A Thankful Blast from the Past!

Good Morning!  Can you believe that November is half over??  It'll be Christmas before we know it!

I have taken a little break from my Christmas Cards to play in the Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past Blog Hop.  These hops are so perfect to make sure I get out that rubber that hasn't gotten much lovin' lately!

The theme this month was "thankful", and since you can't EVER have enough thank you cards...

I pulled out Summer Afternoon, which I haven't used in forever!  I coloured the image with my SU markers, in Rich Razzleberry and Lucky Limeade, then stamped it onto Kraft cardstock.  The butterfly was stamped in Melon Mambo ink.  I then cut the image out using my square nestabilities, and then traved around the edges for some detail.

I flipped the sketch to make it work for my image!   The papers I used are from the My Minds Eye Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky collection.  I am so happy with how this card turned out!  I think I'll have to make a few more of this one!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Remember to check the list out at the end of this post, and hop through the blogs for a chance to win some TE goodies!

Have a great day!

This is SOOOO PRETTY! LOVE the patterned papers, the water color effect of the stamped image, and the way you traced around the edges of the rectangles!
