When we Give Thanks we think of Thanksgiving Day which is a national holiday celebrated in Canada, the United States, some of the Caribbean islands, and Liberia. It began as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Similarly named festival holidays occur in Germany and Japan. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States, and around the same part of the year in other places. Although Thanksgiving has historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, it has long been celebrated as a secular holiday as well. So this year it will be November 23rd here in Australia.
Australians don’t celebrate Thanksgiving but it is a great time to be thankful for all that Spring and Summer bring us as well as for family, friendships and everything else we have. So, today’s card is inspired by Giving Thanks.
This card is made with the Double Stamping Card and the colours I’ve used are Dapper Denim and Lemon Lime Twist. It’s a great set to use to Give Thanks. You know, I’ve never been a ‘green’ person and I didn’t like this colour when it came out however I can tell you now I use it so much. I stamped off with the Dapper Denim with the larger image and then full strength with the smaller image. The leaves were stamped full strength in lemon Lime Twist for both images.
Remember a couple of weeks ago I did a video using Painted Harvest? I gave you a tip on how to stamp the insert and the envelope at the same time. That’s what I did here. It saves time and works well with these images.
So this card is part of my projects for the Holidays. I usually don’t do Halloween as it’s not big here in Australia and I don’t really believe in it. However, using stamp sets I already have I will bring you a couple of ideas for Halloween shortly. I’ll do more Give Thanks cards too.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.
Remember, your creativeness is only limited by your imagination. Keep smiling and until next we share…
