Thank You with FCD

It is time to blog hop with FCD!

This month's theme is "Thank You"

We were asked to create any piece of that focused on this theme.


*********************************

The official start time of this Hop is Friday, November 20, 2009 at 8:00 AM (EST).

If you arrived early, please be patient as all the links may not be live yet.


There are so many things one can be thankful for and I am thankful for my friends :) I happened to be thinking of one in particular when I sat down to make this card and I don't think I can ever tell her enough how thankful I am for her friendship :)

This is the inside of the card:

and here is the front...

this gorgeous Debbie Mumm paper went perfectly with the Fall Quotes and Tumbling Scarecrow images that I used. After stamping the apple and the acorn I colored them and used my Versamarker pen and clear embossing powder to give some glossiness and depth to them. The ribbon is a pretty one from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the paper is from Paper Temptress Pop Tones it is called Gumdrop Green.

Sorry it is a tad blurry I had to use the scanner as I am still cameraless and since it has a little depth it doesn't sit flush on the scanner screen.
While I was thinking of Thank Yous I knew I wanted to make a couple for sending after the holiday's too so when I saw this color combo at the Color Throwdown #69 and this sketch from Truly Scrumptious Sketch 20 I wanted to give combining them a try. Ok plus I just wanted to play with my Christmas stamps ~ I admit it! I grabbed my Holly Jolly Christmas set and using the Jack In the box and the cool yo-yo I made this Thank You card.


I hope you enjoyed my Thank You cards...I can't wait to see what everyone else did! Remember this is a “circular blog hop” where the beginning is wherever you start!! You will know you are at the end of your blog hop when you’ve come back to the blog you’ve started from!

(It’s not a huge circle…so it should be easy to remember where you started.)


Blog Candy?!?!

We have a surprise for you all!

Not only will Pamela have an overall winner for this hop but

so will EVERY ONE OF THE DESIGNERS! OMGoodness!


It is like an early Christmas present for yourself! Same rules to get it though you can't win if you don't leave a comment. I think that everyone has a different candy available so you have to leave comments on EVERYONE'S posts to be entered into their drawing. Winners will be announced on Monday night at 8 PM (or as soon after that as the Designer can post it up...remember we are all in different time zones too LOL!)


Here is the set I am giving away!



It is called Christmas Punch Art - Making a List.

**To find out if you’ve won… you will be contacted via e-mail (so be sure to leave it with your comment.) and you can also find out on the blogs after the blog hop ends on Mon, November 23, 2009 at 8:00 PM (EST).**


Now, to continue the circle, you will need to hop on over to Libby

and keep going until you’ve come back to where you’ve started!


Be sure and tell Libby I said GOBBLE GOBBLE too LOL!
!

Thanks so much for playing along with us and we hope you have a great time!


hugs,



P.S. Please note that FireCracker Designs by Pamela will be closing on December 15, 2009 for the holidays. Place your orders before then! She'll see you then again after the holidays are over.
