Giving Thanks For This Sketch
Blogger ate my post scheduled for this morning - bad blogger!!! So, after some typing, here it is a bit later than intended.
As I mentioned yesterday, it didn't take much to twist my rubber arm into making a card using a maple leaf in lieu of the heart on this sketch. Sorry.....just can't put these leaf dies down!
My MME papers came to rescue once again - oh how I love those papers and wish I had the budget to get them all! The only glitch in the card making process was my lack of attention to the orientation of the stripes on the mustard panel before I cut it. Think there were a few Verve Divas sending me subliminal skewed panel messages as the stripes ended up on the diagonal instead of a vertical orientation. After a big "sigh..." I decided to let them bask in all their glory rather than cut another circle. A bit of wood grain embossing in the background finished things off perfectly.
Thanks to everyone for the Thanksgiving well wishes. We had a fabulous weekend, a great meal Sunday night, and are now enjoying all the yummy leftovers along with some turkey soup I made yesterday. Ummmm, ummmm good :)
Have a great day, and as the card says, I'm giving thanks for all of you who come and visit my little part of blogland (((hugs))).
