GCD Studios theme: Time to Give Thanks

Hello all!
This is a post I created for GCD Studios and decided to share it here, too.

Have you thanked the people in your life who matter lately?

Well, Fall and Thanksgiving always puts me in the mood to say thanks to those who have been there for me through thick and thin. I’d be lost without those special folks.

So I decided that the best way to show them that I appreciate them was to make a few special thank you cards.

To get started, I turned this photo for some color inspiration.

I have to admit that green and blue aren’t colors I normally associate with Fall and Thanksgiving, but I felt they would work great for this project.

The first card I made was this Grateful card.

I used papers from GCD Studios’ Soul Food, Great Outdoors and Material Girls collections. I cut them in small pieces to try to mimic the look of the quilt.

I also wanted to give the card a little texture so I distressed the chipboard letters with my scissors.

The second card I made was this Thankful 4 U card.

I used the same patterned papers for this card as the last. But I also added a piece from Animal Crackers for Boys collection.
