Great Impressions Stamps Release Week

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life blog. Well we had another frost on Wednesday but the stuff my hubby wants to save for another week or so he covered. The tomato plants are in that category. We have lots of green tomatoes on the stalks. Not too much longer and we will be having lots of cold nights. Although for Thursday night the temps are in the 40's so no covering tonight.

Onto my card for today. This one is from a new release from Great Impressions Stamps. The sentiment The sentiment is "new day" - E770. Don't you just love the wording? I placed it inside the "sunflower tag" - H231. I thinks this is a perfect card for Thanksgiving. Also one that would be easy to make 4 or 5 quickly.

Here are some card details: My card base is Stampin-Up's chocolate chip cardstock and then I layered peach parfait and some patterned paper from Basic Grey's "Indian Summer " collection.

I used Stampin-Up's cajun craze ink on the sunflower tag & sentiment and used a peach parfait marker for the flowers.

On the rectangle panel, I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then added a flag pennant. This was cut from a Spellbinders die. To complete the card I punched 3 small
circles from cajun craze cardstock.

My layout is this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch #169
