Thanksgiving Blessings

I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day holiday. We had a good visit with some of our children and their families so we enjoyed that. We played some fun games too! That is a nice change of pace.

Today I got an order from Gina K. Designs and so I grabbed a few of those stamps and decided to play with them and create a Thanksgiving card. Before we know it that time will be here as well, so I think it best I get busy with those and Halloween cards.


I recently bought a set of Fall colored ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbons and so I chose to use one of each color to create a background. Then I took a leaf image from the Gina K. Designs Skeleton Leaves set and stamped one in each color to sort of match the ribbons. The sentiment is from the Gina K. Designs Autumn Wreath Builder set. All of this was arranged on a piece of Ivory card stock. The card base is black so I stamped the sentiment in black too and added three black sequins. Inside the card I added another Ivory piece of card stock for the sentiment or message I will be adding.

Really a simple design and the fussy cutting of the leaves was not that difficult as it was a fairly simple outline to follow. I hope you liked my quick and easy card I made after lunch. Thanks so much for visiting and I hope your day is going well.

God bless,
Verna

Way to use that ribbon! What a beautiful, colorful, creative card this is. I admire you for putting your new things to use without much delay. It sounds like your holiday weekend was worth all the trouble of getting ready for it. Good to see you today, Verna!

That ribbon is such a pretty background. I like the golden edges of them! Nice backdrop for your leaves, they are really intricate and attractive in the matching ink colors.

Sounds like you had a good Labor Day! We spent it painting but I was glad to have the extra time to work on that project.
