Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day with family and friends.  Be sure to take time to say what you are thankful for and to tell the ones you are with how much you love them.

Today's card is one I've entered in two challenges -Freshly Made Sketches and Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I will post both inspiration photos and links below.

You've seen me use the Spellbinders circles and pinked circles before.  I love how when you nest the pinked circles, you get a super fun design.

The one die I haven't shown to you before is from Memory Box .  That delicate wooded branch is a made with a die.  Isn't that awesome?  It is so tiny and fine, but it cuts perfectly.

The sentiment is from Joy's Life Stamps.  Be sure to check out her sentiment line.  It is just plain fantastic.

I hope you like this little winter wonderland card.  I can't wait to see what you come up with after you check out the two challenge blogs I've listed below.

Well, I have pumpkin muffins in the oven and it smells like Thanksgiving here!  I won't be shopping on black Friday, so I'll have plenty of time to come back and show you a brand new project.

See you then.


I created this while on the Joy's Life Design Team
