...ThANkFuL for YoU...

I used the Deconstructing Jen sketch over on the exTrEmELy talented Jen Shults' blog

and the goodies in my AwEsOMe new TaYLoReD ExPreSsioNs KI kit to make this card.

The colors in the kit just happened to match the 

challenge this week which was a color palette by the super talented Charmaine Ikach

The challenge this week was to use these colors to make a thank you card and send it to someone not expecting one.  I know where it's going and that there's a tasty prize going with it, but since it's not getting delivered until tomorrow, and the person might be looking at this post before then...I can't say more than that :)

Here's my card...everything in it came out of a KI kit...most of it was this month's but the pearls were from past month and the fabric flowers were from a different month...there are aLWaYS a bunch of fun goodies in the kit...gorgeous paper, coordinating cardstock, ribbon, and a fun they come in amazing little storage boxes.  My kits have been a squidge in there are a dozen or so of them stacked up and many haven't been touched...oops...but I've set a goal to use something from every kit before the end of the year...I used 3 kits today...WoO-HoO!!

I used a copic on the center of the fabric flower and threw on a few PTI buttons and another pearl to tie it in to the card...I love this sketch and want to use the adorable new Penny Black stamps I just bought to try it again...I think my cute little reindeer girl would fit perfectly in the center ;)

Here's a closer view of the center.  I used the new TE stamp set that was a special purchase available to KI kit club was HaLF PRiCe!!!!!  AMaZinG!!!  LooK at how adorable that wreath is!! LoVE it!!

That's all for today...I have to go finish a big ol' wood project I've been working on all's for my son's school Fallfest...better get a move on if it's going to get done by tomorrow...YiKeS!!

Thanks for LoOking!
