Sweet Sunday....Truly Grateful




Happy Sunday Peeps!!!


Here is the sweet sketch Karen has for us this week:


As you can see I flipped the sketch.
I wanted to use this image from the retired Stampin Up Give Thanks stamp set. Actually this image is also in the current Best of Autumn set but generally those images are a bit smaller than the original one. I don't have the Best of Autumn, sometimes I hate to get those when I have most of the originals. Anyway the image is stamped onto some white card stock and colored with copic markers. 


The DSP is from a retired pack and I used my mat pack and piercing tool to pierce all around the card and then I hand sewed, yes all by hand! I used some crochet thread.
The sentiment is from the Truly Grateful stamp set and I added some old olive Candy Dots under the sentiment. I sponged the main panel using Crumb Cake ink.

Now let's see what the rest of the girls did with this fun sketch:



Thanks for stopping by today

Ok first off....I can't believe you hand sewed that! You totally rock in my book! I do NOT have the patience for that....hahaha! I will admire yours though!

Your apple image turned out beautifully! Fabulous fall card!

Interesting. I didn't know that the "Best of" series didn't stamp at the original size. Good to know! I really love your apples, such a nice job of coloring. And I took notice of your hand stitching. It really does have a nice impact!

Have a great Sunday!
