SOS 375: Thanks-giving

Hope you guys have had a nice October so far.  I am enjoying the sights, smells, and foods of the fall season, my favorite of the year.

This week at Shopping Our Stash,our hostess is Donna and she is asking that we make a card of thanks-giving, or one of Thanksgiving, as yesterday, October 8, was Canadian Thanksgiving.

My creation for this week is a thank-you requested by our local cheer coach to give to a parent that had been helpful during a fundraiser.  The school colors are green and white, so I went with a green background:


  • The inked background is on Ranger Yupo paper.  This is stashy because I seldom use it because I don't want to waste it!
  • All alcohol inks are over a year old-- 3 out of 4 of them are over two years old.  I used the following inks by Ranger: Meadow, Oregano, Stream, and Gold mixative.
  • The floral stamp was bought at the thrift store a couple years ago.  I inked it with a Versamark pad in Champagne and heat-embossed with Ranger EP in Princess Gold.
  • I wrote the "Thank you" with a fine-tip Ranger Letter It pen and heat-embossed with Princess Gold.
That's all!  Hope you can join us for this practical challenge-- I mean, we can always use thank you cards, and nobody would frown upon a belated Canadian Thanksgiving greeting!

See you at Shopping Our Stash!
