Thankful Forest Tree

Are we ready to move on from Halloween?  Last month was filled with posts and excitement with both Halloween cards and projects and anniversary musings.

Now, time to move on to Thanksgiving.  I was born the morning after Thanksgiving.  My mom had goose for the first time that Thanksgiving…and I guess I came out quickly! 

The tree from Forest Friends reminds me of a Door County stencil.  Ah, Door County…one of my family's favorite spots in the entire world.  I created this card using the Finial Press embossing folder:

Tiny Teacup Card

In the new Stampin' Up! catalog are more one-stamp stamp sets!  Tiny Teacup is one of those stamps.  However, I knew I wanted to separate the teacup from the words.  So I made my one-stamp stamp set a two-stamp stamp set!  Thankfully, I have many extra wood blocks.  Here's the first card I made with it:

I used Cajun Craze card stock and  the Sizzix Big Shot Finial Press folder.  I tore the card stock and then rubbed Cajun Craze ink over it.  This gives the embossing more definition.

Hmm…I'm thinking a cup of Chai Tea would be perfect right now!
