Hi everyone, I had a great time this weekend at my scrapbook retreat. I'm working on some fun projects to show you so stay tuned. Today I have a card to show you that I made for my dad's birthday. His last name is Wheat so this card is totally suitable for him. I used the stamp set from Papertrey Ink called First Fruits. It's a totally unique set, perfect for fall occasions. The images in the set are so elegant and well thought out. They would be perfect for making Thanksgiving table settings,etc. So many times we seem to skip right over the importance of our Thanksgiving holiday. I think friends and family would love getting a card during this time of year, telling them how thankful you are for them.
For the birthday card, I embossed the wheat image with gold embossing powder and layered it onto Gold Shimmer Cardstock and Dark Chocolate Cardstock. The coordinating background paper is Papertrey's First Fruits patterned paper. My dad loves fall colors, especially brown, so this card was perfect for him. I finished off the card with some Papertrey Gold Sheer Metallic Edge ribbon and a birthday sentiment from Papertrey's Mixed Messages stamp set.
I hope you all find some time this month to just be with your families and friends...to sit and relax and visit.....and just be thankful for the important people in our life. Have a great day everyone!!
What are your big plans for Thanksgiving this year? We're staying close to home so that we can relax and take a break from all the girls' activities. I'm looking forward to some juicy turkey, my mom's wonderful cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie......playing games with the girls.....maybe a hay rack ride if I can talk my dad into firing up the tractor.....a walk through the timber......maybe catch that movie called *Four Christmases*.....ahhhhhh, I can hardly wait.
