Give Thanks

I love being able to find multiple uses for stamps, other than for what they were originally intended.  This is especially true with the holiday stamp sets, but is also true when a non-holiday stamp is used in a holiday card.  Today's card uses a stamp from the Mixed Bunch stamp set in a Thanksgiving card.  Have a look!

Harvest of Blessings

Will you get a lot of Trick or Treaters coming to your house tonight?  For years we got 10-15 kids per year, and even though I always prepared for more, they never came.  Last year, we set a record.  Almost 50 kids.  Finally!  We always decorate the yard for Halloween and it was so nice that so many got to see it!  So this year, I'm prepared for 60-70 kids.  And guess what?  We're supposed to have storms!  It looks like I may have a lot of left overs to take into the office on Friday!  What about you?  Do you have a lot of Trick or Treaters at your house?
 
So with Halloween behind us (almost), it's time to turn our thoughts to Thanksgiving.  With that in mind, I have this card for you.  You'll most likely see this set a couple more times because ideas are forming for different cards using this set.  It wasn't quite what I wanted when I was done, so I added some Gorgeous Grunge.  That seemed to give it a finish I liked.
 
 
Supply list:
Harvest of Thanks Stamp Set - wood #131736, clear #131739
Truly Grateful Stamp Set - wood #131730, clear #131733
Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set - wood #130514, clear #130517
