LSC195, WT193 and SDDC2 Happy Thanksgiving


Happy TGIF!!! Hope you have great plans for the weekend???

My hubby is taking me out for a movie and dinner - oh yeahhh - looking forward to it!!!

We have some sweet friends that are willing to watch our three diva's.....they just love our girls to death!!! It's so cute - they cook for them and really make a big deal when the girls come over!!! Of course our girls love that too - LOL!!!

Anyway - we have some good challenges going on this week over on SCS. I missed the WT193 - adding Pearls yesterday and then I did a bit of blog hopping last night and saw this fun challenge over on the Stamper's Dream blog - SDDC2 - to create a *Fall* card with a view. So I tried to combine all of those in one LSC195 card....

I used the super fun *A Tree for All Seasons* (sorry I thought it was retired, but it's still on the Dormant List). I inked it in Timber Brown Stazon. Then I colored it with a Blender Pen using - Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip and Old Olive Ink. My card measures 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".
The image itself was stamped on a 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" Very Vanilla CS. Next I used Chocolate Chip CS and started creating a hole with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch. Then I trimmed around it so I would have a 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" Square!!! Next I pierced around the CC CS. Before I layered it all together and added the Pumpkin Pie CS - I used Stampin Dimensional to raise each panel up. At the end I added the Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon and the Gold Pearls (Michael's).

The sentiment is from the *Holidays & Wishes* Set and I also inked it in Timber Brown Stazon!!!

Have you seen my *Guessing Game* yet??? Since we are going out tonight.... I have to postpone the drawing of the Winner to tomorrow morning 10:oo am!!! Thanks for playing along - I have to giggle at all the answers - he,he,he!!!

I just love your work! I read your blog frequently but don't comment all the time (I wouldn't want to be viewed as a stalker). This card is testament to your impeccable style. One little note, A Tree for All Seasons is retired, just on the dormant list. Stampers can still purchase it.

Yikes, I ran for my catalog and thought for a sec that you were right about the set being retired. . . so glad it is just dormant! I love these little trees, just right for so many uses! Like this fabulous card! Thanks for the inspiration.
