Thankful Blog Hop with the Stampers Dozen

Hello Stamping Friends,

It's November and another hop with the Stamper Dozen ladies. This month's theme is thankful/grateful. November is the month where we all stop to think about how grateful we are for all we have, but I think we should do it everyday. Even through the tough times there is always something to be thankful for.

I started creating thinking I was going to make a fall card using leaves in great fall colors. I decided to us the Beauty of the Earth designer series paper as my color inspiration. Well, once I started creating and stamping several different leaves from the Love of Leaves stamp set in different colors and the So Grateful greeting from the Ornate Thanks stamp set, I decided I wanted to use the So Grateful greeting in the four colors I was using. The only problem with that was that now my four different sized leaves just weren't working.

Then, I realized, the smallest leaf looked like a heart if I cut the stem off and turned it upside down. (Which then gave me an idea for Valentine's Day, you'll have to wait to see that) So I stamped the leaf in the three other colors and decided a heart was the perfect accent to the So Grateful sentiments. What do you think?

This is one card that didn't turn out the way I initially imagined in my head, but I absolutely love it. Probably more than what I thought I was going to do when I started creating.
