So thankful

Hi everyone! Hope you've been enjoying some cooler weather where you are! Our summer here in north Florida was long and hot, and we sure are loving the nighttime temps we're having in the 50s! I admit to having a bad case of 'fall fever' which is definitely evident in the next few projects I'll be showcasing. ;)

I'm happy to be hosting another StampTV Weekly Challenge, and many thanks to the lovely Karen Hightower for asking me to play! My theme this week is You Have Me In Stitches - so lets see some real or faux stitching on your project, or maybe some good humor! Come play with us for a chance to win a grab bag of super awesome Gina K Designs goodies! And if you aren't a member of StampTV, come on over and join! It's free and there's always something fun going on!

I used the pretty sunflower and one of the sentiments from the GKD Harvest of Wishes mini stamp set along with a variety of gorgeous autumn/fall colors of GKD cardstock to create this fun file folder note card which is somewhat CAS. And another fun fold... you know me and the fancy fold kind of summer I've had! ;)

I cut the card base from kraft using my WRMK envelope punch board. I stamped the focal image on kraft and colored it with distress markers which really makes it pop. The flags and square and rectangle die cuts are all stitched in keeping with my challenge theme. I added several orange sequins to finish it off.

No file folder is complete without paper in it, so that's the writing space inside this note card, lol! :)

Proud to enter this note card in the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory, Cherry Red, Tomato Soup and Sweet Mango; Stampin' Up! Kraft
  • Stamps: GKD Harvest of Wishes mini stamp set
  • Ink: Memento Espresso Truffle; Ranger distress markers- Vintage Photo, Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey, Scattered Straw and Shabby Shutters
  • Dies: MFT Die-namics Stitched Rectangle Stax, MFT Die-namics Stitched Square Stax, Lil Linker Designs Stitched Sentiment Flag, Paper Smooches Notebook Basic
  • Accessories: We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board, Doodlebug Design Rainbow Sequins, Darice brown foam, Glossy Accents (to apply sequins)

I hope you've found a little inspiration to play in my stitches challenge this week over at StampTV! Any stamps, inks and embellishments can be used, but if you use GKD stamps exclusively, you play for a chance to win a grab bag of GKD goodies! How awesome is that?! And remember, it's free to join StampTV! Hope to see you there!
Scrappy hugs,
