Thankful For...Friends

What are you thankful for? That's the question we're answering for our theme at The Shabby Tea Room this week. We have a fabulous sponsor with great prize from Stamp Simply Ribbon Store! I hope you will join us and create something you are thankful for this week!

Of course I am thankful for my family, but today I am focussing on being thankful for FRIENDS! I have so many different types of friends as I'm sure you do too...and I am very thankful for all of them. Whether it be close friends, stampy friends, bloggy friends, neighbors, work friends, school parent name it...I am blessed to be surrounded by people who are caring, funny, generous and thoughtful!

Today, I used my newest stamp set from JustRite called Friendship Nested Sentiments and Verse along with the border from the Give Thanks Nested Frames set. I stamped them with ColorBox Dark Brown and colored the leaves with fall-colored Copics and filled in the dots with a navy blue Copic. My leaves are from Heartfelt Creations and they are also colored with Copics and cut out.

The backgound paper is stamped with JustRite's Applique 2" square set creating my own designer paper on this great pearly copper cardstock. I added some festive gold ribbon and a matching button tied with embroidery floss. I used the sketch from Waltzing Mouse this week!
