Grateful



I have another relatively simple card for today. Gotta love these when you're short on time and/or you need a bunch. The designer paper is from the Offbeat collection by Basic Grey. The pumpkin stamp is from Verve's Tall Oaks set, and the "grateful" sentiment is from Stampin' Up's retired Cute Converse. Coloring is with Prismacolors, Gamsol, and a blending stump.

Not much else to say about the card, but before I go, I'll share what I'm most grateful for at this particular moment: fifteen years of marriage! On this day in 1993, at 6 o'clock in the evening, my husband and I said our "I do's." Happy Anniversary to us!! (This isn't my anniversary card to him, by the way. If you're a Splitcoast Fan Club member, you can see that HERE. It's a fun one!)

Thanks for visiting!



Stamps: Tall Oaks (Verve Stamps), Cute Converse (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: dark brown textured card stock (Bazzill); Ivory card stock (Papertrey); Offbeat dp (Basic Grey); bronze ore metallic card stock (ODBD)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Prismacolors, Gamsol, blending stumps, Offray brown twill, rust brads and burlap string (Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts), die-cut swirl (Sizzix die), dimensionals
