So Thankful at The Cuttlebug Spot

Hi all!!! This week at The Cuttlebug Spot we are giving thanks with our projects. I kicked around this one for a few days trying to come up with something catchy and cute - yeah, well I ended up with just another card. Some days the mojo is flowing, others it isn't. I had my card ALMOST finished when my daughter asked what I had used the CB on!! DOH!! I had to restructure the card and include something from the CB which is embossing on the flower and I used my Nestabilities to cut out the scalloped shapes to make the flower. Some days I am so scatterbrained I know!!! I think I have a lot on my mind awaiting the doctor appointment on the 11th so I will blame all of my forgetfulness lately on that!!!

So, on to my card:


And Copics used (you can see from this pic that I changed the mat for the image too - I loved that mat but didn't do my measurements quite right as it was too big for the card when I went to assemble......ugh):


I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I wish you a happy week! We are closing in on the holidays and being so far from home is getting to me. I miss my friends and family - I love Albuquerque don't get me wrong but with no one here to hang out with at all, no decent scrappy stores and still trying to recover from our being out of work for almost a year and then the move it is pretty depressing at times. Sorry, I try to keep the negative and not so fun stuff from the blog but as I am typing this on Sunday evening (love auto post) I am experiencing a mix of emotions and sometimes it is best to just get them out!!!

Stay tuned for more work this week (hopefully) and my Charisma reveal come Thursday!!!

Where can I find that stamp?


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???

With that said..........
