Give Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving! I loved the card Dawn Olchefske did with the Autumn Meadows DSP and had to try it. I think she called it the Herringbone technique. It looks like inlaid wood almost - which I love. It's easy - no real measurements, although my strips are somewhere around 1/4". Lay down one strip diagonally and then make "v"'s with the others. So, this is my Thanksgiving card to share. Thank you to all that visit my blog, stamp with me, order with me and are my friends. I'm very grateful.

This would be a great teacher, neighbor, friend, etc. gift. It's a Hot Cocoa Gift pack made with Soft Suede and Christmas Cocoa DSP, and of course, Dasher. We'll be making these at my Dec. Stamp Camp. It's also my Late Night Stampers challenge #45 submisson. Love handmade gifts! The pockets could also hold small gifts or whatever you'd like. Makes a nice presentation.

Coach's cards

Things have been so busy around here lately, I will be glad to hand in these cards. It means the end of practices and games for a while. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the kids' sports, but a break from all the running around will be nice. So here's what I came up with for the soccer coaches. Our colors were green and black and the team name was the Crocodiles. The croc is embossed in black on Glorious Green. The letters are die cut from Billboard Alpha. And the soccer ball was made from cutting 6 black pentagons adhered to a white circle and trimming the hanging parts. I drew a line between the points with the thin side of my black marker. Inside will hold a gift card with the ultra fun Look Here pop-up die. Have a great weekend!
