My Second Week Guest Designing at SSS

Hi everyone! 

It's time to share another card for my guest design spot over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog! Before I do that, I'd like to thank all of you for stopping by my blog last week. I was overwhelmed by the amount of comments I received and really appreciate all your support and kindness! It means so much to me! :)

This week's challenge is Thanksgiving/Thank you. The only Thanksgiving image I have is of a cutesy pilgrim couple, and I am not very comfortable creating "cutesy cards," so I went with the thank you theme.


The image I used is from Hero Arts and it's one of my faves. It's called, Three Sunflowers. As you can see, I only added two of them to my card, after stamping coloring and cutting them out. 

Some of you know that I manage a floral department in a grocery store, and during this year's fall season, we received some of the most amazing sunflowers! They were yellow and red striped and so gorgeous! I wish I would have thought to take a photo for you! That's why I colored my sunflowers with bits of red.

The piece of burlap behind my die-cut, scalloped oval is from Maya Road. I also embossed the yellow panel with a Cuttlebug embossing folder called, Leafy Branch and the sentiment is from Hero Arts' Thank You Messages.

I really hope you'll join me and play along with the challenge this week! As always, the prize is a $50.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store!

You have until Wednesday, November 21st, 8am Ohio time, 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your week! :)
