Give Thanks

Today is a new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters
and is being hosted by our lovely 'sistah'  Vickie
and she has chosen the theme of 
'Give Thanks'.

One of the things I love about being on 'this team'
is we can use anything/any product we want
which gives me plenty of opportunity to use my
very neglected stamps!

I love using up scrap and even have a Pinterest board
just of cards with scraps....
so we can say this card was 'Pinterest' inspired!

When I make a card, I usually have a small strip of paper left
and I just bag them all up for this very purpose.
This is where those 6 scraps you see came from
making a pretty 'scrappy' background!

I layered 2 of the Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Rectangles,
stamping on the top one.
The stamp set I used is a very  old one from SU 'Falling Leaves'.
I stamped the leaves and sentiment with
SU So Saffron~Dusty Durango~Old Olive.

So head on over to The Sisterhood and see what fabulous creations
my 'sistah's have made.
Join in with us!!!

I agree - I love it when we can use any of our supplies too. That's one of the things I love about Double D. Great use of scraps here, I think I might have to pin for future reference. Love your colors too....a happy card. Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Very sweet card! I think I remember that SU stamp and such a clever way to use scraps. If you feel like it, this card certainly qualifies for the Retro Rubber challenge that just started. I am thankful for all my new "sistahs" this year! Happy Thanksgiving!!

You always do such a nice job of matching up all your scraps. These colors and patterns are so fun together! Love the patterned stamps, too. ps: Glad to hear you're enjoying Mack. Your heart is full again.
