Friday Flashback: Harvest of Thanks

Happy Friday, folks!  Hope you had a great Thanksgiving feast yesterday.  It ain't over here...we're having ham (that we didn't take over last night) and lots and lots and lots of leftover desserts.  I really should get some mashed potatoes here too.  But anyway!  Since I'm not quite done with Thanksgiving yet, today's Friday Flashback stamp set is Harvest of Thanks!

Aaaand this is the only card I'd ever made with it prior to today.  Sometimes that happens.

Also features Teeny Tiny Wishes

Inside of the card...and next up is today's new creation:

I decided to make a thank you card for the hubs' cousins who had us over yesterday for Thanksgiving (Tara and I have the same problem of going overboard for Thanksgiving food, so even though there were 13 of us there was SO. MUCH. left over!)  Since I was pulling out a retired stamp set, I grabbed the also-retired Festival of Prints stack for my background panels.

There's the inside of the card with another Harvest of Thanks stamp inside.  I used this week's Retro Rubber Challenge sketch:

ETA:  Forgot to say this stamp set is three years old :)

And here's the latest Create with Connie and Mary color challenge:

I added Early Espresso to "ground" the other colors since they're kinda more mid-toned, plus I think a dark card base is richer looking.  It was lovely to spend some time in my craft cave today after the last few days of baking...though I will be making an apple pie this afternoon.  Think I might finish up a scrapbook layout first :)  Have a great holiday weekend, y'all!

Supplies, last card only:
Stamps:  Harvest of Thanks
Ink:  Delightful Dijon, Cherry Cobbler
Paper:  Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Festival of Prints DSP
Accessories:  Apothecary Accents Framelits, Dimensionals

Christy Lynn, let me start by telling you how much you have been missed in our gallery! I am so glad to see you sharing one of the older SU sets, especially since I still have this one. Using the Espresso does give a richness to the card. Also loving the designer prints. Thanks so much for playing along with Retro Rubber this week! Hope to see you again very soon!!

So happy to see you back in the gallery, Christy! Your card is great!! I am hoping you can add how long you have had the stamp set (or its age) so we can consider you for our Top Picks. Sounds like your Thanksgiving was indeed festive!! Thank again for joining us again and hope you will play with us again soon!

Hi Christy! I am also very happy to see you back in the gallery. My first thought when I saw your post was - I have missed your Friday flashbacks! (I don't get around blog land much anymore due to my schedule). Your card is really quite fabulous - i love these colors together and your DSP is really perfectly paired! Love the stamp set that you used. I don't think I have this stamp set and I am the poorer for it! Thank you for editing your post to include the age of your stamp. It is most appreciated! Thank you again for sharing this delightful card with us - thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber!
