It's almost Thanksgiving and I have a lot to be thankful for. I have a wonderful family, I've moved back to my home state, and I get to enjoy things like papercrafting while taking care of my sweet rugrat. When I saw the inspiration photo from this week's Lawnscaping challenge and Simon Says Stamp's Thanksgiving/Thank You Challenge, I knew I had to make a 'thank you' card to show my appreciation.
As you can see, apples seem to be the focal point of the inspiration photo. Lawn Fawn does have a darling apple stamp, but alas, it isn't part of my stash. So, I improvised! I took the cute cookies on a plate image from Cozy Christmas, the little leaf from Critters in the Forest, and a fine-tipped black pen to create my own little "bushel" of rosy apples. After coloring and fussy-cutting, I searched for some patterned paper and came across this darling paper from MME. The sentiment is a customer thank you stamp from LF and it pretty much nailed what I wanted to say to all my friends, family, and colleagues who bring me joy each and every day! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
