Saturday card: Count your blessings

With Thanksgiving at the end of this month,
I count my blessings by designing for such
fabulous people:

Trica from Club Scrap
Michael Strong's stamps
Paulette from Create with TLC

Thank you for all your artworks that I can use
to crete cards, scrapbook pages and other projects.

Today's card is all about Thanksgiving.
The paper of this card is all from Club Scrap's
Oopsie Daisy kit and for the pocket I used the
pocket stencil from the Club Scrap Dungerees kit.
The sentiment on the pocket is from
Create with TLC and you find it 
n her shop HERE for only $ 2,50.
You just save the image to your computer and
print it out any size you need. That is what i like
about digital stamps.

Now the pumpkins you have seen before, are also
a digital image and those you find on the blog of
Michael Strong as a freebie!! You find it HERE

As you can see I added some real greenery and I have 
a little tutorial for you how to make this:
You need:
green washi tape
some metal wire (any color is ok!)
a tooth pick
1. cut a piece of washi tape
and a piece of wire,juste a little shorter then the tape.
Lay the wire on the sticky side of the washi tape
and start folding the washi tape over the wire.
I made 3 folds to cover the wire.

Now you need the tooth pick to fold
the washi wire around.

When finished going round,
you take the tooth pick out. 

I added the pumpkins with foam tape to the card
and placed the washi wire in between the 
pumpkin and the foam tape. 
For some more dimention I have added a little
glossy accent to the pumpkins.
The leaves and weaths are done with a Tim Holtz
 die cut called Autumn Gatherings. it is one of those long
strips. I colored them with vintage photo distress ink.

And last but certainly not least
I bless all of you that come to look at my blog again and again
and leave your wonderful compliments. Thank you!
