CTMH Thanksgiving Card

Today I have a beautiful Thanksgiving Card to share with you!I'm feeling extra Thankful this week as the tiny town I live in came VERY close to this tornado. It ended up missing our town buy about a mile but it did cause some damage to some of the rural homes in the community. But, in only the way a small town can, people have been generously donating everything from clothes, supplies, and their time to help the families affected, so I feel even MORE thankful to be part of this amazing community! Ok, on to the good stuff...

One of the really cool things about the Close To My Heart paper lines is that you can mix and match papers from the different collections pretty easily! For my card I used the Sarita Paper Collection for the background and the red is patterned paper from the ProPlayer Paper Collection. The grey and off white card stock are both from my stash.

The flower image and the sentiment "Give thanks for all you have" both come from the Happy Autumn Stamp Set. I love the fact that the flower comes in 3 parts making it very quick and easy to stamp it in any color combination you choose! The ink colors I used were: Cranberry, Sunset, Olive, and Slate. I also inked all of my edges with the Slate ink as well. Finally I added a little Baker's Twine and some buttons from my stash and in just a few minutes I had a beautiful card!

Now if only I had the energy to whip these up for the entire town..... hopefully I will be getting a little more time to play in my craft room soon... I'm going to need to make some Christmas cards - although at the rate I'm going I may just be making the cards for NEXT year!
