Welcome to the August 2014 Tour de Freaks! Our theme this month is "Simple & Elegant", meaning something not too difficult, but still stylish. If you started at the beginning and have hopped in order, the you just landed here from the awesome Judy DiScipio's blog. If you started here, just click the link at the bottom of each blog to take the whole tour - there are fifteen of us this month!
In keeping with the theme, I made two simple cards using stamps from the Holiday Catalog that starts August 28th. First up is a pretty Thanksgiving (or even Thank You) card using the For All Things stamp set. I love the watercolor feel of it! I stamped the background behind the leaves in Hello Honey. The leaves were stamped in Baked Brown Sugar and Soft Suede. Then I borrowed a greeting from Truly Grateful because I wanted it to fit on the 1/2" strip of So Saffron.
