About Moi

I was born in June 1981, I'm a hearing impaired paper-crafter who loves all things crafty. I sew, although I'm still very much a novice at sewing. I bake and cook hopefully all kinds of delicious treats. I have a huge passion for photography and the camera {yes I'm old school I still use an actual camera} is never far from me. I also love creative writing from making up sentiments/verses for my cards and other paper-craft projects to penning some fiction. I am an avid reader and I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

Thanksgiving at One Stitch at a Time

It is a Thanksgiving challenge over at http://onestitchatatimechallenge.blogspot.co.uk/

Whatever you want to give thanks for is acceptable and for me this was friendship.  I sent this special card to a good friend who is always there for me.

I printed the pumpkin image multiple times and stacked them on a cake stand, a partial stamp that should have had a cake on it.  I added some leaves for the natural look.

For the inside of the card I enlarged and printed the pumpkin again, then "carved" the words Thanks Giving into and folded the card so it "popped" out.

My quote is a Ralph Waldo Emmerson one about giving thanks.

For each new morning with it's light
For rest and shelter of the night
For healthy and food
For love and friends,
For everything thy goodness sends.
For flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
For song of bird, for hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in Heaven we thank thee!
Ralph Waldo Emmerson
