A Thanksgiving Card.....



Good Friday morning everyone!  I hope you are getting ready for the weekend!  This morning is the coldest one we have had all year and it has definitely put a little spring in my step!  We are in the lower 30's this morning.  With that being said, I have definitely turned my attentions toward Thanksgiving and Christmas! 

This morning I'm sharing a card I did for Heartfelt Creations and you can find all the specifics listed with it on the Heartfelt Creations blog this week.  I do want to say that I stamped the leaves and then dipped them into melted UTEE to make them look like glass.  I just love the way they turned out.  Once they had cooled, I used my heat gun and re-heated them to be able to shape them a little.  I just added a little curl to them to make them have dimension and not lay flat.  But you have to be really careful or you will definitely burn your fingers!  That is the voice of experience talking there!

Well I hope you have a wonderful weekend planned.  As for me....no big plans, just the usual.  When you get to be my age, you just go with the flow!   Take care and remember to take a moment out of your busy lives and "Breathe"!

Absolutely gorgeous, Glenda! I love how you did the leaves!

The leaves are gorgeous. I hope your fingers have healed. I am wondering if this could be done without a melting pot. It would be much slower...hmm. May have to give this a try. Thanks. As always, you have inspired.

This is just beautiful Glenda! Your mojo is going again! It was cold here all week - had 3 inches of snow earlier in the week, today it's about gone but our temps are 32 right now. It can only get better, right?
