Give Thanks

Happy Friday!

October Retreat is getting closer and my excitement is ramping up! I can't wait to see my crafty friends, learn new techniques and make some great memories!

I joined a holiday card swap for the October Retreaters. You pick a holiday and make 10 cards to be swapped with other crafters who've picked different holidays. The end result is having one card for 10 different holidays! What a neat idea! Since Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, this was an easy one for me. Since I'm making 10 cards I try to keep the theme and embellishing simple.
First I stamped the pumpkins in brown ink and heat embossed with copper powder. 
 Next I used Color Bursts on the bottom edge to color the stamping.
 I don't have any Thanksgiving stamps or greetings (gasp) so I had to create my own sentiment here using font stamps.
Wrap in twine and call it good. It's a great card for making multiples.
I'm looking forward to seeing what the other ladies have come up with!
4 more days until I get to see my crafting buddies!


  1. I am coveting that pumpkin stamp! I need to use my font stamps more your lettering looks fantastic!
