Give Thanks

Happy Wednesday : ) ! It's a very happy day for me because for the first time in weeks I was able to do the Sketch challenge at SCS!!! This is SC185, but I did change it from a rectangle to a square... I think that's okay? You can see that sketch and the challenge details right HERE! This stamp is part of the Give Thanks set, just released by ODBD! At first glance, you might just think of this as a Thanksgiving set (like the card I made yesterday), and it is a fantastic Thanksgiving set...but it's so much more!! The scriptures that come with this set can be used all year round. You'll be seeing more of this set later in the week!!
These cards both feature the brand new Pink Pirouette cardstock and Bella Rose DP, from the the upcoming SU Fall/Winter catalog. Pink Pirouette is one of the new in-colors and it is lovely. SU hit the nail on the head this year with those in-colors, I love 'em all : ) !!! And the new Bella Rose DP...oh yeah, it's gorgeous, every single sheet!
The second card also has scallops that were made with the brand new SU Scallop Edge Punch. It's super easy to use and makes beautiful scallops! It will also be available, along with the new cardstock & DP on August 11th when the new F/W catalog is released!! Hey, this is one of the perks of being a demonstrator, we get to pre-order some of the goodies and try 'em out. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it, LOL!!! I sponged some Pink Pirouette ink onto flowers from the Pretties kit and made them just the right color for the card!
Tomorrow, I have some tagging to do : ) ... and a few awards to give out! That's always fun. Thanks for stopping by & have a great evening!!

Nancy, these cards are so beautiful; I love the scripture, the papers are lovely too. they could also be used as condolences cards. Well done.

I finally found out what the new in-colors are! I must have been under a rock, cuz I've seen a couple, but didn't know what they all were. I don't have a demonstrator this year as mine (Lori C.) quit doing SU this last year. :-(
LOVE your cards!
