My Sheri Crafts Challenge #098: Thanksgiving

A very fitting challenge this week @ My Sheri Crafts where our theme is Thanksgiving and we're asking you to create a card/project showing thanks!
I'm calling this my "vintage thanks" card since even though The Green Stack by DCWV that I used for this challenge was from 2008, I only recently spotted and purchased it, simply because the little animal characters therein are just too cute to resist -- LOL!!! This is one of my FAV papers from the stack and I decided to keep it simple, first merely stamping my 'thanks' sentiment from a 'vintage 2007' Stampendous set ("Mega Thanks") right onto the BG paper.  Next I stamped the letters on 3 different papers from the stack, fussy cutting them individually and pop dotting them in place over my stamped image. I added the 'many' stamp from the same set and 3 Dew Drops  (The Robin's Nest circa 2008) along the paper's border strip, roughed up my edges, then sponged a bit of Walnut Stain distress ink to all edges. Simple, fun and another thank you card to put in my ready to finish and mail stack -- YAY!!!

Why don't you post a thanks project to our My Sheri Crafts' challenge?!  We'd LOVE to see your ideas!!!
