Thanksgiving Card

Hi there Friends!  Happy Thursday to all of you!  Do you realize that the holidays are fast approaching.  I've been trying to focus on holiday cards and I'm sort of skipping Halloween.  My daughter has grown and now in college so I really don't have the great need to create treat bags and projects any more.  I could give them out to the neighborhood kids on Halloween but I know very well that kids will tear up the fancy bags and boxes and not even look at them.  What is important to them are the treats and not necessarily the container that holds the treats.  Furthermore, not many people send out Halloween cards so I decided this year, I'll concentrate less on Halloween items and move ahead to adult themed Thanksgiving cards.

 I decided to use the same image as the card I used a few days back.  I water colored a few of them on watercolor paper, sort of assembly style, so don't be surprised to see more cards using the same image.

 I added a satin ribbon, the Prima flowers and a die cut leaves to embellish the card.

I created the sentiment on my computer rather than rubber stamping it.   My rubber stamps are so unorganized right now and for me to look for a sentiment to fit my card only results in my turning my room upside down so I decided to save myself from having to clean up my craft room after I've torn it up,  I thought printing the sentiment was an smarter alternative.  I really do need to re-organize my room again.  Each year I will organize it and towards the end of the year, nothing is where they belong and I spend half my time looking for something.  I need to be smarter and put things back where they belong so I don't have to re-organize my room so often.  Just to let you know, I don't know the brand of the rubber stamp.  I had unmounted the stamp from its wood mount a while ago and I no longer can remember who made it.  The designer paper is by Me & My Big Ideas and the card stock by Stampin Up.

Anyway. . .that's it for today.  I'll work on more Thanksgiving card today and maybe do a Christmas card as well.  Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!

Love the coloring. This is a gorgeous card! I am like you in that I don't put away my material after crafting, and who knows where that embellishment or marker is that I want to use. If you come up with a way to craft and keep organized at the same time, please post. Thank you for sharing.
