cQc #215 ~ Happy Thanksgiving!

I don't know about the rest of you, but I just can't believe it's November and I'm planning my Thanksgiving dinner already! Time flies huh. This past week sure flew by and we're ready for another group of colors at the ColourQ. Here's what I have for you today, I hope it inspires you!



This wheat stamp from Magenta has always been a favorite of mine. I stamped then masked off my PTI die cut to get the wheat inside the circle. It's stamped twice with dark chocolate ink. Another autumn favorite is this Thanksgiving sentiment by Impress, love the font! See those sparkly blue gems? I had planned to use buttons on my card. But a little portion of the "g" in my sentiment didn't stamp and when my card was finished I found a spot on the upper left of my white cardstock base. So my gems are hiding those imperfections!! 




I hope you have time to play along with us this week. 
Be sure to stop by to see the pretty projects from the team. 
Have a great day ~Lisa

Beautiful Lisa! I love the lacy layer under the label. And how clever to use gems to cover up the boo boo!

LOVE the gems - even the reason WHY they are there! The wheat is FAB and I have always loved that mat! Great font too! LOVE this card!

This is so pretty. What a great use of the colors. Glad to see that others make boo boo's on their cards, too. The gemstone is a perfect way to cover it up.

Simply gorgeous! love the colors and the way you added only bits of blue. I cannot believe its nov. Bling is good for all kinds of reasons.

Brenda said...

Gorgeous colours Lisa and I love the touch you added with the doily!

Wowzer--I love every single thing about this card, Lisa! Is that a PTI stamp on the die cut? I have the die, but no matching stamps. Love the wheat (about to dig out some Magenta stamps for their challenge) & the font on the sentiment is wonderful! So much inspiration, as always!

Claire said...

Fabulous use of all the colours as always Lisa - love that the rust is the predominant colour and that stamp is so pretty
