Greetings everyone and to my friends in the United States, Happy Thanksgiving! I have much to be thankful for today--family, friends and the ability to share with you all, a craft that I love! I am so thankful for your continued visits to the Canopy, your supportive comments and the friends that I have made through blog-land! So for today's Create with Connie & Mary challenge, I had to make a Thanksgiving card even though today's colors are a bit non-traditional for this holiday:
Lovely aren't they? Greens and blues are some of my favorite colors and paired with River Rock they just sing! Take a look:
I've been wanting to try sponge daubers with the medallion from Day of Gratitude so I did just that starting with the lightest color, River Rock in the center and proceeding with Lucky Limeade and finally Night of Navy on the edges. I stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock and then did some fussy cutting.
I inked and stamped another one, punching out the center with a 1 3/8" circle punch and decorating the center with pearls! I carried the medallion into the inside:
stamping in River Rock and although the Night of Navy sentiment stamp I used is retired, it is available as a digital file in My Digital Studio. Remember you don't need MDS to use a digital file--just download and use in any word processing or graphics program!
I chose this sentiment because it perfectly sums up my thoughts for you today...thank you! Please be sure to stop by Create with Connie & Mary to see all the wonderful creations from the rest of the design team. Thanks for stopping by today, friends!
