Here's my take on the 3rd Get Sketchy challenge. It turned out better than I was anticipating and it was the first time I've taken a sewing machine to any project. I'm able to borrow my cousins sewing machine for the next 10 months while she's away at university. Thanks Melissa!!!
I just bought a bunch of SU Kraft CS and I'm becoming addicted to it. Kraft is a nice warm colour when you don't want to use bright bases like white and vanilla. Its country appeal brings forth images of warm fireplaces, hot chocolate, pumpkin pie and the cabin at the lake surrounded by family and friends. With those images in mind, I thought of Thanksgiving and realized that it's not that far away for us up here in Canada and also that we don't give as much attention to Thanksgiving as we probably should.
The inside of the card says "The truest measure of our thanksgiving is how we use the blessings for which we give thanks." It's from the Grateful Greetings stamp set in the new Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini.
For this challenge I used some older supplies and colours I don't think I've used before. The Lucky Star Die-Cut Accents from 4 SU catalogues back. This is the first time I've used them!! And then there is the Baja Breeze from last years In-colours. Amazingly I didn't use much of that colour either even though it is a beautiful blue. Of course I used a little bit of the Chocolate Chip Satin ribbon....I bet I'll cry when I run out of it :(
I hope you enjoyed your visit and have a fabulous week.
