Just Be Thankful

Colors: Calypso Coral, Very Vanilla, Basic Black. Stamps: Just Believe.  Punches: Decorative Label.  Accessories: First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper, Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon, 1/4" Black Grosgrain Ribbon.

Earlier this week, I showed you a Thank You Card we'll be making at Susie's private Thank You Card class.  This is the other one.  Just Believe was my favorite new stamp set in the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog. Sometimes I get sooo busy using the new products, I forget about the older favorites so it was fun to pull this one out again.  I just love using this image as a silhouette like in this example, or coloring the stamp with markers for a more natural look.

It also morphed into this week's Stampin' Addicts Sketch Challenge.  Anyone is invited to play along in any of the great challenges we offer at Stampin' Addicts.  The site also has a wonderful Stampin' Up! only gallery organized by stamp set that anyone can visit any time.  Ever stumped on what to do with a particular stamp set, or just need new ideas for an old favorite, the Stampin' Addict Gallery will inspire you!

I also wanted to share with you a little sneak peek of a project I've been working on this week for my Spooktacular Stampin' Buffet.  Starting next week, you'll start to see a lot of Halloween Projects, including the rest of this fun project, posted here so stay tuned!!

And I'm trying out some new share it tools.  Try them out and tell me what you think!
