Thank you


Good Morning fellow crafters and bloggers, Alison here today.  Our challenge theme this week is 'Give Thanks' and this can be interpreted in so many ways.   You have plenty of time left to join in this week so it will be great to see what you come up with.
 
I started off with a 6 x 6 blank card base and layered MME papers on American Crafts white cardstock.  I coloured a sweet Sylvia Zet digi-image to match my papers and then set about playing with my dies.
 
The borders down the sides are the elegant Lace Light Deco border, which I think goes with just about anything and everything - its fab!.  I then  used for the first time the Nautical Wheeler Doily - this is a fabulously styled and lacey design and you even get a mini doily that pops out in the middle to use later.  I made my own flowers using Sweet Williams and Roses dies and added some Olive branches to the spray.
 
The sentiment was printed on my PC which I cut out using the coved rectangle and scalloped rectangle mini dies.
 
All dies used on the card are:
 
 
I hope you find time to play along and dont forget there is also daily inspiration from the other talented members of the DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog.
 
Have a smashing week, and thanks so much for visiting today.
 
Alison - 'xtglx'
