First of all, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! I know - I’ve been missing for a while. Well, I know you won’t believe it, but I’ve been sick…again! Almost exactly the same symptoms as last time….sore throat, headache and terrible coughing, except this time it was even worse than the last time. At any rate, I now think that I am on the mend and ready to get back to crafting which, after all, is the very best medicine!!!

Prior to getting sick, I was working on my projects for the Pazzles Design Team and got them finished right about the same time I got sick (on the 17th) and I’ve not done anything since then until this evening. I just made this card for the Splitcoast “Ways to Use It”, WT194 – “Giving Thanks”. My youngest son is the best son on the face of the Earth and I decided to dedicate this challenge to him!

Unfortunately, my photography skills were not good enough to pick up the “shimmer” of the papers I used for this card! The lacy “Thanks/Thank You” overlay was designed by me in my Pazzles Inspiration Studio software and then cut by my Pazzles (digital cutter). For the overlay, I used the following fonts: Present Script, Ballroom Tango Regular, Brody, Bean Sprout DNA, Hobo Std. and Lauren Script. Have I mentioned that “I love my Pazzles”? There are just no limits to what you can create and cut with it! I did the text using Photoshop CS3 using the "Freehand591 BT" font and then printed it using my Canon Pixma 530 inkjet printer.
Finished Card Size: A7/5"x7"


Papers: GA Pacific White CS (card base), “White Gold” Creative Collection Metallic
CS by Wausau & Target Blue Shimmer Finish CS
Tools: Pazzles Inspiration, Cuttlebug
Accessories: Long Rectangles Small & Long Scalloped Rectangles Small Nestabilities, The Robins Nest “Clear” Dew Drops
