Thanks, Friends

Here’s the final card in my “Friends Never Fade/Greenhouse Garden” suite:

Friends Never Fade in Pear Pizazz

  • Friends Never Fade and Fabulous Phrases stamp sets
  • Whisper White, Marina Mist, Chocolate Chip and Pear Pizazz card stock
  • Greenhouse Garden Designer Series Paper
  • Pear Pizazz and Chocolate Chip Classic ink pads
  • Pear Pizazz, Chocolate Chip, Marina Mist and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write markers
  • 1 3/4″ circle, 2 3/8″ scallop circle, and scallop trim border punches
  • Pumpkin Pie 1/4″ grosgrain ribbon

I love that artichokey-pineappley-image and I especially love seeing it repeated in the paper and the stamp.  What a perfect example of Stampin’ Up! coordination:  paper, stamps, colors…everything works together.  Back in my BSU (Before-Stampin’-Up!) days I would have gone crazy trying to put something like this together.  Oh, and I really love the font used for Fabulous Phrases.

A friend and I were talking about Thanksgiving the other day.  She reflected on how wonderful it is to set aside a day to be grateful for your blessings.  Although I’ve always thought of Thanksgiving in that way, something about our conversation put me in a different frame of mind about that concept of gratitude.  Our family focuses on our blessings at Thanksgiving, but I can’t really say I’ve made an effort to personally express my gratitude.  That seems like a very appropriate way to celebrate Thanksgiving.   I need more “thanks” cards.
