Thankful Somethings Challenge

Happy Friday!

We have a new challenge for you over on STAMP SOMETHING and this one is all about being thankful! With the Thanksgiving holiday right around the corner, we figured this was the perfect challenge theme. So all you need to do is make a project having to do with giving thanks, saying thanks, or even Thanksgiving itself. We realize not everyone celebrates this holiday, so we're keeping the interpretation open to just having to do with THANKS! Have fun with this one. We have some Magnolia images up for grabs as blog candy, be sure to enter by Thursday, November 27th at 7pm EST for your chance.


I don't have any Thanksgiving stamps, so I went with a thank you card. Many of you know this has been a busy and exciting week for me with the launch of Whimsy Stamps, so I have lots to be thankful for! And because it's been a busy week, I haven't had too much time for stamping. So this is a pretty simple card.

I used some Autumn colors and then Pocket Silhouettes to make this card. I started with a base of Cocoa cardstock and stamped it with the Canvas BG from Stampin' Up!. Then I layered on a strip of Pumpkin, Washington Apple DSP, and then the image with Riding Hood Red. The images were stamped with Pumpkin and Saffron ink. The final touch was an elastic cord and button. The sentiment is also from Pocket Silhouettes.

Thanks for stopping by, we hope you'll find time to stamp something with us this week. Be sure to stop by STAMP SOMETHING and check out all the design team samples too! Happy Stamping! :)

Oh, and there's still time to enter into the Whimsy Stamps blog candy....check it out here!
