Thanksgiving Wishes

It's been a crazy, fun, busy, happy, long weekend and it's drawing to a close. Good thing too 'cuz I'm just about dead on my feet. It's so wonderful seeing family again after more than a year, and weddings are always fun. So roll that all in all into a long holiday weekend, and you have a fantabulous several days! I was sorry to see everyone go, but that gave me a chance for a little stamping! This past week I've been putting together the projects my 'church ladies' will be making for our soldiers and actually finished planning and packaging 2 more projects tonight. I think that makes 6 in all that we'll be stamping tomorrow night. That is unless I have a quiet day tomorrow and can sneak downstairs during my sweet grandbaby's nap time. We'll see..... But I thought I'd quickly share with y'all one of tomorrow's projects. It's sort of new and old all mixed in together.
Stamps: Autumn Days, Woodgrain, and Seasonal Sentiments (new mini)
Cardstock: Mellow Moss (retired), Soft Suede, and Naturals Ivory with Wanted DSP (retired)
Ink: Mellow Moss (retired) and Soft Suede
Accessories: Sponge Dauber, Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon, and HodgePodge Hardware clip
I love finding ways to use up my retired stash of supplies. There's certainly nothing wrong with them, and honestly, Mellow Moss is one of my favorite colors. I've had a hard time not reaching for it many times. But, when making cards for our soldiers, I don't think they much care whether a ribbon or cardstock is retired or not. As long as they have a hand-made card to send home their love and caring, well, that's all that matters in my book.
So I hope you don't mind too much that there are days when I share retired items. And who knows, maybe you have those very same items sitting tucked away on a shelf and this will give you an idea to use.
Hope your night is quiet and God gives you restful sleep, and then you're ready and rarin' to go first thing in the morning. Have a great day tomorrow!

this is fabulous. I love the colors, the softness of the card and the woodgrain background. I know your church ladies will love making this card for the troops.
