Crafty Creations Thanks Challenge


I am back with the new challenge over at Crafty Creations Challenges. This week the theme is Thanks!
Very fitting for this time of year here in the U.S. as Thanksgiving is upon us.

We are sponsored this week by Whiff of Joy Stamps. With a lovely stamp up for grabs.  I used one of many from their vast collection.  See above image.
 This is the actual finished project (above).  It is a thank you Christmas card from one of the many people we thank over the holidays.  I used one of the tabbed inserts from CTMH's Three Ring Binder My Creations Album.  (Can't tell you if they actually still make these as I have a few stockpiled.)  My youngest made a Monkey book for school and we made our own pages so I have all the tabbed ones left and put it to good use.
 I used the Laughing Lola paper pack as well as a scrap of snowflakes from there new winter kit as well.  Below is my try at a fun sentiment, don't know if it looks how I envisioned, but it looks cooler in person.  the close-up below is better than the other pics, so hopefully it gives you an idea.  I heat embossed the "Heartfelt Thank" in Pansy Purple to make it pop from the under-toned sentiment "you warm my heart".  I think I should have gone with a second generation stamp on the under-toned sentiment, but oh well.

 Last is the pulled out insert holding the gift card.  It will allow for a From: on the blank green.
Hope to see you at CCC this week!  Happy Thanksgiving!

Great card. I like the colours...not the traditional for winter or Christmas card.
