with friends, now I’m home ready to get cooking and baking for tonight’s dinner…and tomorrow I’m heading to Kitchener at the “crack of cranky” – bright and early to chaperone for the Burlington Teen Tour Band as they march in the Oktoberfest Parade. So a busy weekend – but popping in to share this card with you all.

The Designer Series Paper strip is actually from Motley Monsters, which has a Hallowe’en theme. This page has a cute parade of monsters across the bottom…but I trimmed them off to save for another use, and used the gradient of falling leaves on this card. The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up!’s For All Things set, the background textured paper is from the Watercolour Wonder Simply Created Card kit, and the wooden heart is from the Wooden Embellishments package. So this gratitude card is an amalgamation of bits and pieces from all over the Stampin’ Up! product world! I pulled the colours in the card directly from the DSP – thankfully, Stampin’ Up! is now printing all the colours used on the backing cardstock in the package, so I don’t have to look it up in the catalogue each time. In this case, I used Tangerine Tango and Sahara Sand.

I am grateful for the many blessings in my life – hope that you have a chance to reflect upon your gratitudes (even if you’re not celebrating Thanksgiving today!). I am thankful that you stop by my corner of cyberspace to see what’s up!
