Giving Thanks

Hi, and welcome!

Have you got that Friday feeling?  Some of you might remember the TV ad for a certain chocolate bar that used that catch-phrase.....and I loved that chocolate bar....still do, actually....hahaaaa!

If it's Friday, so that means it's challenge time at Card Crafter's Circle .....woohoo!

Our challenge for you this week, is to create following our theme


Your creation could be about the holiday Thanksgiving, or could be a Thank You for another reason... we don't mind, as long as you're giving thanks!

We are so happy to have Milk Coffee Stamps joining us again with sponsorship for you!  The winner's prize purse is their choice of 3 Milk Coffee images of their choice! Yummy! And our super sponsor also provides each of our Top 3 with an image of their choice too! Yay!

I decided to make a "Thank You" card and used the very sweet Antique Bicycle as the focus.....

 White card base, layered with pretty freebie papers and some pink glittery thread used to sew around the edges......
I used a pink piece of paper from the same freebie pack to make the pretty frame, and coloured up the sweet image with my Promarkers........I always wanted a pink bike....hahaaaa!  I added a little sparkle to the flowers in that cute basket.......

I thought an antique bicycle deserved to have some pretty lace..........

It's been a while since I made some of these net flowers.......I added a diecut leaf to keep them company......

Craftwork Cards kindly donated the sentiment.......nah.....I had to pay for a pack of 'em....hahaaa......but I'm open to kind offers, lol......

All done!

You really do need to pop over to see what our Design Team has been up to.......they love to show off,
and it would make their day!

  1. Hi Anne-Marie

    Wonderful card with such lovely cheery colours - love those net flowers - brilliant.

    Sorry I haven't been able to pop by sooner - I've been having horrible problems with Blogger but hopefully everything is sorted now (fingers crossed!).

    Thanks for dropping by to see me and leaving me some much appreciated comments.

    Have a great weekend.

    Take care.
