Happy Thanksgiving

I am truly grateful for so much in my life – my family, my friends, our health and all that I have.

William Arthur Ward said “feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it” or in my case like making a card and not sending it.  So go make a card and send it to someone to show your gratitude for having them in your life.  They will love it and know that you are grateful for them.

May you always have someone and something to be grateful for.  Just don’t forget to express it once in a while.

Happy Thanksgiving!

October Club Meeting

We had another great time at our October Club meeting.  We welcomed back Ann from her summer hiatus on the river.  The first card we made used a lot of items from the Holiday Catalog.  The stamp set is called Friendship Preserves.  We first stamped the Thanks a Bunch stamp from this set in Cherry Cobbler and then cut it out using the new Window Framelits.  We then took the larger sized Window Framelits and cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  We then used the new Paper Piercing template also in the Holiday Catalog.  We then embossed a piece of the new Core’dinations card stock in Cherry Cobbler with a folder in the Delicate Designs set and lightly sanded it.  I love the look of this new paper.  It adds a lot of dimension to the projects.  We finished off the card using Seam Binding ribbon in Crumb Cake.  I love this ribbon because it is so soft and easy to use..  It comes in a bunch of different colors.  The ribbon is on page 172 of the main catalog.

 

The next card we made was for Thanksgiving using an older set called Day of Gratitude.  It has some beautiful stamps in that set, including a leaf, acorn and a larger background stamp.  The Designer Series Paper we used is called Comfort Cafe and is one of my favorite papers for fall.  The colors used are Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze and Soft Suede.

Thanksgiving Napkin Rings

You can make these cute napkins rings with the Simply Scoring Score Board from Stampin Up!  I used Spice Cake Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Mini, the Scallop Circle Punch, a Sizzlets Die called Buttons #5 and our white Baker’s Twine.  It is a great way to dress up your Thanksgiving table!
