Papercraft Star Challenge #121


How's everything?  Things here are going much better, and I finally feel like my stress level is going down, personal wise.  Work is crazy as my supervisor is on vacation until the 20th, and we're super busy.  I've never missed someone at work as much as I miss her. lol  I'm glad she's vacationing though, she rarely takes time off, for anything.  Can you believe we're at mid November already?  I really wish it would slow down.  I'm running out of time to get everything I need to do done. lol  Anyway, enough babbling, I'll share my crafty project with you.

The theme at Papercraft Star this week is: Thanks/Thanksgiving!

I love this photo, but as usual, the photos are always use if you choose.  This week, I went a different direction, but still created a thank you card.  Check it!

I colored this butterfly with my Copics, a while ago, while on one of my flights to my moms.  By the way, it's interesting how many times you have to explain what Copics are to the people who see you with them in the airport.  Fortunately, they travel well, aren't a threat, and keep me occupied. lol  Anyway, there is no patterned paper on this card, at all.  It's distress inks, stamping and embossing.  I was hoping I could pull off the look I had for my card in my head, and think I did ok.  I'm happy with it anyway.  Fortunately for me, I was able to combine the following challenges in my card today.

Sketch For You To Try - November Sketch
Card Makin Mama's - Thanksgiving/Thank You
Crafty Catz #158 - Anything Goes
Our Creative Corner - Make Your Own Background   
Catered Crop - Lace
Corrosive Challenge #162 - Flutter By
Glitter and Sparkle #6 - Things With Wings
Cupcake Inspirations #186 - Photo Inspiration (my colors fit perfectly, lucky me!)
Pile It On #46 - Lets Be Thankful
Scrappy Frogs - Give Thanks
Sentimental Sundays #128 - Thanks/Thanksgiving

The lovely designers at PCS have created more gorgeous projects for you today.  I am hoping you'll get to check them out.  They're nothing short of spectacular.

Have a wonderful day!
