It's one of my favorite days of the year! Thanksgiving has finally arrived. I just love this day. Being surounded by family and eating are two of my favorite things. So this holiday is just perfect. I'm so blessed in many ways and truly thank God for my family, friends and my life.
One of the things that I'm really thankful for is having a hobby that I'm so passionate about. Working with the companies and manufacturers that I do is such a joy. My big excitement today is that I am being featured on the Prima blog. It's my Designer Day! Each Thursday a different member of the design team is featured. It's been so fun getting to know all of the girls a bit better. I hope you'll stop over and read my post (and maybe leave a comment). I have several projects up there, too.
Speaking of projects, I made a few things yesterday. I was off and spent the day in my pajamas. It was great! I decided to put aside my assignments and create some things just for fun. First off is this card that I did for the Color Room. The colors were some of my favorites and I decided to go with a non-traditional holiday theme.
I used Melissa Frances papers, a Bazzil chipboard snowflake that I painted and added glitter to, some SEI ribbon and a MME tag. I made some glass glittered stars yesterday and added them, too. Just felt like doing something glitzy and glittery.
My next card is for a new challenge that I've come across. Monda Pendleton is one of my favorite card makers and she has a fun color challenge, so I decided to play along. Here is the beautiful inspiration:
I decided to combine Mona's color challenge with the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch of the week. I love Kazan and Laura's sketches and haven't played along in a while, so I was excited to have the chance to do so!
Anyway, here is my interepretation:
The base of the card is a Making Memories journaling notebook page. The kraft part of the card is what opens up. I used My Mind's Eye die cuts and paper and a Melissa Frances chipboard snowflake.
If you are American, I hope you find yourself surrounded by those you love today. Enjoy the turkey and all of the trimmings!
Thanks for stopping by. I'm so thankful that you do. Your comments put a smile on my face! Have a wonderful day!
