Count Your Blessings - DS73



Since it's already been Thursday for two days this week, how can it really be Thursday again today? Ever have weeks like that? Must be the Columbus Day holiday on Monday that's got me confuzzled. The upside to having a week of Thursdays is that my Deconstructed Sketch sample was done for one of those other Thursdays, i.e. early - woohoo! 

So here's the awesome sketch this week, designed by Sheri Gilson:



I took some liberties, a few more than I would have liked, but I think you'll still see the sketch in there. The maple leaf is a Spellbinders die-cut, the blue fringe trim and the velvet maple leaf trim are from my stash (maybe Making Memories?). The grass and the striped scallop were done with CutUps dies from The Cat's Pajamas (Grass and Big Scallop). The bear image is from A Beary Good Year by TCP. And the papers, including the word banner strip and the little "count your blessings" sentiment, are from the Simple Stories Harvest Lane 6x6 pad.

Take a peek at what the rest of the Deconstructed Sketch girls have come up with:

  • Amber Hight
  • Amy Sheffer
  • Arielle Gordon
  • Cresta Woodruff, Guest Designer
  • Donna Wardle
  • Jen Shults
  • Kadie Ensley
  • Lori Boyd
  • Sheri Gilson
  • Tracey Pickersgill


  • My card doubles as my sample for this week's TCP Tuesday Challenge (#231).



     Jen del Muro is our hostess, and has put together this inspiration board:


    I was inspired by the overall Fall theme and warm earth tones. So cozy!
