Alphabet Challenge blog - Letter G - Give Thanks

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

The weekend is here. This weekend our daughter is home. She has a hairdressers appointment and her dress is coming back from being altered. Everything is getting close and exciting. My husband and I are hoping to collect our new glasses which we ordered two weeks ago. I have managed to get glasses to match my outfit.

The new challenge starts today on the Alphabet Challenge blog the letter is G and the theme is Give Thanks. This will be my last post for the Alphabet Challenge blog as I have decided to step down from the team. I have enjoyed my time with them but now it is time to move on. I wish them all the best for the future. You never know I might go in for some of the challenges.

I like making Thank You cards. They are always useful to have in your stash.

I used an embossing folder the make the background. I used some Tonic dies to cut an aperture and an inner frame. Behind the aperture I used the Bed of Roses embossing folder by Creative Expression. 

This rose stamp came free with a magazine some time ago I now can't remember which one. I coloured it with my Stampin Up water colour pencils and I used a blender pen to move the colours around. 

This thank you die is floral but I have used it much more with the floral elements removed. 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
