Hello everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Anja de Regt our challenge hostess for November has another fun challenge for us.

This week Anja has challenged us to make a card this week with a thankful theme! There are lots of things to be thankful for every day and as the US celebrates Thanksgiving this month, and Canadians already had theirs, it’ s a great time to make a special card.


We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia so I just when with a Thank you card which I guess is almost the same thing anyway Smile. For the front of my card I used Wild Rose Studio’s Bella with Daisy stamp. The base of my card is the Sizzix Pop N Cuts Square Card with Ornate Edge.


I love using my Sizzix Pop N Cuts dies designed by Karen Burniston and this was the perfect opportunity to use the Sizzix Pop N Cuts Thanks Insert. I have also used the Sizzix Thanks Set Sizzlits to create the pink layer on the Thanks pop up. The pink decorative pieces are  also on the Sizzix Pop N Cuts Square Card with Ornate Edge.

The sentiment on the lower part of the pop up is stamped using the Sizzix Sassy Labels & Stitched Frames Framelits.


Here is another look at the inside of my card.

What a fun fun Thank You card! I haven't played much with the phrase inserts, so I love seeing what other's do with them.
Love that background paper!
Cheers, Karen A
