Happy Thanksgiving!

This year I am so very thankful, truly blessed and daily strive for an attitude of gratefulness.

At church a few weeks ago the pastor started out saying that gratefulness leads to grace.  It started me thinking and pondering on the old thought that it all starts with the heart.  I used to roll my eyes at that phrase.  What absolutely crockery I used to think.  However it really and truly does start with the heart.  When your heart is filled with gratitude it cannot help but offer grace to those around you.  It knows no other way.  
So this Thanksgiving I am praying that we all have a heart that is so full of gratitude grace abounds and overflows.  If we all extend grace towards each other, well, just sit a few minutes and picture that.  I dare you not to have a smile on your face when you do!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

November Club Cards!

Our Cards:

The November class met last week and we made 4 different cards.  I am trying to get better at selecting cards that don't keep us up to midnight.  As you can imagine this is not an easy task.  So many cards so little time!

Here are the four we made.  I am hoping to get some videos up on how I made each one over the next week so stay tuned!

**You will also need a paper trimmer and score board for this project.

2 5x5 squares one of white and another of tip top taupe
1 large sqaure die cut from the pillow box die cut in tip top taupe and another smaller square cut in the whisper white.
Spare piece of white card stock to stamp the cardinal.
Stamp the background onto the center of the taupe square using your versamark ink pad.

Cut the square in half creating two pieces of paper each 2 ½ x 5”
Using the white square stamp the branches using tip top taupe ink three times around square with the “berries” facing the inside of the card.
Using the tangelo twist and hello honey markers color in the berries.
Cut the white square in half creating two pieces 2 ½ x5”.  Dry Fit the sentiment so that you make the cut in the correct place.
Using the spare piece of white paper stamp the inside of the bird using cherry cobbler.  Using tip top taupe stamp the outline of the bird.  The hello honey marker can be used to color in his beack.  Cut the cardinal out.
Stamp the “thinking of you “ using the tip top taupe stamp pad onto the white square that was cut out.  Adhere this to the square tip top taupe and place onto the center of one of the white stamped pieces that measures 2 ½ x 5”.
Make your score lines:
