Happy Thanksgiving to all of my US friends and family! I love this day. I'm so blessed and thankful for the many things in my life that make it so rich and full. Spending the day today with my family, eating wonderful foods and laughing and memory making is truly what this holiday is all about. I recently saw this quote on Pinterest and thought it was perfect for today: "Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of Thanksgiving." (WT Purkiser)
I've been having so much fun participating in My Scrapbook Nook's Card Sharks contest. Here are the cards I made for this week's challenges.
This first one uses Webster's Western Romance and Wonderfall papers. I thought it was perfect for today. The challenge was to incorporate nature and woodgrain. I used some Crate Random paper (aqua) that has a woodgrain pattern on it and the bouquet is the nature part.
I wanted some die cut leaves, so I broke out my Cricut and cut them. It's been ages since I used it and I'm so glad I did! I'll be using it more often for sure. I added a berry bouquet, a flower whimsy and a Papertrey stamp.
The next challenge was to use a Bingo card or grid pattern. I decided to make a grid of my own.
I used Crate Peppermint on here. I punched the snowflakes and added lots of little bits and baubles of chipboard.
Finally, my third card is for the 'Royalty Challenge'. We had to use a crown in our design.
I used My My Mind's Eye papers, Tattered Angels chipboard, Prima flower and Melissa Frances brooch gem. I love the colors in this line!
So that's it for today. Off to watch the parade and prep my appetizers for dinner. :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm truly thankful for your visits and comments. Have a blessed Thanksgiving!!
