First, I would like to say that I pray each of you have a blessed and joyous Thanksgiving today!

this card is "PERFECTION" thank you

Sandy (Cheesy) said...

Funny how someone puts things together that another person (me) wouldn't have thought to use together. The woodgrain folder is a favorite of mine, but have a hard time using. I love it here. And I am starting to like bakers twine. Beautiful card.

Doris said...

The twine, the texture and the shading around the edges really make this card pop! I, too, am thankful for all the blessings we have in Christ.

melv said...

The shading is wonderful. So many ways to use one stamp. LOVE IT!

Very beautiful card Patter. Blessing.

Hi Patter~

I pray you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day, although I know that every day is a day of giving Thanks. I love how that Sizzix embossing folder worked on your card. It looks just like wood. And, Patter you can work wonders with the twine you have! As for the cornucopia-it is colored amazingly with Distress Inks. I would love to see a tutorial on that, Patter! It is exceptional, really! Enjoy your weekend.

He IS Able!
