Addicted to Stamps and More! CAS #4 {Happy Thanksgiving}

Hello friends - hope all is well in your world! The challenge this week at Addicted to Stamps and More! is the ever popular Clean and Simple (CAS #4). I made a Thanksgiving card in honor of one of my favorite days of the year (my first favorite being my own birthday - LOL). Why is it one of my favorites? I LOVE the fellowship of family and friends, the reminder of all our blessings and of course... the food! Our family has a couple favorite foods that we make each year, but this year I'm going to start a new tradition also called the "Thanksgiving jar". I'm going to decorate a large Mason jar and ask each person to jot down something they are thankful for. Then right after we eat I'm going to read off all the responses. Do you have a favorite food at Thanksgiving or a favorite tradition around Thanksgiving? I'd love to hear about it if you do.

I like to combine challenges whenever I can - it helps me be even more creative. I chose the colors for my card based on the color challenge going on over at 'ABC' Challenges (where I'm a DT member too). The layout for me card comes from a friend name Cindi who heads up a local card exchange group that I participate in as well.

I hope that you will decide to join us this week at Addicted to Stamps and More! I can't wait to see your CAS cards. The DT at ATS&M has done a fabulous job creating some beautiful CAS cards for your inspiration - please pop in and visit them as well. Til next time - Hugs and Happy Crafting!!

Supplies (all Stampin Up!): Cardstock - Chocolate chip and Whisper White. DSP - Patterns Designers Series paper stack in Bright collection (pumpkin pie).  Stamps - Full of Blessings (available in the holiday mini) - colored with pumpkin pie, choc chip and old olive inks and a blender pen.

  3. This card is a beauty, Danielle! The colors are so rich and I like the layout. It was fun to read about your thanksgiving-plans -the jar sounds great! We who don't celebrate thanksgiving in our countries could try it during some nice get-together evening. Take care and have a good rest of the week!
