Four-of-a-Kind #15

It's my favorite time of the month again--Four of a Kind posting time.  I think most of my readers know what is about to happen, but if you are new, please click here to get the scoop.  This month, I am our hostess, and I decided to focus on fall--rich fall colors, my favorite PTI fall set--Leaf Prints, and some sentiments all around a theme of 'thanks'.

Here is a picture of what I sent out:
The first things I made from my own kit were some gift card holders, that have already been used--I needed them to hold the grocery store gift cards that went into the Thanksgiving Baskets I made for the homebound elderly in our community.  The two on the left are made using the PTI Pillowbox die, and the one on the right is made from the PTI seed packet die.
Here are my cards:

This one is cased from Laurie Willson's CAS(E) this Sketch sample here.

Well, that's it for me.  I still have leftovers from my kit--plus of course all the stamps and dies, so I am excited to see what everyone else did, so I can CASE them.  And, here is a link to my pinterest board where I pin everone's Four-of-a-Kind creations.
