SU Stars November Blog Hop

This Month's blog hop is where we give  Gratitude/Thanks . I decided to do a Thanksgiving card. There are so many things that I am grateful for this year. Mostly my family, friends who have given me a lot of support.

If you came from Robin Messenheimers blog then you are in the right place. Wasn't her card just awesome. If not you can start at the beginning at

Here is my card:

Card Stock                           Cajun Craze, Natural Ivory, Crumb Cake
Stamp Set                             French Foliage
Ink                                        Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Soft Suede
Markers                                Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Always Artichoke
Punch                                    Modern Label
Embossing Folder                Argyle
Accessories                         Bronze buttons, Line Thread and Big Shot

Cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock 51/2 x 41/4 for the base, then cut a piece of Cajun Craze 51/4x 4, then cut a piece of Natural Ivory 5 x 37/8.
Then I placed the Natural Ivory in the  Argyle embossing folder and ran thru the Big Shot.
Next I sponged starting with light to dark. More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Chocolate Chip( to give a distress look)
Then I stamped the words down the left side using Chocolate Chip. Then I stamped the leaves random using Soft Suede.
Next I colored the leaves in using my markers with all the colors.
Then I stamped the water mark.
Assembled the pieces and tied Linen thread thru a Bronze button.

Your next stop on the hop will be to visit the very talented Dawn Hoffman and you can see what she has created for you here.

  1. Beautiful card, Jackie....makes me ready for some yummy turkey right now. Your card makes me wish I had taken the time to make a few more cards and send them out. This would be a nice birthday card for some of the men on my list, too....thanks for the inspiration.

  2. This is fantastic. We have a turkey in the oven for this afternoon's festivities and this hop is really helping me get in the mood.
