Give Thanks

 It's already November and our thoughts turn to Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving meals, holiday shopping and time with family.  Yes, we have a lot to be thankful for and that is my challenge for this week.  Just make a Thank you card or project.  

You can really go with this one.  Use any color or theme, but it must convey thanks.  

Note: closing time for entries is Noon EST on Nov. 10, 2105

                              Our sponsor this week is Gina K Designs.

A free community featuring card making, stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters featuring stamps by Gina K. Designs.Be sure to check out StampTV for a ton of great videos and techniques. They also have weekly challenges. Shop Gina K Designs
The prize is a great grab bag of Gina K. goodies. 
Here is my example.:
I went back to a stamp set that I have had and used many times, as I love the red poppy.  Red, Black and White is very striking.  The stamp is Hugs and Prayers and Embossing folder used, is called Wicker Weave by Cuttlebug.
The poppy is colored with Copic markers and then I added Glossy Accents.  The sentiment is a die cut from Simon Says Stamps adhered to a scalloped oval.  The little heart also has glossy accents.  I used circle dies for the frame around the poppies.
