"Thank You" For A Cause!

Saturday, November 27, 2010

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm still super stuffed from all of the goodies that I ate for the past 2 days! I didn't want to deal with the hassle of Black Friday so I stayed in and had my own crafty day. Besides....I'd rather wait for Cyber Monday when I can shop online and not fight all the madness of the crowds. :)

Here's one of the cards I made today! This one is for the "Thank You" Card Cause that super sweet Julie has going on over at These Are a Few of My Favorite Things. I hope you all join in to help out two wonderful people in need. You can read about it HERE. Julie is also hosting a challenge at Do More With Less. I'm playing along there too. :)

I needed an idea for the layout of this card so I used Laura's cute sketch over at 2 Sketches for You.

And if you like to work with sketches - Sketches in Thyme is doing an "Open Sketch Challenge". Use any card or layout sketch and join in on the fun!

I sure had loads of fun with this MME So Sophie patterned paper. I used it behind the owl, for the scallops, and to spell out the word "Thanks". Multiple uses for patterned paper...Love it!

I had fun mixing old and new supplies. I love this MME Alphabet Soup chipboard. I cleaned my scrap room today and found a huge stack of kraft cardstock and a bucket of shimmery ribbon that was just sitting there collecting dust. I decided to add these to the card as well.
I also wanted to let you know that I started a Facebook account for my crafts and blog. If you are also on FB please leave your info in the comments section. I'd love to check you out. You can find me on FB by clicking HERE!

I hope you all enjoy your weekend!
