Thankful for You

Good morning. I don't know about you but the weekend just flew by for me. And here we are with another manic Monday.

I recently have become reacquainted with Stampin' Up products after a very long hiatus with a purchase of some new inks and matching cardstock some of which figure prominently on today's project. I used the September Sketch for You to Try (#4) for the layout although I took a few liberties with it. Lots of tags and tag based cards from me lately. I already had all my Reverse Confetti guest designer projects completed before this sketch was published so it's purely coincidental that I'm featuring yet another tag on today's card.

I started out by stamping the  Reverse Confetti Whole Lotta Dots set onto the tag shape using SU Midnight Muse ink and matching cardstock for a tone on tone look. I then added the bit of burlap ribbon secured with a button at the top. I stamped the sentiment from the new Forever Fall set with SU Gumball Green onto a die cut piece. I love that even though it's a fall set there are sentiments that work for anytime of the year. After stamping the chevrons from the Arrows 'n Elements set, I fussy cut them out and attached to a strip of SU Baked Brown Sugar cardstock. A wood veneer star and a couple of sequins provided the only finishing touches as I wanted to retain the masculine feel of the card. The patterned paper came from the new Glitz Design Dapper Dan 6x6 pad. I have to admit that I went all in on the new Glitz pads! Frankly, I've pretty much spent my crafty budget for the remainder of the year between the SU and new paper pads. .

I'm off to start the laundry. Laundry and Mondays kinda go together, don't you think? Thanks for stopping by.
