Thankful!

We have a new challenge at Try It On Tuesday - 'Thankful' 

This can be a straight 'Thanks' as I have, or it can be a reason to be Thankful and surely there is so much - at the moment I am enjoying seeing blue skies again even though it is so cold!
In other places in the World they are pleased to see some rain! 
We have already celebrated Harvest Festival at church but some churches and schools may not have yet! There is also Thanksgiving coming up in the United States if you wish to prepare early! 

The Design Team have come up with a variety of projects to inspire you!


I started by putting some Distress Oxides on my mat before spritzing and running my card through it. I also used Picked Raspberry to colour a small piece of card onto which I stamped the sentiment.
The Woodware stamp was stamped directly onto the card and the sentiment stuck on. I coloured parts of the stamps area and used Glossy Accents to highlight some areas.

Finally I drew a co-ordinating line around the edges.

I hope that you will find a reason to be Thankful and join us!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Such lovely colours in your Thankful card. I thought you had stitched around it but now I see that you drew a line to correspond with the ones around each segment of your image. Whichever it was it still looks good.
Hugs, Neet xx
