Happy Thanksgiving



Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends.  We are eating late tonight, so I have a bit of time to post a couple of cards where the challenges are about to end.

First up is a card inspired by the challenge at Cupcake Inspirations #385.  I was inspired by the theme of thank you and also the cuteness of Lawn Fawn, this week's sponsor.


I am also linking this card up at CAS-ual Friday's #161: Be thankful and Simon Says Monday to use 3 of something.




I made a tag with those same little birds--perfect for a holiday thank you gift, and I am (finally) playing along with Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags challenge.  This tag was inspired by the adorable tags on day 15 of Tracey's challenge, where Lawn Fawn was the sponsor.  I am entering this tag at Simon Says Wednesday to use a die.




I used the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #199 for my next card, which I am also entering at Addicted to CAS #101 where the challenge is ombre.


Using the Misti made lining up the sentiments a breeze and I used little cubes of Altenew Inks that came packaged up as an ombre color grouping.  Hard to see in this photo, but I used a numbers impression plate.



That's it for me today.  Off to find some turkey.


Thanks for Visiting

  2. Love the birds; they are so funny-cute and looking good at the card and label!
    The sentiment is perfect for the two challenges and looks so modern-clean! That is time spent well with beautiful results! Hugs, Gerrina

  14. What a wonderful collection of creations! I'd be hard-pressed to pick a favorite and think each one is so original and clever! i loved your birdie thank you card and thought the framing job you did (with the asymmetry) gave it a really stunning look. And what a treat to see how the birdies looked on a tag!! And the Celebrate card was so elegant with that repeated sentiment and the subtle ombre effect. You've shown a lot of artistic versatility here and it was a joy to see your creations. Thank you for sharing them with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
