The Sisterhood of Crafters

WOW ... how blessed am I to have all of you wonderful people come visit and comment on my creations!  For THAT ALONE, I am VERY THANKFUL!!

And, that is the theme of today's challenge at  

GIVING THANKS
(open to interpretation)

I went two different ways with my interpretation!

First, of course, is a card to celebrate the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.  I do so much coloring these days with all the digis I work with, that today I decided to 'get inky'.  Here are the items used to create this card:
Paper:  the Paper Studio designer paper, white & green cardstock
Inks:  Tim Holtz 'Brushed Cordoroy' distress ink, Momento 'Bamboo Leaves' ink, Versafine Black
Stamps:  Penny Black (pine branches), Inkadinkado (turkey), Anita's (sentiment)
Accessories:  Michael's gingham ribbon, Prismacolor markers, Whisper's Stroke Markers, sponge applicators

Secondly, is a simple yet beautiful Thank You card which would fit any occasion! This lovely digi image is from one of our very own 'Sistah' Teri at Delicious Doodles.  The embossing folder is Sizzix and the zig-zag stitched ribbon is from JoAnn's.

Other Challenges:
Digital Tuesday - Anything Goes
Scrap-Creations - Sentiment as Main Focus

Thanks so much for stopping by today and please, won't you pop on over to The Sisterhood and join in the fun!  We would love to see what you create!

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs,
Darlene
