cQc #215 ~ Give Thanks!

Hello and welcome all! We have another beautiful autumnal color palette this week for the ColourQ challenge joined with a delightful inspiration photo. I decided to go very clean and simple today while matching my design to the photo. I think it turned out kind of sweet!



If you've followed my blog for very long you know I love little clusters of pretties! This one contains a MFT royal rolled rose (made from Rich Razzleberry paper), buttons and sparkly rhinestones. See this adorable sentiment...it was in the Archiver's $1.99 hot spot years ago. I used it a few times and thought ehhh. But I pulled it out again to give it another go and what to my wondrous eyes did appear...polka dots in the words!! Those were not there before ~ just goes to show you what good ink does for a cheapo clear stamp! I think the ink I was using before was something free given away at Archiver's with a purchase. This time I used PTI Autumn Rose and I was awarded with those sweet little polka dots. I'm a happy girl now and so glad I gave this stamp by Autumn Leaves another try.



Thank you so very much for stopping in today. Blessings ~Lisa
