I have been absent from my blog for a while...my husband has had some additional complications with his brain cancer and my spirit has not been in a crafty mood of late but today is Thanksgiving so I made a couple cards for family members.
I don't have a lot of Thanksgiving stamps so I had to use what I had. I also tried to incorporate the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #42 challenge for this week of using sentiments to create a background and stamping them off to give different layers of depth on the card. You can kind of see this in the photo below but I didn't have a lot of "thanksgiving" type sentiments so I used a hat and a leaf stamp with the sentiment stamp that is also on the circle focal point on this card. I couldn't find any thanksgiving stamps in my PTI stuff and I had a limited amount of time so I went with what I did have and used my PTI 2.5 inch limitless layers circles die for the focal point.
I colored the buckles on the hat with a metallic gold pen for a little sparkle on the background.
Thanks for taking a look. Smiles - Jill
