A Season of Blessings

Saturday, November 12, 2011

A Happy Saturday to you, Friends! I hope you've got some crafting time built into your weekend--I certainly do. I've been busy helping my DD with a school science project and had to go two whole days without making a card! So I made up for it by staying up way too late last night to make this card.  

I used The Shabby Tea Room's "A Shabby Thanksgiving" Challenge #87 as inspiration for the colors and Thanksgiving theme, and this week's Tuesday Morning Sketch #119 for the design.


The dried corn stamp, as well as the sentiment inside, is from a Flourishes set called A Season of Thanks. I actually colored two of these images. On the other one I made the ears of corn different--some had red kernels, some had black. You may see it on another card in a few days. ;) 

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I appreciate all my visitors and read every one of your lovely comments. You really make my day! :)
Have a good one!
