Expressing Gratitude

November can be a stressful month as Christmas  commercials begin airing on tv and holiday merchandise starts to appear on store shelves . The holiday countdown begins and you find that you are way behind on your crafting. This describes me every year! Hopefully you are more organized than I am! I seem to start with a plan and a list and then I get side tracked with more projects. (This problem has grown with the creation of Pinterest!) One thing I’ve been aiming towards this year is getting my holiday cards completed three weeks ahead of the date. I barely made it for Thanksgiving…and I am grateful!

IMG_0635.JPGThis card is made using mostly Stampin’ Up supplies. I started with Soft Suede for the card base; one of my favorite neutral colors.  Very vanilla was used for the next layer using the Woodland embossing folder (139673). The leaves were cut with a Tim Holtz die in So Safron (sponged with Pumpkin Pie ink) Pumpkin Pie (sponged with Cajun Craze ink) and Real Red (sponed with Cherry Cobler ink) cardstock. They were then put through the BigShot in a retired spiderweb embossing folder and sponged once more with a bit of Crumb Cake ink.  A strip of Gold Foil cardstock (132622) lays behind a strip of Very Vanilla for the Sentiment from Sheltering Tree (137163). A liitle Linen Thread (104199) gives it a finished look.

Now it us time to finish my fall tablerunner!

Thank you for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
