So Blessed, So Thankful

Good morning.  I hope your weekend is off to a great start.  Today I'm sharing three Thanksgiving cards that I will be sending to the Cards for Soldiers project.  I have made multiples of each card, leaving the insides blank so that personal messages can be written.
The sentiment is heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The Core-dinations paper is dry embossed with the Cuttlebug Pumpkin Harvest folder and then sanded.

This sketch is one of the Raq's Card Challenge sketches for this week.  I thought the bottom was too plain so I stamped it repeatedly with a maple leaf stamp using Momento Dew Drop Dye ink in Tangelo.

I scraplifted this idea from Diane at Capadia Designs using a different flower cut and adding a bow.  I used the Gypsy to size the flower (image, shadow background, and shadow from Home Decor).  A little inking and some Stickles finished the card.  I did add a cream insert since I chose the dark card base.

Wow!  I'm getting close to 50 followers.  I think reaching 50 would be cause for celebration and offering some blog candy.  What do you think?

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
