Thankful for You

November 20, 2012

Happy Tuesday evening, everyone!  I hope that you've had a good day so far.  We did a little bit of shopping today...stocking up on hand wash from Bath & Body Works, and getting the last few items needed for Thanksgiving.  Then we went to the discount matinee of Skyfall at the movie theater, and it was really great!  My new boots from Target were waiting on my doorstep when we got home...and they are SO cute!  Last week Target did an online deal of buy one pair, get one 50% off, plus free shipping on an order over $ I got a GREAT deal on them.  Love that!!  Plus- they were boots that aren't at my local even better!

I have a love themed Thanksgiving card to share with you today that is chalk full of Prima goodies!!  I used a number of different collections & flower types to create my card, and no stamping on this one!  The sentiment was created using Prima alphabet stickers & vintage trinkets!  Here is what I created!
1. Make A2 card from brown cardstock.
2. Cut yellow floral paper slightly smaller, and adhere to the front.
3. Cut a piece of floral trim, and adhere to the left side.
4. Layer two fabric flowers, two paper flowers & a domino trinket to the top half of the card.
5. Accent the middle of the felt flower with a jewel.
6. Cut out the journal card, then add the sentiment to it using alphabet stickers & a bulb accent.
7. Add three jewels to the card, then adhere to the bottom of the card using foam adhesive.
8. Cover the left side of the sentiment card with two more flowers to finish.

As you can tell, I love to use lots of different Prima flowers on my cards together.  So, I typically go through all of my flowers and grab the colors that my card is centered around.  Then I just start grabbing flowers, layering and moving them around the front of my card until it looks how I want it to!  It's not a tricky process by any means, and it is SO fun to be surrounded in all that flowery goodness!  Tee hee!

I don't have any Bible study notes prepared for today, but I will hopefully have some for tomorrow (as long as I have a card ready....ha!)  I hope that you have a great rest of your evening!

Until later,
