Thankful for You!

I've been trying out a few card ideas for a swap I am in for Convention in July.  This was one of the designs that I rejected.  I like the card but didn't think it was "wow" enough!  I borrowed Zoo Review from my downline and friend, Debbie.  My card for this swap has to be something that relates to January.  When I picked the month of January, I thought it would be easy.  I could do a snowman and make a really cute card.  Well, that was before I saw the new SU catalog!  They retired my Snow Much Fun set and are going to wait until the Winter Mini catalog for the Christmas / winter stamp sets.  So, back to the drawing board!  I'll be sharing the card that made it later.
For this card, I made the base card Night of Navy.  The next layer is Crushed Curry that I ran through the Hexagon embossing folder.  The Sizzix die cut is from the Apothecary Accents framelits.  I sponged a little turquoise around the stamped images and Night of Navy on the edges of the framelit.  I used the new hostess set, Banner Greetings, for the sentiment.  I don't usually order the hostess sets because I know they won't carry over from year to year but I really like the Banner Greetings and I know they will come in handy a lot during the year.

I'm kinda bummed out.  We just finished watching Game 2 of the Stanley Cup hockey playoffs.  Pittsburgh (at HOME!) against Boston and they lost tonight 6-1!  Not to mention they lost Saturday night 3-0!  They better get their act together or they will be staying home.  I sure would like to see them in the Stanley Cup games.
