Bunches Of Thanks!


Hi everyone

It’s time for another challenge over on the Crazy 4 Challenges challenge blog.

This week our challenge hostess for October Vicki Garrett challenged us to be Truly Thankful. This is the weekend that they celebrate Thanksgiving in Canada. So we had to create a card with a Thankful Theme ….. it could be a thank you or a Thanksgiving card.

Last week when I was checking my google reader, I discovered this fun watering can template on the Create 4 Fun’s challenge blog. I just loved the idea so I decided I had to make one myself and it would work perfectly with the new MFT Stamps “Garden of Joy” Stamp set that was released during the week. The sentiment is from Flopsey's Flowers set. So this is what I decided to use for my Thankful card today.


Technically I guess it isn’t a card as it is 3D and you can actually put something inside the watering can. But a card can really be whatever you want it to be right!

I used Martha Stewart’s picket fence border punch along the bottom of the watering can for a fun border.


Don't forget to check out the rest of the C4C Designers cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.
