Thanksgiving Cards for the Troops Unscripted


I have been working on Thanksgiving cards for the troops. Here are a few I worked on this weekend. I followed the Unscripted Sketches layout. The base card stock is SU Creamy Caramel or Lure Luxury Green Apple. I embossed some core card stock with Cuttlebug's Autumn Type folder. Then I sanded that. I have been looking for that folder and found it on Sunday after leaving the clinic. It turned out that I had a sinus infection. I just wasn't getting better so I went in and got an antibiotic. I also picked up the ribbon I used on these cards when I got the folder. The stamp set I used was Autumn Beauty by Theresa Momber. The buckles are from CTMH. The little leaf was cut with my Cricut and the Tinker Bell cartridge. The inside is stamped with Happy Thanksgiving. That's about all.
Thanks for stopping and let me know what you think.

Beautiful work on this one Linda, I love how you turned the sentiment into like a little pumpkin! Thanks for being Unscripted!!!

Glad to hear you're on the mend. I've been sick all week (even canceled half my conferences) and am NOT feeling better. We'll see what tomorrow brings....
