Lawnscaping Challenge #142: Give Thanks sponsored by Lawn Fawn

 

Welcome back to another challenge from Lawnscaping! This challenge is to create a thank you themed/give thanks project. What better time than November to do this, right? Although having thank you cards in your stash is ALWAYS a great idea.   

Our sponsor for this challenge is the lovely...
 

I've been anxious to use these little mice for a while now, so it seemed perfect for this challenge and this time of year, right?!


I mean, aren't they the cutest?! 


I used the cheese in the background with Versamark and some clear embossing
powder so the focus didn't take away from the pretty leaves and mice. 



The leaves tucked behind them gave this a nice pop of color without overwhelming the little couple right there giving thanks.

Come on over and check out the challenge rules and the other amazing design team inspiration and enter your project. Have fun with it!

Now on to my project for this challenge! 

I decided to start making some of my holiday cards that I give to loved ones, friends, my kids teachers and this year, my Cub Scout den families. I love using my handmade cards for this reason, so I try to craft throughout the year so I have a nice variety by the time it's ready to send them or hand them out. 


Isn't that deer just too cute?! I kept the layout, you guessed it, clean and simple! There's something satisfying about white space to me. It's the designer that still lives inside my brain. I can't help it.


I had cut out the hat and used some foam adhesive to give it dimension and make it pop up off his head. 


I hope you're inspired and enjoy this CAS challenge as much as I have! It's my absolute favorite challenge we have done. Get crafting and enter over at the Lawnscaping Challenge blog!
