Many Thanks on Thanksgiving!

Hello everyone! Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US! I hope you have a wonderful day full of good food, laughter, and love. Today is Design Team Thursday at My Thoughts Exactly. I am in need of some thank you cards, so today I have just a few that I made with the Many Thanks stamp set. How fitting for Thanksgiving huh? There are a few pictures so I'll get right to them.

The first one shows a fun technique. Instead of stamping the entire words Thank You, the T and Y have been replaced with little embellishments. I used my shape studio to make the T and Y.
Here is a close up of the stamps and embellishments.
All the patterned paper is from October Afternoon as is the blue ribbon. The T and Y embellishments were made from the 12x12 version of the background paper.

The second card is very simple. I got the 'Wild Card' from my October afternoon loot and just had to use it on a card. I thought it went perfectly with the very simple sentiment.
The twine is from the Twinery.

The last card is again pretty simple and very girly :) As you may know I got my new baby Zing this past week and have been learning to use it. So I just had to have at least one cut in my post this week. I have been seeing a lot of negative cuts recently so I thought I'd give it a try.
Twine is from the Twinery and the paper is again from my October Afternoon loot. The little metal plate I think is from Michael's. Here is a close up of the sentiment.
I hate to waste paper so, I couldn't bring myself to throw away the cut out from the front. Yup, I put it on the inside and wrapped a little twine around the top. I was going for the tape measure draped around the mannequin look...

Well that's all I have for you today. Be sure to stop by Jen's blog to see what she made using the My Thoughts Exactly stamps. Also be sure to come back next Monday, the 28th, for the December release of My Thoughts Exactly stamps!! They are so awesome you don't want to miss it. I may have a sneak peak or two this weekend for you as well :)

Happy Turkey Day!
