Simply Create Too Challenge no. 50...Give Thanks

You Betcha I'm giving thanks. Decided to start a 30 day gratitude journal on the 20th of this month.
right on my IPhone...so I have absolutely no excuse not to do it.

So, over at Simply Create Too we are doing a popular challenge at this time of the year.

I used the trendy adhesive tape technique...the one where you put your tape on an ink pad of your choice and then once it's got some dye ink on it yout lay it on a mat size piece of cs in whatever direction you want, give it a light press with your thumb and pull it up. Your left with a swatch of color. Repeat or not. Then proceed with the design of your card. Worked great with some fall colors and Spellbinders' fall foliage die cut leaves which I made using the same technique. The sentiment is from a line called My Sentiments I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I really like the two fonts. Stamped it in craft white onto SU chocolate chip cs, then SU avocado mat.

Join us it's mid-post time, so you still can.

Well, moving on with my day. We're having the most delightful weather here in AZ. I wish it were everywhere and I am sad for the areas of our country where they do not have the weather to be thankful for. I pray that they can find other things to be thankful for.

I love the colors! The leaves are fabulous and the technique you described gives a wonderful effect. I hadn't heard of that one. Very nice, Erica!
