Simple Thanks

Today is another CBC Challenge day, and this week's challenge is the following sketch. I drew this one up eons ago, long before circles were all the rage in sketches. I feel like such a trendsetter. ;o) lol.

And here is my take on the sketch:


I had so many ideas for this sketch, but in the end I wound up doing a simple thanksgiving card. We are back to fighting with our little one every night to get him to sleep and stay asleep, so my crafting time was limited last night. Thankfully, the pediatrician changed our meds again (for reflux, if you haven't been following the drama), so hopefully we'll have smooth sailing from here on out. Think happy thoughts for us!

The embossed area on the card is a Cuttlebug embossing folder, and the leaves are from Sweet n' Sassy Stamps Autumn Blessing set. I stamped them in Bravo Burgundy (same color as base of card) and then used my aquapainter and watercolor crayons to color them in.

Thanks so much to everyone who gave their congrats on my exciting news yesterday! I can't wait to get started. :)

Beautiful card. Hey, can I borrow that sketch and use it on the website I mod? It's a clean and simple sketch and I think that maybe it might be of interest to some of our beginners? Can I huh, pweeze?
