"There's always something...

...for which to be thankful." - Charles Dickens

Well said, Mr. Dickens.  And, this week, the Card A Day Blog is featuring Thanksgiving as our creative inspiration for you.  My card happens to be a card I made last year (I think) which never made it into my blog.  Of course I had every intention of making a brand new card for you, but time truly got away from me.  I know we all understand how that can happen sometimes.

This card was made entirely from Stampin' Up products in the standard A2 size.  The image piece and insert were cut from Very Vanilla, but I don't remember the names of the other paper colors.  The mat was cut at 5 1/4" x 4" and finished with a decorative corner punch, and the image and it's mat were cut at approximately 3 5/8" x 2 3/8" with the image piece just slightly smaller.  The center image is affixed with foam tape.  Here is the front of the card:

The inside sentiment (our quote from Mr. Dickens) was stamped on the Very Vanilla, cut out with a Spellbinders Deckled Edge Rectangle, inked around the edges and affixed.  The inside image was stamped just for a little extra 'something.'  The first photo came out a bit blurred, but here it is anyway so you can see the spacing.:

Here is a nice clear shot of the inside sentiment:

That's about it for now.  Thanks for coming to visit.  I'll be back soon to show you a few things I've been working on with some Girl Scouts!

Big Hugs,
