giving thanks

in honor of thanksgiving having been celebrated yesterday in canada, and only just over a month away here in the states, we are feeling especially thankful this week at shopping our stash. so we'd like to see cards that are either thanksgiving-themed OR, if you prefer, an ordinary thank you card will work. i went with the latter:

patterned paper: mme, basic grey, plus scraps of plain white; kraft cardstock: the paper cut; ephemera: the girls' paperie; diecut heart: k and co; chipboard letters: prima; florals: petaloo; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, gluedots

this card is chock full of absolutely ancient stash items! the floral chipboard letters for my youngest niece's 4th or 5th birthday (which... impossibly... is like 9 years ago!); the reproduction paris ephemera is from a packet i bought at an expo before we lived in this house (so... 5+ years on that?!); the 6x6 paper was a birthday gift last year or the year before; the velvet florals were leftover from an xmas card class in 2017 or 2016. i think the newest thing on this card is the kraft base, which was the last of a packet from this past winter. i love using up old stuff... especially when it's pretty things that i still really like! ♥

lots more inspiration is awaiting you at SOS, where i'm sure you will be as thankful for the inspiration as i am! 


  1. Just love this sweet card! Those letters are fabulous-- so bold and stealing the show! 🇫🇷

  2. Lauren, one of the details on your beautiful card that jumped at me was that amazing picture of the Eiffel Tower, then the fabulous letters, WOW!!
