Happy Thanksgiving!


Whether you're in the U.S. and today is your Thanksgiving day or not, I wish you all a blessed day today and encourage you to spend some time like I will be - counting my blessings.

Today's is the last card with a fall theme that I'll be posting in awhile.  Tomorrow officially starts the Christmas season, and with it several family birthdays and anniversaries. 

This is a pretty simple card.  The sentiment is in two parts.  "Happy" is an outline sticker, and "Fall" is a piece cut from one of the sheets in a DCWV Mat Stack.  All of the papers and card stock - except the cream colored ones - are from small Fall-themed Mat Stacks.  I had cut the green glitter piece before my die cutting machine broke, and decided it was a great shape for holding my sentiment.  I traced around the die on my cream colored paper and cut it out to form a mat for the green.  A square orange piece was cut from scraps and matted with more of the cream paper (cut with scalloped edge paper cutter).  All pieces were inked before adhering them in place.  I think it would have looked a little better if the focal had been moved just a bit to the left - but I didn't have time to perfect these cards!  A couple of ribbons form a border of sorts, and the I used three different colors of ribbon bows to finish off the card.
