THANKSgiving Card

I was just sitting in my craft room thinking that I would like to make a Thanksgiving card.  I've always loved the word 'Thanksgiving' because it is a perfect word for the spirit of the season  For some reason the Sizzix die with the pop-up THANKS 'popped' into my head.  I just knew it would make a good base for my card with the addition of the stamped words 'happy' and 'giving'.  The words came from a Hero Arts clear set     (I only inked the part of the phrase that I needed). It was simple work to follow the directions on the dies (you'll need the card base and the insert THANKS die.  Using the die I cut out just the word 'thanks' from green paper and glued it onto the card.  The 12x12 double-sided  printed cardstock and owl sticker I used were from My Little Shoebox.  For the front of the card I added thin washi tapes and skinny colored raffia ribbon (found at the Celebrations store in Mapunapuna) and a lightweight plastic leaf dangle from BFC, (Oh, I put thin pop-dots behind the owl sticker to make it stand out more.)  Well, that's it for today.  I hope you enjoyed your visit and will return often.  Give thanks for your many blessings!
