Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #199 - Thankful!

Hello again sweet visitors and welcome to my little creative space.

It's time for another Challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers.  
The Challenge Theme is 'Thankful' and  Maike is our Host this time.  
As usual, anything you care to make is fine .. a card, a layout, a canvas, home decor piece ..  it doesn't matter as long as it has a Thankful Theme.  

Me, I'm mostly into cards and, as I needed one of the masculine persuasion, this is what I created for my DT contribution.
 The papers are mainly from Kaisercraft with just the ruler strip on the side being from Prima.
 The tags are pre-made ones from Franceville but the clock flairs are hand made.
 I found some free printable ones on the net ages ago so, I simply printed them, cut them out and covered them with Glossy Accents.   It took a while for the big one to dry but I like that extra shine so it was worth the wait.
 The chippie is from 2Crafty Chipboard.  I gave it some colour by swiping it with Versacolor Stamp Pads in Bronze and Lapislazuli.
 The greeting was also simply printed out and mounted on a Spellbinders die cut which I found floating around my workbench.

 Et Voila!!
Sincerely hoping I have inspired you to join in with the Challenge.

For more inspiration, pop on over to the Crafty Cardmakers Blog and take a peek at the fabulous creation by my Teamies.  I am sure they will inspire you to join in the fun.   Simply follow the link below to check it out and to link up your entry.

  7. Wow Margaret, another card of yours I've bookmarked for inspiration! This is fantastic! I am always so blown away by your layering and the wonderful different elements you use in your layers! Rulers and tags and clocks, I love it! The chipboard piece looks amazing with the aqua and bronze tones. I love that sentiment banner die cut, I think I own that one and I never use it! It may be time to pull it out because it looks so great as a topper! Another fabulous masculine creation my friend!

    So much rain here. I love the rain, but it makes it difficult to mush about in the forest with camera equipment! I sure hope it's a sign that we will get lots of precipitation this winter too, wouldn't that be great! lol. Your weather must be getting warmer and warmer every day! sending hugs :)
