thankful for....

I first learned about the Sheetload of Cards site at Flossie's blog. Thanks, Flo.

But this is the first time that I've tried one of their sketches. I must confess that I didn't make 10 cards this time. I used some scraps that I've had for my first attempt. This month's sketch can be found here.

As well as providing the sketch for this month's card, the challenge was issued to use some of the $1 stamps we've all bought at the craft stores. This challenge particularly hit home, since I'd JUST bought some new Studio G stamps this week!!

So for this challenge & sketch I used a little stamp from a new Studio G set for the month of November: "I am thankful for U."

Materials: cardstock: Bazzill (brown), unknown source (cream); designer paper: Basic Grey (Mellow); stamp: Studio G; inks: Ranger, distress ink & sepia archival ink; die cut letter: Sizzix; flowers: Prima; brads: Making Memories; adhesives: Xyron, Pioneer mounting tape, Tombow Mono Multi.

This was a fun sketch design to play with and I'm glad to start making cards for the fall. Too often I wait until the last minute to make my cards for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I'm looking forward to all the great sketch designs, which will have my card cupboard filled up well ahead of time.

Thanks for looking.
