~Bring Your Own Thankful~

Betsy's technique added mileage to my sentiment dies.

We are challenged this week to match sentiment stamps and dies together-which inspired me to look beyond the stamp set the dies were intended for.

I taped over the last line of this sentiment from PTI's Hello Sunshine and married it with the sentiment from PTI's Counting My Blessings Die set.

I stamped my leaves from Papertrey Ink's Rosie Posie in Jenni Bowlin Spice Tin.

Nasty colds going around out there folks...bust out the anti-bacterials!!!

Hope you stay healthy....

  1. Hi Marlena! This is just beautiful (as your cards always are), and I really hope you will stop by and link it up with us at Word Art Wednesday. Although our challenges are always Anything Goes, our theme this week is Thankfulness, and this would be perfect. Hope you're doing well, and that we will see you soon - it's also a double prize week. I always LOVE seeing your sweet cards shared in our challenges.
    Have a great, relaxing weekend.
