So Thankful!

Today, I thought I would post four cards that I made over the weekend for a class I am teaching at my local scrapbook store. They are made using various Lawn Fawn stamp sets, stamped and then colored with Copic markers. I just love Lawn Fawn stamps because they give you a clean, crisp image every time.

You've heard me say it before but I'm in love with Lawn Fawn alphabets because no matter the word that you want to spell, no matter the set you use, the spacing between the letters is always perfect. Check out the sentiment on my round card...I created it by just lining the individual letters up on an acrylic block. OK, I admit it, I'm proud of myself for coming up with this one (my son is a huge Star Wars fan and while creating this weekend, I kept hearing a Star Wars commercial).

I will be entering these cards in a couple of great challenges that are going on right now. Click on the links if you are interested in learning more and want to play along.

The first is a World Card Making Day Challenge over at the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog. In honor of World Card Making Day, the challenge is to make a card, any theme using Lawn Fawn. How cool! But hurry, this challenge is over at midnight tonight.

The second challenge is over at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. The challenge, make any card you like and then donate it to a worthy cause. This really hits home with me (ever wonder about the name of my blog?) so I love this challenge. Because I'm using these cards in a class I'm going to teach, I will end up making several. I plan on donating all of them to my local Meals-On-Wheels program so they can be given to shut-ins along with their Thanksgiving dinners.

Thanks very much to both blogs for all of their inspiration. And thank you for visiting. I am very grateful for each and every one of you. Good Night!


  1. Oh, I love all three of your cards! But your last one pulls at my heart strings! GORGEOUS GORGEOUS GORGEOUS!

  2. These are stunning Melinda! I really love fall colours on kraft, they just seem to go perfectly with each other. I think it's a fantastic idea to donate cards to the Meals on Wheels (I donate to OWH), how nice to receive a card when a meal is delivered, especially on Thanksgiving! (PS: Thank you so much for cisiting my blog the other day and leaving me such a sweet comment, I really appreciate it!).

  3. These are truly stunning! I love all the different designs you came up with and the sentiment on the shaped card is so clever! I wish I lived closer and could take this class. I'm thinking of getting some Copic markers and your coloring is always so beautiful!

  4. Your cards are gorgeous, Melinda! Thank you so much for playing along with us at Lawnscaping! :)

  5. Wow!! Your coloring is amazing! I love the leaves colors of the first one and the sentiment of the turkey card is brilliant, you made me laugh! Wonderful cards, I love them all :)

  6. These cards are gorgeous! I love the turkey card, my boys are Star Wars nuts and would love this one! Beautiful coloring too!
