Retired me is trying to be even more frugal than pre-retired me. So, it was a bonanza day at Big Lots and the supermarket when I came across a 7-drawer Sterilite organizer and clearance STRAWBERRY yogurt. If only Big Lots would start carrying Stampin' Up!, Paper Smooches, Tim Holtz, Really Reasonable Ribbon, Simon Says, Winnie and Walter....
Today's card was inspired by the current Shopping Our Stash challenge to create a project with at least one leaf and the current Wednesday Simon Says Stamp Thinking of You challenges. It is also loosely based on this week's Mojo Monday sketch. Think this would make a great Thanksgiving card for my brother's family. :)
I'm really pleased with the way this card turned out. Love the texture and dimension. And it only took two tries to get that sentiment looking crisp and sharp! :)
Nov. 10 Update: Since hearing from Karen of the challenge blog Word Art Wednesday, I decided to pay her site a visit. For those who do not know, this is a weekly challenge blog focusing on uplifting messages including, but not limited to, scripture verses. So, I'm going to link up this card for this week's Word Art Wednesday thankful challenge.
Really looking forward to tomorrow. My father-in-law is celebrating his 91st birthday. We're not doing the fancy dinner like last year. Instead, hubby and I are doing lunch with our two dads. But, it should be a red-letter day nonetheless. :)
Hubby's dad is a World War II vet that flew bombing missions over Germany. The photo below is from the family collage that hangs in our entryway.
Nov. 1 - Nov. 21
Have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
