Grateful Thanks

Another beautiful weekend has come and gone.  We enjoyed spending time at the TBall game and then we were able to just relax and hang out as a family.  With all this nice fall weather I was definately channeling the colors of fall for this weeks Stamping 411 challenge

This weeks card started with the new Autumn Spice DSP and the Day of Gratitude Stamp set.  To create the multi-colored main image I used various Stampin' Write markers and colored directly onto the stamp rubber.  Then once I finished I "huffed" on the rubber to reactivate all the ink and just like that, multi-colors with only one stamp.  I took a Stampin' Sponge and added Cajun Craze ink around the edge of the Very Vanilla paper before matting first with Old Olive and then More Mustard cardstock. 

I added a piece of Early Espresso 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon along the bottom to anchor the card.  The greeting is from the stamp set is is punched out with the Small Oval Punch and then matted on a piece of Cajun Craze punched with the Oval Punch and attached with Dimensionals.  The final touch are two small pearls on the far edges of the larger oval.

  Now this was the sketch layout for the week, really open to all sorts of uses.  I love how this card turned out, nice and warm.
We had one big event this weekend, we officially adopted a new puppy, Mocha.  Here's a picture of Chris, Aidan, and Mocha right after we signed the paperwork.  Mocha's starting to get adjusted to his new home and we love him.
