Bloggers Challenge # 74: Happy Thanksgiving



TGIF......I couldn't be happier that it's friday. I worked a ton of hours this week, had to do a oral presentation in one of my classes, Had a serious chemistry week, and ran the kids all over creation. This will be my first weekend off (I don't have to work and have no commitments)in 5 weeks. So, when I say TGIF, I seriosly mean it.
Friday always means Bloggers Challenge, and this weeks challenge was to make some thing "Thankful", whether it be a card or a project. I decide to go with a card, and this way I can mail it to my husbands Grandmother (one more thing done).
I am not sure how I feel about this card. I don;t love it. I guess I think it's just okay. One day at A.C. moore I found the cornacopia stamp, and decided to use my 50% off coupon on it, but when the cashier ran it up, it was only $1.00. Can you believe it? Of course I had to buy what they had left. I couldn't leave that stamp on the self for $1.00 (even know I just bought one for myself). So they only had one left, and I bought it. Good deal!!!!
I hope you all have a great weekend. If you have time check out what the rest of the ladies at the bloggers challenge group made. I know I can;t wait to see what they did. Happy Friday!

Supplies:
stamps: unknown cornacopia, CTMH saying
paper: karen foster, su cardstock
ink: stazon, gamasol, SU cranberry
misc: ribbon

I love any cornicopia image for Thanksgiving...it really exemplifies the whole meaning of the blessings of a bountiful harvest, whether with food, or just a life of bountiful blessings. :)

Your card is wonderful, and while you aren't sure you love it, I do!

Have a great weekend, and a very happy Thanksgiving next week!

Kristen, this came out gorgeous! I picked up this stamp last night (thank you!) and was going to give it a go....but I took another look at it and was too intimidated by all that little coloring! Love that paper too. :)

What's not to love about this card. The image is beautiful (I think it's a PSX image) and you did a fantastic job coloring it. I love the DP you used and all the warm colors.
