A time to be THANKFUL!!!

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?  Me - well, my wonderful family and friends, to have a great job and to be healthy!

I created this card awhile back while scrapping with my wonderful friends.  We usually end up talking more than crafting sometimes, but oh well....I enjoy our time together no matter what.

I had recently purchased this tree stamp I believe from Hobby Lobby.  And I couldn't wait to try it out.  I inked up my stamp with the lightest color first, then added 'blots' of the other colors through out the tree to make it appear as if it were changing colors.  We didn't get much of a fall around here.  The trees turned and then right away the winds blew them off, so we had a VERY short time to enjoy them.

The stamps and punches were some of the goodies we received in our Fiskars class  back at Scrapfest in September.  We used the Cameo punch along with the 4" x 8" Clear Stamps Cameo Ovations.  I just love not having to really think about "Is the stamp going to fit the punch" and vice versa.
