Thankful

Happy Monday!  I hope that your weekend was all that you wanted it to be.  As for me, our babysitter and I had a great time on Saturday starting her scrapbook, and I finished all of my swaps for this Saturday's Luv 2 Stamp Meeting.  In case you're wondering what this meeting is all about, it's a quarterly meeting that my wonderful director hosts for her downline.  We always have a great time because we recharge our creative batteries with fresh ideas, win amazing prizes and make some awesome make-and-takes!  

I'll share the card I made for the swap on next Monday.  All I'll say is it's a Christmas card, and I really love it!  I only had to make 22 of them, so that wasn't too bad.  Now, let's get to today's cards.

For today's share, I made two Thanksgiving cards.  While my director was away at Stampin' Up!'s Annual Conference, she let me play with some of her goodies in her absence that I have yet to order.  One of the products I couldn't wait to get my hands on are the adorable Expressions Thinlits Dies. They add such a nice touch to cards and scrapbooking pages.




When I was using these dies, I wasn't aware that the trick to making the paper slide out is using two pieces of wax paper on top of the cardstock instead of doing what I had to do, which was carefully remove them with my Paper-Piercing Tool.  So, if you happen to get a close-up of the word "thankful" on either of these cards, you'll give me a pass.  Regardless, I think they turned out great!




I love how these cards turned out and hope that you like them too.  Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time, happy crafting!
