Let Us be Thankful


Happy Monday, everyone; I hope you are enjoying your day.  This week Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #60 -- to create a thank you card.  My card today combines two different Doodle Pantry sets -- Ginkgo Leaves and a sentiment from the Let Us Be Thankful set.  The Ginkgo Leaves set is a pre-release and can be yours for free (before the release) if you participate in the Clearly Delightful Blog Challenge #10.  (For details, see my post  below dated October 5.)  I should also mention that the Ginkgo Leaves set will be available for purchase in the Doodle Pantry store on Oct. 20.

This is my first try at making my own crinkle ribbon.  It's fun to do, but messy... I definitely recommend wearing rubber gloves if you give this technique a try.  

My card incorporates the following challenges:
Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #60:   Create a thank you card.
Splitcoaststampers CAS88 :  Crinkle -- I used crinkle ribbon.
Create 4 Fun Challenge  - Week 41:  Use a digital stamp -- I used a digital image as well as a digital sentiment.
Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #41 : Celebrate the colors of Fall.

Thanks for stopping by!
Supplies:  Digital Stamps -- Doodle Pantry Ginkgo Leaves and Let Us Be Thankful; Paper - PTI fresh fruits DSP and vintage cream, SU! more mustard; ink - computer, Copics for coloring; Accessories - crinkle ribbon made with MS seam binding and reinkers, Spellbinder deckle-edge die, flower from my stash.
