Thankful For You...Day 1 Giveaway!

During this season of Thanksgiving, I'd like to take this opportunity to say thank you , and tell you how thankful I am for all of you!  Thank you for being a part of my blog, for leaving comments and encouraging my heart!! Over the last 3+ years, this blog has been my creative outlet for my card making in the midst of my son's 24/7 care... my FUN passion!!  Having you all be a part of my creative journey makes me smile!!!
My thanks and huge hugs to Heidi Klausing Crowl, the owner of Simon Says Stamp, for inviting me to be a part of the Simon Says Stamp Artist group nearly 2 years ago and a part of the Simon family!!  I have been given, with great happiness, the ability to create with the amazing, wonderful Simon products...it's a dream come true, a company that really speaks to my creativity...I SO LOVE Simon Says Stamp!!!  I am thankful for the opportunity to represent them through my blog!!
I will be giving away some Simon Says Stamp stamps, stencils, dies and a few other things for the next 5 days just saying "THANK YOU"...I am SO thankful for you!!  I thought it would be "funner" to have FIVE winners than one, plus, if you already own the day's giveaway, you can skip commenting for that day:)!!  Simply leave a comment...you can tell me what you're thankful for...and I will keep the giveaways open until Friday, November 28th at 5pm!  I will announce the winners on Saturday, November 29th!  PLEASE make sure you have an email I can reach you by, in case I don't hear from you when the winners are announced!!  The prize for today is below my card:)!

I googled Thanksgiving colors the other day and all my cards for the next 5 days will use the exact same colors... different images, layouts, cardstock, and sentiments:)!  Here's today's card...
I used the new Line Shape dies from Simon as well as an older Simon sentiment from the Lots of Thanks set,  that I masked and stamped... each letter individually.  I then die cut each piece of the banner with the letter on it, and a separate die cut piece behind each letter that went over the twine.  Then I masked the whole top of the sentiment and stamped the bottom below the banner on the card.  Here's the sentiment...
            This one right above
Cool how you can make  sentiment into a whole card:)... and here's today's giveaway...
 Simon Holiday Layered Trees stamp set, Christmas Scene Stencil and Mosaic Ornaments Stencil, and Kringle and Co Christmas 6 x 6 paper pad!    Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  25. Your card is fantastic. I really love the colors and the simplicity of it - the sentiment says it all. I am so thankful for my grandchildren - they have taught me to slow down and enjoy life. I would say before they were born I was so uptight and anal and now I am learning to enjoy every minute with them and I have had to learn that the house will get messy and I can clean it up later. Thank you for posting each day - I love to see what others create and how inspiring other's cards are to get me motivated to create.

  83. I'm thankful to have such beautiful inspiration for card making from blogs like yours when I've lost my mojo. I tried blogging for a year and was exhausted by the amount of work that it requires to take pics, upload them, watermark them (not sure I needed to), and then write about them. Not to mention linking to products or stores. And if you try to enter cards into challenges... phew, that is a job in it self. So, I am totally thankful that you and others continue to do the work to inspire the rest of us!!!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Love the card. I'm thankful for bloggers like you who share their creativity. Thanks so much for a chance to win. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
