Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends and bloggers! This week's challenge at Totally Stampalicious is to create a Thanksgiving or Thank You card. I used the adorable Chester Platypus stamp from the Sylvia Zet line at Totally Stampalicious for my image. The sentiment is a digital stamp. Isn't that DP gorgeous? I fell in love with it and just had to have it. It goes perfectly with the Cajun Craze SU cardstock too!
I made the scalloped square frame using my Stampin Up punches. It took me a good while (and some math) to figure out the right measurements to make that frame. In case you have those punches and would like the measurements...I cut a square at 3 and 6/16 on my Fisker's Trimmer. I punched all 4 corners with the corner punch and then went back with my edge punch and lined up the scallops from the corner with the scallops on the punch. The brown scallop edge was part of the DP I used. It came with four scalloped edges. I just trimmed it to fit the DP square.
What am I Thankful for? I am Thankful for my Mom. She's recovering from surgery in Arizona while I'm at home in Michigan - missing her tremendously. I'm thankful that her surgery went well and that I was able to be there with her for a few days last week. This recovery is not easy or quick but she's determined to work hard and get better. She's been constantly on my mind and in my prayers.
Thanks for checking out my Thanksgiving card today! I hope you get a chance to play along in our challenge this week!
