What are YOU thankful for?

It's the season of Thanks, and Shelli Gardner (of Stampin' Up!) has a contest on her blog that asks us to craft something that documents what we are thankful for. You can visit Shelli's blog HERE.

I was already working on a little project, so I'm going to enter it in the contest.

As you know, I did my first craft fair in my new neighborhood a couple of weekends ago. Not only did I do great selling my hand-stamped items, but I sold quite a bit of SU! products and made a lot of new customer contacts. I had a door prize, and I'm sending every single person who entered a little mini card, plus a letter from me thanking them for visiting my booth and giving them my SU! contact information. (Visit my SU! blog by clicking the link on the right if you've never done it!)

So, one of the things I'm thankful for is my customers! Not only are they loyal customers, they are a great source of inspirataion and creativity. The theme of my blog is "sharing the joy of creativity with others," and my customers and crafty friends (both local and the many Bloggy pals) allow me to do just that. Thank you!

Here are the little cards I made for all of them (118 of them, btw!). I left them blank inside so they could use them as they wish, and I included the little 3x3 envelopes. The sentiment is from the hostess set, Window Dressing - it's a level 3 hostess set and absolutely adorable!



Materials (all SU! unless otherwise mentioned)

Card stock: Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant , scraps of Only Orange, Really Rust, Tangerine Tango, and Pumpkin Pie (not all shown)
Stamps: Window Dressing
(sentiment)
Ink: Old Olive, Craft White
Other: Small Oval Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Old Olive 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, sponge, Stampin' Dimensionals, 2-way Glue
