Thanksgiving at Delightful

Good morning everyone, today sees the start of a new challenge at Delightful Challenges and the theme this week is:


I have gone with the Thanks theme with living in the UK.

I thought I would get a head start with my Thank You cards!! I have used the sweet Thanks  for the Gift Set which comes complete with image and sentiment - bargain, available here from Digital Delights. I have coloured him with Copics.  This was the second attempt at colouring him the first went in the bin, the problem was the box I just couldn't get the shading right so in the end I covered it with Mermaid Stickles to hide my dreadful shading!! Thank you Stickles lol. The papers are from Bo Bunny the Alora Collection, I thought that although the image is Christmassy you could still use it for any time of year so that's why I didn't use Christmas papers.  I embossed the cardstock with a Circles embossing folder.  The image has been cut and matted using Spellbinder's Nesties and I used Edgeabilities for the border.  I cut the sentiment out with a Sizzix tag die - had it years and years! The flower is made using Dienamics Rolled Daisy die. The flat back pearl and twine are from my stash.

Our sponsor this week is:

The Robin's Nest - you can visit them here.

Please go over to Delightful Challenges and see what the rest of the girls have done - some fabulous inspiration to be had there! You don't have to use a Digital Delights image but we love it when you do and then you can count it twice.  

Well this is my last day in Las Vegas (which feels really weird as I am scheduling this so I haven't even left for Florida yet lol). I would normally be fed up when I get back but my DH and I have booked to go there for Christmas so I will be looking forward to that. How strange Christmas in Vegas - very kitsch!!

Thanks so much for looking, once I get over my jet lag I will be round all your blogs to catch up with all your wonderful designs I have missed!! Take care xx

I thought I was the only one who did this sort of thing (ie put first attempts into the bin). I think the box looks great with the Stickles though. Beautifully shaded ribbon! Great card.
