Give Thanks

Mornin', y'all.  How's your day going?  Ryan's not up yet so I'm taking advantage of the time to write this blog post.  And take cold medicine.  Hope I don't pass this along to the wee babe.  He had a good time last night playing peekaboo over the coffee table with his dada.  Very cute.

Anyway, even with a cold I managed to make a very quick card yesterday.  Not only is it quick, it's a quadruple challenge card.

So, one stamp, one piece of Color Theory DSP, and a couple of Framelits.  At first I was going to stamp something texture-y on that bottom left corner, but looking at it I thought this card needs ribbon!  So I had to raid my retired ribbon stash (I have a very limited selection of current ribbon and a very large selection of retired ribbon) to find that Chocolate Chip taffeta.  I loved the taffeta ribbon.

Anyway, on to the challenges!  First up is the What Will You Stamp? challenge to use Labels to Love:

I didn't ink it up in time to use the Halloween stamp but I love that this one has stamps for multiple holidays on up to Valentine's Day.  I got the matching punch too, but I picked one of the stamps that doesn't coordinate with that punch ;)

Next up is this week's Freshly Made Sketch:

I made my card the standard A2 size instead of square just because I like A2 better.

Here's this week's Color Throwdown:

I used Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, and Crumb Cake.

Last up is the SUO Challenge to make a project that features thankfulness.  My dad has had some health challenges lately, but he got some good news from the doctor yesterday so we're definitely thankful for that, and this card will be going out to my dad later today.

Have a great day, peeps.

Ink:  Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango
