Happy Wednesday!

Donna Phelan here hosting this week's Challenge!  Come join in all of the fun and play along!


This week's Challenge is, 
You may make a Thanksgiving card or a thank you card,
just create a project that represents being thankful to you.
I have made Thank You cards.
Remember if you do not follow the challenge, your entry will not qualify for the prize.  

  This Weeks Sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

All the stamps and Fri-Dies are designed by Michele , and are based on her love for Clean And Simple design, hence the CAS in CAS-ual. However, they will delight any stamper's style! Whether you are a CAS enthusiast or a lover of Utterly Adorable Layers, you will have a blast getting inky with them. 
The stamps are made in the USA of the finest clear photopolymer, and the coordinating line of wafer thin dies are also made in the USA.

  2 Prizes
2 - $15 Gift Certificate each to the STORE
Here is my 1st card
 I chose a very simple design.  I stamped my image from the Casual Comfort stamp set by CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.  I used ink in Pacific Point and stamped it 3 times without re-inking my stamp.  Using a Perfect Pearls Mist in Turquoise I spritzed it all over the card front.  I then cut the Casual Trees die in Deep Blue, Light Blue and Pale Blue card stocks.  I layered the cuts over my stamped images.

Stamping my sentiment from Wonderful Words in Black Licorice ink.
My 2nd card

I created this card in the exact same manner, only using shades of Pink.  I also used Glimmer Mist in Crimson (apparently I had a wee bit of a clog).

I may make a few more of these simple little cards and place them in a box for gift giving.

Thanks so much for popping in!

  1. Great title for your challenge. We all need to be thankful, this is a great reminder.

  2. Challenge indicates create card but I thought other creations were allowed. I entered a Thanksgiving Tag. Please let me know if acceptable for the challenge.

    1. Yes, of course! My mistake in labeling it as such.

    2. TY for response. Back with 2nd entry.
      "Sunshine HoneyBee"

  3. Thank you for the new challenge - the Thank You cards are adorable - have a blessed week

  4. Great challenge, and so appropriate right now. Can't wait to see what everyone creates!! XO~

  5. I have 2 pooh cards up - they are different in cuts - If this is not acceptable, please let me know - I think what you are referring to in the challenge is not to make the same card then have it as one color and then a different color - therefore that would be a variation of the same card - I think I understand but want to make sure my 2 Winnie the pooh cards are OK - thanks! :)

    1. They are both adorable and very much different designs:-) NP

  6. A gorgeous pair of cards Donna, love the backgrounds you created! Thanks for the fun challenge.

  7. Great job DT. Your creations are gorgeous. Love the inspiration. TFS
