cQc #217 ~ Thank U!

Hey there peeps I'm back again! 
For my DeNami post please click here. 

If you're from the states you're probably up to your elbows in Thanksgiving preparations!! Maybe between chopping and baking you can get a little crafting time in *wink*! We have another fallish color offering from the ColourQ this week, with a bit of bright happiness thrown in. I went with a fun thank you card this week, have a look.



I actually started this card with the MFT die cut leaves and had to build from there! I had a small piece of Tangerine Tango cardstock embossed with this whimsical curly pattern. I haven't used my leaf dies much this fall and wanted to give them their due. Word to the wise, die cut then emboss. The die cutting flattened my embossing out a bit. I think it still looks cute, but would have preferred it the other way. Oh well, live and learn! My stamps are both by Precious Remembrance Shop. Isn't the {thank u} word search cute! And those circle are just too much fun. 


Enjoy your day and thanks ever so much for stopping by ~Lisa

Once again, Lisa....you are so very creative! Love the 'word search'. Where ever did you find that?

I need more crafty time! I am not one that is domestic in the kitchen. My Dad loved to cook, and my Mom did too. I suppose I would rather play with paper, but I guess that doesn't feed us huh!

Your card is fantastic. I love the way you worked the colors in. Color challenges can be intimidating with that many colors and combos, but you my friend did a fabulous job! (As always).

Oh, I really, really like this, Lisa! The colors you used with all the elements are just PERFECT! LOVE the embossing on those leaves!!!
It IS funny how we manage to find a little time to work a little crafting time into our Turkey Day preparations! I think I'm now into things up past my elbows! Tomorrow, company begins arriving and I'll soon be in that panic mode! LOL! :) It's all good in my book, though!!!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

p.s. The stamp I used today is from the Sweet Stamp Shop and I actually wrote the UPS on the truck in place of the "special delivery" that is on the original stamp. :)

Oh, wow this is fantastic Lisa! I love how you used the colors and the word search stamp is so cool! Thankfully, my sister is in charge of the turkey this year and I just have to provide the appetizers so I think I can squeeze in a craft or two this week! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
