A pretty autumn-colored card for you today on this beautiful Thanksgiving morning:
- Simply Soft Stamp set
- Naturals White, Old Olive, More Mustard and Cajun Craze card stock
- Old Olive and More Mustard Classic ink pads
- Champagne Mist shimmer paint
- Rhinestone Jewels
I made this card for my mom’s birthday. She’s a gardener and a good one, and I wanted her card to be full of flowers, so I put the message on the inside. I cut out a few of the blossoms and stuck them on little pieces of dimensionals – it wasn’t hard – I can hear some “no cutting” stampers groaning!
One of my favorite things to do is make a card FOR someone. Creating a design that suits the recipient and the occasion is part of the pleasure, but for me the best part is enjoying thinking of that “someone” while I’m making the card. I live apart from many people whom I love, so making something especially for them allows me to draw them near if only in my mind.
Today, as every day, I am grateful. My life is abundantly rich in beauty, comfort and the love of family and friends, and I make an effort to live with thanksgiving. I am very blessed, and I wish the same for you. Happy Thanksgiving Day.
