HIMCR #171 - Any Holiday

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!

Can you believe it is almost the end of October already?
And that Thanksgiving is just right around the corner, 
let alone Christmas?

I know I can't . . . where did the time go???

Well, speaking of holidays . . .

Since it is Saturday once again, it means it's time for a new challenge over at Hiding In My Craft Room and this week's theme is "Any Holiday"!!! 

Our sponsor is A Day for Daisies.

The giveaway is a $12 gift certificate to A Day for Daisies!!!

So since it is getting close to Thanksgiving here in the U.S., I decided to use a digi image called "A Butterfly Harvest" from A Day for Daisies. And since I didn't want to take away from the image by using patterned paper but didn't want the "plainness" of regular solid colored cardstock, I decided to use my papers from PaperTemptress.  PaperTemptress has the best selection of specialty and textured papers.  Here's how it turned out:

Gold & Dark Chocolate Mica/Metallic papers from PaperTemptress
misc. gems

For the sentiment on this card, I used MSWord and typed "GIVE" in "Impact" font and printed ont my Iridescent Cryogen paper. And then stamped "thanks" which was part of a clear stamp I had cut apart that originally said "thanks for everything". Put all the layers together . . . and VOILA! I was done. 

Remember, you have one week (till 2am PST Nov. 1st) to get your projects in.  I can't wait to see what type of  "holiday" projects everyone is inspired to make this week.

Till the next time I'm up in the night.
