Thanksgiving Blessings


Yea...Me!  Thanksgiving cards made and mailed!!  I am trying to turn over a new leaf and mail out all those cards that I make with the intention of mailing instead of, OOPS...there they sit in my craft room. 

I made this card with the intention of mass producing and mailing with a regular stamp.  I kept it simple, with no bulk.  GEEZ...mailing a bulky card costs are outrageous and when you are mailing around 20 Thanksgiving cards, they need to be able to be mailed with just one little regular stamp. 

I started with a Kraft card stock card base and added strips of DP and a piece of embossed card stock.  The sentiment was stamped and punched out with SU! punches. I sometime tend to forget about my punches and always reach for my dies. It's time to give a little love to the punches.  I absolutely love this D2D design, Stitched Pumpkin.  It was perfect for my simple, little card.

Recipe:
Stamps - Stitched Pumpkin (D2D), Thanksgiving Blessings (Printworks)
Paper - Pumpkin Pie (American Crafts), Amber Autumn (DCWV)
Coloring - Copics
Misc - 1 1/2" circle and scallop punch (SU!), Just My Type EF (Provo Craft)

Challenges:
Celebrate the Occasion - Must use a punch!
Hooked on Craft Challenges - Something Punched
Kaboodle Doodles - Thanksgiving
Crafting for all Seasons - Thanksgiving, Thanks or Sketch
Freshly Brewed - I am Thankful
I Brake for Challenges - Four Seasons (Fall is my favorite!)

Happy Wednesday to You!
