Thankful to be Crafting again

I hope this finds all of you doing well after a great Holiday.  It was quite relaxing and peaceful here at home.   My dear sweet MIL and SIL took a few of the kids to stay overnight on Wednesday, so it was a bit weird not having them hear in the morning and afternoon yesterday.  When they returned, we had a great dinner and a tranquil evening.  I am so thankful for my wonderful family! 

I didn't get any crafting time in yesterday, but went right back to it the first chance I got today.  I picked a few challenges for inspiration and created a Thank You card because I am still feeling overwhelming gratitude for all of the blessing in our lives.

I started with 8 1/2 x 11 rice colored card stock by Recollections - Spice Market Collection.  Then I picked some appropriate colored scraps from my stash and pieced them together.  The Copper paper  is from K&Company-Embossed Fall, Maroon is from Graphic 45 - Renaissance Faire Collection, and the Turmeric is from K&Company - Pumpkin Pie.  The digital sentiment is by The Cutting Cafe.  I printed it on plain white card stock and then cut it using my Creative Memories Oval cutter.  I inked all the edges with Studio G  antique brown.  I used my ekSuccess edger punch on the copper paper.  I tied some of the lovely 3 Girl JAM Harvest Orange crinkle ribbon to my center oval and placed a few of my I Am Roses paper roses for added charm.

Challenges that inspired me...
The Outlawz - CAS1120 Thank You using Fall Colors
The Scrapbooking Queen - Royal Digi #2 - Thanksgiving/Fall
Simply Sunday with K Andrews - Give Thanks
PDCC - #108- Maroon, Copper, Turmeric

Keep On Crafting
