Rejoice in the Lord... Always

 I thought I'd share a non-traditional Thanksgiving design I put together earlier in the month. I made 6 of the same design to send out to a few friends. I really love this "New Every Morning" set. It has some really great and inspiring quotes and scriptures that I can see myself using again and again. I also used a scripture for the inside about "giving thanks", which is perfect for a Thanksgiving card.
 I stamped circle images using white ink onto vellum, which was the starting point for the entire design. I then chose the colors I wanted to use and was thrilled to find some cute pattern paper that coordinated perfectly. It's from Authentique, I believe.
The background was embossed using a folder from The Paper Studio that I picked up at Hobby Lobby a few years ago. A few crystal clear sequins finished the design off as well as a little bow of black baker's twine. These will be popped in the mail today to reach their recipients just in time for Thanksgiving! I'm hosting for the first time this year and I'm super excited! Happy Thanksgiving to you and thanks for fluttering by!

P.S. I spent yesterday evening cleaning and organizing my desk and studio so I can dive headfirst into my Christmas projects! I'm so excited! I love crafting for Christmas so stay tuned for some fun projects!

Whoa! So glad you're back! Life gets busy I guess! Love your card, it's beautiful! Great idea to make multiples as it lets you catch up. I'm making two of every Christmas card and it sure seems like I've made more than I have! Can't wait to see your Christmas stuff.
