CCM Saturday Blog Hop - Giving Thanks

Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is Thanksgiving and gratitude. Although I count my blessings year-round, this is the time of year I really appreciate my many blessings. A roof over my head, family and friends nearby, good health, and a new puppy that's a sweetheart of a handful.... *wink*

I wanted to keep it fairly simple today, so I chose the Love of Leaves stamp set and Stitched Leaves dies. A quarter sheet of Very Vanilla cardstock was embossed with the Timeworn Type folder, then die cut with a Stitched Rectangle die and the Stitched Leaves outline die.

I heat embossed (gold) the large leaf on another piece of Very Vanilla and trimmed it down to fit behind the die cut layer. The top layer was adhered with dimensionals to the heat embossed layer and then glued to the Soft Suede card base.

I'm so sad to see that the Heartfelt Wishes greeting set is going to retire! I love its large scripty font; it really makes a statement. The greeting was stamped on Very Vanilla with Soft Suede ink, matted on some more Soft Suede cardstock and popped up on dimensionals. (I'm happy to see the Brushed Metallic Dots are carrying over!)

That's my share for today. Click the Next button to jump over to Debbie at Debbie Henderson Designs, or the Back button to see what our new Design Team member, Lori at Loritamarie Crafts has made!
