Family Gratitude

Today I am filled with gratitude for my family, friends, and faith.
This sentiment stamp pretty much says it all.
I love these border type stamps in the 

I have been using that sweet floral stamp quite a bit.
These are also nice to stamp along the side of your envelopes to give them a custom look.

Here's another...

Happy, Happy Thanksgiving!

Thankful Heart

I share this card today because I do have a thankful heart!
Today hubby and I will be traveling to Muncie for a pre-Thanksgiving dinner prepared by our daughter and here sweet boyfriend.
We are excited to meet the rest of his family and share a holiday meal with them.
Looking foward to that time!
For this card I used the Pathfinding Paper Packet
and the November SOTM.
Remember, it is only available until November 30th.
It has been one of my favorite Stamp of the Month sets so far.
The sentiment is from another little set called
It has a perfect sentiment stamp for the inside or outside of 
Thanksgiving cards.

Wishing all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Fall Pretties

Here is another card created with the 
I am loving the Glacier color paired with the earth tones.
I used the 
LIfetime of Happiness stamp set again.

Really, when I saw this stamp set at convention I knew I could not live without that sweet bow!

Lifetime of Happiness

I have really had some fun mixing the blue papers of Pathfinding
with Glacier Ink
and the Glacier Fundamentals Cardstock (the background piece).
I used the Lifetime of Happiness stamp set, a new fave in shades of brown and tan.
The tag was created with a piece of Neutral Fundamentals Cardstock.
I have just a few snippets of the Chocolate Striped Grosgrain ribbon that I have been hoarding, lol.

Wishing you lots of happiness this week as we celebrate Thanksgiving.

Kraft-y Love

For this card I was inspired by the photo at
Check it out.

I just love brown paper (Kraft) packages, especially with a red, white and Kraft color combo so I knew I had to play along.
There were so many ways to go with the tag choices
on my Close To My Heart Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.
I decided to go with the snowflake tag.
I layered white and Kraft and used
Ruby Ink.
The sentiment is from this stamp set...

It is tough for me to do CAS, but I was so inspired by the designer example it made this card come together quickly.

Autumn Blues

One last blue card!
I have been sharing cards created with the
This one has a chipboard leaf from the coordinating complements.
The journaling card is actually from a completely different line
Seaside PML cards.
I love to mix and match. 
I stamped the blue flowers with Glacier Ink that was swiped on to my Craft Mat.
That's how I got the soft watercolory look. 
I will be trying that technique a bit more.
I dare say, Autumn has been over here in Indiana for awhile.
We have had inside recess all week due to the wind chills.  
Oh well, at least it is supposed to warm up this weekend.

Here is a look at the stamp set I used to create that border of tiny flowers.

Thanks for visiting!
Have a wonderful weekend.

I guess I went on a bit of a "blue" kick lately.
I love the blue prints in this Pathfinding Paper Packet.
The strip in the background was stamped with this set.

I swiped some Glacier and Olive inks on my All Purpose Craft mat and inked up
the stamp from there.
It gave it a softer look.  
That is also how I made the background for the sentiment panel.
The sentiment is from this set.

I just love this stamp set.
