Giving Thanks

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope that today finds you well.  As I sit here typing this it is rainy and gloomy outside.  It's been so nice the past few days.  I've been outside a lot with the puppy the past few days and it's been very nice.  Just yesterday I was sitting out back on the deck watching her, reading my book and it was nice to look up and see all the different colors on the trees and bushes.  The lady bugs flying thru the air all around me and the nice breeze.  It was a truly wonderful fall day.  Now there is today, ugh.  Rainy, gloomy.  It's a great night for soup!!

Enough of that ~ wanna see a card?

Now this card looked a whole lot better in my head.  I had plans for it, but it just did not come out like I expected.  That's been happening a lot lately.

I stamped the image from Great Impressions and colored it in with my pencils and gamsol then cut it out with my CB and Large Label nestie and adhered it on to a piece of rust cs that I punched out with my Small Scallop Rectangle nestie.  The base card is Close to Cocoa that I added a piece of ivory cs that I ran thru the CB with my Autumn Type folder.  I also took my sponge and added some Ruby Red ink to the word 'thankfulness' at the top of the ivory panel.  Before I adhered the image panel to the card I added the leaf brad in the top corner - I wanted to cover up the back of the brad, I don't like to see things on the inside of my cards.  Once that was all adhered I added the sentiment from Paper Impressions (very old) that I stamped with my Big & Juicy Foliage stamp pad and I was complete.

Like I said, not what I had wanted but it's what I got.

I hope to be back tomorrow to show you some more.  With it being rainy outside I think that Dixie will not want to be out all day and play.  Have a great afternoon!!
