Thankful.  Grateful.  Just a couple of words that describe how I feel this Thanksgiving time.


The image was stamped three times, and the little leaves were colored with Copics.


The sentiment was cut out and popped up on foam tape.


With card 2, the image was stamped directly onto the patterned paper.  It was also colored with Copics, die cut and popped up on foam tape.


The white card stock was also die cut with the tree die, cut at the top and bottom of the tree so that the pieces could be separated leaving a small border around the image.  Both of these card stock pieces were also popped up on foam tape.  Love the dimension and depth this gives to the design.


Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!


Both Cards are joining the Simon Says Monday Challenge: “Thanks/Thanksgiving” and Craftyhazelnut’s Patterned Paper November Challenge.

Card 2 is playing in Pixie’s Snippets Playground-Week #204.  My favorite snippet is the little section of picket fence and the sweet snippet of patterned paper with all those darling little houses.

Oh and if you have a minute and want to see a fun and joyful dance, check this out.  My son, Jared, was in India a couple of weeks ago attending the wedding celebration of a good friend.  Jared and his girlfriend, Michelle, participated in the dancing for the bride and groom.  Fun stuff.

Happy Crafting and
Happy Thanksgiving!!

  2. Great card with wonderful papers. Thanks for joining us at CHNS patterned Paper Challenge this month.

  3. Wow Susan – wonderful! I so love the dimension on your snippets card (love the other card you made too). Really clever use of the die there – and the little fence is so cute and just right.

    LOVED the dancing video – that surely must have taken a lot of practice?! They truly got it spot-on.

  4. These are both great cards, love the colors on the leaves in the first and that design on the second is so cool. How fun that dance was your son and his girlfriend did they were very good at being in sync with one another that is so neat 🙂

  5. Oh, my gosh, the video was so fun! I can’t get over how good they were! My friend had a traditional Hindu wedding here in town and it was a such beautiful thing with the ceremony, the dress, the food, all her warm and lovely family. I mustn’t forget to tell you how I love your cards, too! So very creative and colorful. Really cute designs.

  7. Oh, Susan, these are wonderful cards, and I really love this new SU tree and die. The second one is amazing with how you’ve split it and gave it such dimension! Stunning. And oh my, your son and his girlfriend did a beautiful job, and they were amazing and look like they really enjoyed themselves too! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Hugs!

  10. Hello Susan, been a while since I got over for a visit, but just saw your very pretty & cleverly done card highlighted over at the Snippets playground. What a great idea to split the die as you’ve done in this amazing design. It’s just so lovely, and I’m also liking the trio of bright & festive trees very much too. TFS & Hugs. Merry Christmans.

  11. Lovely cards, I love that 2nd card with the “offset” white, just brilliant! Thanks for sharing these with us, hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
