CSS Thankful Blog Hop 11-19-2013

Hello, we are so happy to have you join us on this Thanksgiving week for a Thankful blog hop. You should have arrived from Tera Fujan where I am sure you saw an amazing Thankful creation.


I made two samples this time. I am not sure which one I like best but both were fun. This first was made with Sweet Friend for the branch and leaves and Fall Foliage for the sentiment. I colored the leaves with Memento Markers. All card stock for both cards is GKD Pure Luxury, the best around. 


This second card was made with Stately Flowers 6 for the image and Stately Flowers 5 for the sentiment. The patterned paper is GKD called Grateful Heart

Now hop on over to Melissa Shultz to see some more amazingly thankful samples.

Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on Tuesday, November 26.


Thanks for the visit and have a Blessed Thanksgiving!

These are both fabulous cards. I love the colors on the first one. I had not thought of pairing Happy Thanksgiving from Stately 5 with the pine cone from Stately 6. Thanks for giving the inspiration I needed for my Thanksgiving cards!

Love the composition and colors on both cards. Love how the branch comes in from the side on the first one.

Your cards are absolutely gorgeous and the colors amazing. Love the patterned paper you created for the first one, what a lovely job and that ribbon is so uniquely tied. Love the pine cone bough on the second card. The small strip of patterned paper on that one, plus the sweet ribbon and button really make the card pop.
