Grateful For You...

Good morning!
Last week I saw the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and drew a quick picture of the design on a scratch piece of paper and made a mental note to make something before the deadline of Monday. Well, low and behold that same night I woke up in the middle of the night knowing exactly what I was going to make. :)
I made this card last Friday, but didn't have time to get posted until now with Halloween celebrating and all!   Here's the sketch:

And here's the card I made:
I am in love with all the colors I used for this card.  I also love, love the font and style of the stamp set from Merry Everything!  And with the matching dies to the Fall Fest stamp set, this card was a breeze to make! And doesn't that Filigree Frame embossing folder look nice?  

I really like the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  You should head on over to their challenge blog and check out all of the beautiful creations made by other talented stampers.
A few stamping notes:
The leaves surrounding the main phrase were first stamped off onto a piece of scratch paper to obtain a softer look. Grateful for You was stamped in Early Espresso. I colored my Rhinestones with Blendabilities.
Ink: Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz and More Mustard
Paper: Soft Suede, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz and Very Vanilla (and retired DSP paper)

Stamp sets and accessories:

Fall Fest Photopolymer Bundle                Merry Everything Clear-mount Stamp Set              For All Things Clear-mount Stamp Set      Filigree Frame Textured Impressions Embossing Folders  Ovals Collection Framelits Die   Rhinestone Basic Jewels Embellishments

The Fall Fest Bundle is awesome!  Great for Halloween and Thanksgiving cards.  Love those little leaves. They are the perfect size for a handmade card. :)

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you get to stamp a latte! 


  1. So many wonderful details here! I love how the sentiment is stamped on top of your collage of images and the embossing gives this such rich texture. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. Oh this is so lovely Annette! Such a pretty combination of colours, texture and images. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
