Hello everyone, today I am wrapping up my Thanksgiving cards.  I cannot believe it is this week already.  It has been unseasonably warm here in my neck of the woods, so that means the holidays are sneaking up on me more than usual!

My card today uses the Falling For You stamp set by Newton’s Nook.  The moment I saw this set, I had to have it.  I did mask off the very beginning of the sentiment so I could add my ‘Always Grateful For’ which I pulled from CTMH Always Grateful stamp set.

I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink on watercolor paper and used white embossing powder.  Then I smooshed Distress Inks in Peeled Paint, Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade and Walnut Stain, spritzed it liberally with water and smooshed away!  This is a messy but fun technique and one I use quite often…I thought I invented it, then I saw people use it on YouTube, so I guess it wasn’t such a unique idea.  HA!  Finally I spattered some more Spiced Marmalade.

The card base is Doodlebug Designs Flea Market line, I saw all the adorable critters and one of the papers has a sunflower pattern, so it was a must have.

The ‘Always Grateful For’ part of the card was gold embossed onto a strip of plain vellum, and wrapped along the top of the main sentiment.
