More Happy Blessings!

Let me tell you! I am counting my happy blessings this week! I have so much to be grateful for, and with November and Thanksgiving looming on the horizon, my thoughts are directed toward deliberately taking notice and thanking God for all He provides!

Today's WT challenge was to use a crackled finish somewhere on our cards. I chose to use the cracked glass technique on a card that I had started and never finished for yesterday's sketch, which was based on a design by my fellow i {heart} paper DT member, Tracy! Of course, it was a bit harder to do since I had already attached the images to their mats using dimensionals, but I tried to make it work! The mats look a little more distressed than I had envisioned, but with all the distress inking, that seems okay! I just love this set and think that this little scarecrow is so cute. The shiny crackle finish really added alot to what seemed sorta plain before. I added a watercolored and embossed leaf just to dress it up a bit.

Stamps: Happy Blessings, Autumn Harvest
Paper: Whisper White, Really Rust, retired DP
Inks: Stazon Black, Tangerine Tango, Versamark
Accessories: Markers, sheer ribbons, clear EP

My package from i {heart} papers has not yet arrived, but some of the other artists have gotten theirs and have already started uploading gorgeous cards! Check them out! They're fabulous! I can hardly wait to get my goodies...I know they should be here soon because they've made it as far as Orange Park! I am hoping for today, but trying to be patient in case it is tomorrow!
