November Stamp Club Theme Card

Well hello crafters,
Hope everyone is staying warm. As I write this, it's 12° outside - too cold for the first part of November IMHO. (I am in the Greater Cincinnati area.)

Tonight was the monthly stamp club meeting and the theme card was "Just Say Thanks".

For my theme card, I  used a Bugaboo image and for the sentiment I used a really old stamp that contains the alphabet and I then punched the letters out and placed them above the image.

I fussy cut the image and there was some white space left and I felt it detracted from the image and the card. So, I found a gray spectrum noir alcohol marker that matched up pretty well with the gray in the DP so I colored in all the white space and it matched up nicely. However this photo shows that gray marker kind of blue, but on the card it is more gray.

We had a wonderful time and planned our Christmas get together for next month. I have calls to make to get a reservation for  the 7 of us at a restaurant for our December meeting and we have 3 places on our list. (Some places will not take reservations, so I have 3 places, in order of preference, and hopefully one of these 3 will take reservations.)

Stamps:  Rubber Stamp - Circle Framed Alphabet - Great Impressions (still available on their site), Digital Bugaboo - Pumpkins and Leaves
Paper/Card Stock
: Orange CS, Black CS, White CS DP
Ink: Memento - Tangelo
Accessories: Spectrum Noir Markers, Small Circle Punch

We always have a challenge card to make as well, and I will share that one with you on Friday. So please stop back to check it one out. A hint - if you like CAS,  this one might be right up your alley. 

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping in today.  Hope you have a great week and stay warm.
