Thanks a Bunch!!

Well it is very late this Tuesday night and I don't mind telling you...the temptures sure have dropped. I am freezing in my craft room right now. Tonight was about making some cards ahead of time and well I managed to get one done and then have some fun making one for some challenges.

So challenge hopping I went for Monday and Tuesday and low and behold I found the perfect theme for a card at Papertake Weekly Challenge: BE THANKFUL! Phindy's Place Challenge is also GIVE THANKS. This challenge blog is new to me and I want to thank Anne for introducing it to me. I look so forward to playing more in the new year. After chrismtas and spending time with family and friends who isn't thankful.

Now I had a theme, colors were needed and well I had seen Scrapmaster's Paradise yesterday and just loved them. Alarm bells were going off with these fabby colors.

Bang boom bam...now all I needed was sketch and I found an awesome one at Tuesday Morning Sketches by Melissa Craig.

I was set to go with colors, sketch and a theme *whoot, whoot*. Now on Melissa sketch there is a curved kind of line and well not having anything to do it for me, I broke out my scissors and attempted to cut it. Now don't laugh, it was really the best I could do. Also it was so much fun to use one of my new embossing folders. My card really isn't so huge in person, it is a normal size card...LOL...LOL.

Recipe: Stamp: A Little Somethin (SU); Paper: Always Artichoke; river rock, Soft Suede and whisper white; Ink: soft suede; Accesories: 1 3/4 in circle punch, large spellbinder, dauber, pop up's, paper piercer, Swiss dots and Fleur De Lis Cuttlebug embossing folders and scissors.

Well after my fun night of creating and my DH helping me find some new and cool ways to use my computer I am ready for bed. We are trying to find new ways to load pictures to my computer since mine won't let me put any on through my SD card...it has made me just a little tired.

Thanks so much for stopping bye. Have a wonderful day if you are earlier and night if you are going to bed. Keep smiling :)
