Happy Thanksgiving!

Warm Thanksgiving wishes to all my US friends from a very chilly Oregon! So grateful we don't have freezing rain and no snow or crowds to deal with since we're staying home.  Not a lot of choice since I worked yesterday & will again tomorrow. It's a perfect day to show this card I made & mailed as I am so thankful for all of you. I love Jennifer McGuire's faux textured metal paper--gorgeous shimmer in person & simple to do. The die cut is Impression Obsession & the embossing folder is Cuttlebug Anna Griffin.  So lucky I won the Dew Drops at The Playground & I'll enter my card there as well as Dies R Us & SSS Monday.  Edited to add: Also entering SSS Wed.

Got a happy surprise this week when I received a copy of Take Ten because they published my card! Thanks, Rosemary, for always encouraging me to submit.  If you check out the issue you'll see Rosemary's beautiful work & here's my card using Brilliance inks, PTI stamps, MFT stencil, Sizzix die & Cuttlebug Anna Griffin embossing folder.
One more thing--I received this stamp set as part of a prize & I'd like to send it to someone who can use it.  I'll pay the postage.  Just use Contact Me in the right side bar to let me know you're interested.  I'm behind on my blog reading, but I'll catch up as soon as I can.  Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy day to visit my blog.

  14. I'm so excited for you being in Take Ten! I see why they chose your card, it is just great. I love the combination of black and grey with the touch of shiny silver. I love that first card too. It is one of my favorites from Jennifer and yours is just gorgeous. We had the most wonderful temps for yesterday, in the 60's. Today tho, we are going to have rain.
