Ending the week with Day of Gratitude

One of my friends (Thanks, S) posted a quote on her Facebook page last week:

“What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?”

It’s been popping in and out of my mind ever since, so I thought a gratitude card would be a good ending to the week.


All Stampin' Up!: Day of Gratitude stamp set; Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, So Saffron inks;
Not Quite Navy Cardstock; Well Worn DSP; Decorative Label and XL Oval Punches;
White Bakers' Twine; Wood Sheets

I received the Day of Gratitude stamp set last October at the Stampin’ Up! regional conference in Portland, OR. I used it quite a lot, then it got put on the bottom rack of stamps as I started designing holiday cards. When we moved this summer, it was, as always, kind of like Christmas when I started unpacking my craft room. I tend to forget about stamp sets then I’m reminded how much I like them when I see them again. I’m like a three-year-old that way!

I really like the way our classic inks look on the wood sheets. The sheets can be used in the Big Shot but here I just cut them with my paper trimmer. I wanted Early Espresso twine, so I pressed white baker’s twine into the Early Espresso ink pad and let it dry for a few minutes (while I picked up hooligans from the bus). Combining the two punches gives a nice layered focal point without much effort, and I’m all about that!

Now I’m off to the pumpkin patch/corn maze with my kindergarten blessing…and those of 21 other parents. Enjoy your weekend (if that’s what you choose to do)!
