A Bouquet of Thanks

Hi, everyone!

Isn't this weather crazy for mid-November?! Monday was snowy and yesterday was bitter cold. Today seems pretty good -- even though the high is about 15 degrees below the normal high for this day. Crazy....

Today's card is a thank you card that I am making for that upcoming craft show that seems a perfect fit for the current Cards In Envy, Shopping Our Stash, and Word Art Wednesday Thankful themes. I made a similar card this summer and loved it so much that I decided to reprise it for the upcoming craft show.  :)

I absolutely adore this stamp set... and these yummy colors. I used the first/second/third generation stamping technique for these lovely flowers... including the flowers on the inside.

I've found that the customers at the craft show appreciate general sentiment and Christmas cards. So, in addition to several holiday cards, I will have a variety of thank you and birthday cards.

Parting Thoughts

November Challenge

This Friday is the deadline for entering our November Words 2 Scrap By challenge. This month's words Kindness and Gratitude are inspired by an Emerson quote. Hope you will have a chance to play along.

Have a great rest of the week. Thanks for stopping and happy scrapping.
