I decided to enter this week's Whimsical Twist grateful challenge, so I followed this sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap:
I pulled out some brown ribbon (I promise the ribbon really is brown!) from my stash and my Bo Bunny FAVE fall papers--Forever Fall--and created this:
I wanted to finish things off, so I added a sentiment to the inside
and an image to the envelope.
This will be going in the mail on Monday to a former student of mine who is a resident of our local Sheriff's Girl's Ranch. She's had quite a few things happen in her life, so I'm trying to give her some encouragement right now.
The stamps are from the Bountiful Blessings set from There She Goes Clear Stamps, and I used Ranger Archival Ink in coffee. The leaf charms came from my friend Danni in an RAK (Thanks, Danni!), and they fit perfectly on my card! I'll also be entering this in the "Thanksgiving" monthly card challenge at the Yahoo group Scrappin' 'n' Chattin'.
Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to come back on Thanksgiving Day (November 28) and again on Saturday, November 30, as I'm participating in a "12 Days of Christmas" blog hop, and I'll have a different Christmas project (and a giveaway!) to share with you each day. Happy scrapping, everyone!
