Anything Goes this week at FOSTV (Mark's Finest Papers) for Challenge #100

You are getting a sneak peak at another of the sentiments, "You Are In My Prayers",  on the
 Lots of Words 2013 Stamp Set 
which will be released in December of 2013.

Unfortunately, I never seem to have enough sympathy and/or cards of encouragement on hand so I've decided to take advantage of this wonderful new set and make up several.

If you are travelling for the Thanksgiving holiday this week, I wish you safe travels.  

I'm curious if anyone noticed that I attached my Designer Paper upside down on my card base!

Love To Create wants you to use 3 of your favorite embellishments for their challenge this week.

I've used Lace, Ribbon and Rhinestones!!!

This is, sadly, my last post as a DT for Love To Create.  I have fulfilled my term and have decided to take a little break, especially through the holidays, to re-group a little bit.  You will still be seeing my creativity periodically and I am hoping the the extra time I'm gaining will allow me to work on some altered art/re-use projects that have been formulating in my idea center and in my sketch book.

  Hopefully you will follow along and see what creations find themselves in the studio in the near future.

This digital image I'm using today is from one of our very generous sponsors, 
Wings and Willows
It's called Save The Date
and you can purchase it here.

I'm curious if anyone noticed that I taped my designer paper upside down on my card base!

We are starting a waiting list for 2014.

QKR is all about Giving Thanks

Please join in the new challenge this week at QKR.

  The theme for #65 is "Give Thanks".

I've used the Happy Thanksgiving digital (#3815) for my inspiration card for you this week.  

 It's pretty basic and a really Clean and Simple card.  
The sentiment is layered four times, using a Spellbinder's Nestabilities A2 (A) and A2 (B) dies and
 Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page (Laurel Leaf) set.

This card would be a really easy one to reproduce quickly if you desired.
  I'm kind of a one design type of girl though and prefer each of my creations to be somewhat different. 
 I only mass produce if I am designing an event.  
Other than that it is pretty much one of a kind creations for me.

I have a tendency to leave the insides of my card blank 
(no sentiment)
 since I love to include personal messages to the people I send them to.  

For full details on the designers' cards you can click on their name which is linked to their blogs! We love to hear from you, so you are always welcome to visit, we would love to receive your comments!

To play along with us, please post a direct link to the card/project on your blog using inlinkz and link back to our challenge from your blog!

....just do what you love and believe in.....

My inspiration project for you this week for
was made using the 
Polished Lackluster Full Size Printable Journal Papers.

Every bit of paper in this card with the exception of the leaves and the card base itself is made from these beautiful papers.  
The color is just gorgeous and I love the sentiments and little add on's that come with this kit.
I find myself using these papers for so many of my cards and altered art projects.
