In A Thankful Mood

I found out a few days ago my grandparents won't be joining us this year for thanksgiving so I had to get a card in the mail today! My grandpa isn't getting up much lately and so the 20 mile trip would wear him out. We will go see them this weekend I hope. I am thankful they are safe and getting along fairly well. I am also thankful my other grandparents are still getting along well in their own home. And I realize how blessed we are to have them all still a part of our lives.

Luckily I ordered a pack of the Autumn Vine dsp recently so this card only took a couple minutes which means I will be able to get it sent today! Everything is from SU!
Here is a quick run-down of the other things I used. Die-cut bird from Big Shot starter kit, leaf stamp and word rub-on from level 3 hostess set, Eastern Blooms branch (I omitted the flowers), and more mustard cs. It's hard to see but I stamped over the leaves with gold and brushed gold on the greeting edge. Marker colors are bravo burgundy, always artichoke, close to cocoa, and really rust. The layout is from last week's scs challenge SC203.

Remember, the big Extravaganza Sale starts tomorrow at Stampin Up! Visit www.tashahickert.stampinup.net Wed. morning for the big announcement!

Thanks for stopping by!
Till next time, Tasha

Great Card Tasha! I really like it! You must have been a proactive stamper and cut some extra's from the Big Shot since it is at your crazy neighbors house right now!! Oh well at least you will probably get it back over the long weekend!!!
