BC178: Giving Thanks


This week we were given the theme of Giving Thanks.  Today (and everyday), I have a lot to be thankful for.  Today in particular though, I'm thankful for the nice little surprise that arrived 3 years ago.  He's my little snuggle bug and I can't believe he's 3 already!  I can't wait for this evening where he gets his big present and the phenomenal cake my friend made for him-a train.

Well, I'm clean & very simple these days with my Clear & Simple Stamps.  I honestly only stamped the sentiment on this one, which is from their Stamp of the Month, Happy Fall.  I know I keep on saying this, but I hope this next week slows down and I can get some time to stamp in the evenings.  I miss stamping, the ideas are there, I just am so darn tired at night.


I used the Fall to Layout #113 for this card, these are fabulous sketches to use for a clean & simple card.  You could also use them for a starting point and add on some embellishments and such.

Check out the other challengers here and see what they created and are thankful for.

Card details:
Stamps: Happy Fall from Clear & Simple Stamps
Cardstock: A Blanc Check, Apricot Appeal, Basic Grey patterned paper
Inks: Dish All the Dirt Brown
Accessories: Round tab punch, square punches

This is really beautiful. The brown paper is great. It looks like it might have some shimmer on it. I bet it's really nice in person.
