Give Thanks

Hello and good morning from a very chilly Liverpool!

Autumn is here in all it's glory and Winter is waiting in the wings ... 
We have a lot to be Thankful for here though ... We don't suffer the hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes or floods etc., that Mother Nature expresses to many parts of the globe

Thankful is the challenge at City Crafter this week where I am hosting

We want to see a card or project that includes either the word 
Thanks, Thankful, or Grateful

This week we are Thankful to our wonderful sponsor ... who is offering a stamp set set of choice to the winner of this challenge!

Finally onto my card

The flower is made from acetate printed on my computer ... which I backed onto white CS and die cut using the TH Tattered Florals die - for the flower centre I used a brad which has an clear epoxy dome - I cut a small piece of scrap paper (with the butterfly on) and sealed it behind the clear epoxy dome

The word Thankful is done using a PTI die and the beautiful woodgrain is actually a scrap of wallpaper! I use double sided tape on it before cutting which really makes it easy to adhere onto my card ...

Ok ... So now its over to you ... Hop over to the CCCB Blog and take a look at the lovely creations from our team ... and link up your entry to be in with a chance to win a fabulous stamp set from 

I'll be back with you tonorrow - till then have a lovely day!
