SSSC83.......Thankful Thoughts

GOOD SUNDAY MORNING PEEPS!!! It's my favorite time of the week, time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample

This week we're going to start a series of sketches drawn by Nancy McKinney,(you know, THE Nancy McKinney - TE illustrator extraordinaire), and she will be playing along with us too!! Here is the first one:

I started my card with a base of always artichoke and I followed that with some very vanilla card stock. I then used some of the fun wood sheets that I sponged with some chocolate chip ink. The scallop is made with my nesties in always artichoke and the middle with very vanilla. I stamped the sentiment from the Grateful Greetings set with artichoke ink. I cut three leaves from the leaves #2 die, one in tangerine, more mustard and artichoke. I used the square lattice embossing folder on them and sponged them with the same color ink. I used buttons for the strip across the card, I attached them with a needle and some ecru crochet thread. I used a button on the more mustard leaf as well. I added antique brads in each corner.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.

OK, let's see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team has in store for us this week:
