Northwoods Thanksgiving

Good morning & thanks for stopping to visit. Today's card share was done with a  beautiful Northwoods stamp, borrowed from a friend. Northwoods stamps are among my favorite to use as they always give such a sharp clean impression and this company always has such classic themes. My friend & I both love Northwoods and are lucky to be able to swap & share our stamps, doubling the use of them.


- Northwoods image, colored with copics. It was a joy to color, very easy & fun to work with this beautiful scene. Die cut with a Sizzix circle die, as it was the appropriate size to cut, whereas the S/Binder small & large circle dies didn't quite fit.

- Mat was a Dylusion sprayed background that had similar colors to the image. Trimmed and used an MS corner punch. Added corner pearls. Matted again on black. Used some papers from 2 12x12 packs that complemented the image colors. Added a bit of DI Dusty Concord to smudge the edges of each paper, a leaf pattern ribbon to hide the join. Bob's yer Uncle, and it was done.

This will be a scheduled post, so once again, thanks for visiting, and have a wonderful day. Many hugs

This is one beautiful card Mary. Love the colours you have used. I have seen Northwoods stamps but they don't appear to be available here in UK. Shame.

This is a beautiful image...I can see why you like this stamp company.
Wonderful crisp autumn scene and colours.

Welcome to the Christmas Card Club...I meant to drop you an email telling you to put your name forward but was swamped with Little Mr P off school ill. We had to help out and take him for the extra days... and then I was away to my Mum's.

Just got home about an hour ago...blew a tire coming home on the Highway Through Hell but wasn't able to use the company they film on the tv show...we have coverage for the vehicle and they got to pick the towing company and sent them to us. It took 2 hours as we were in the middle of nowhere and now because we have 4 wheel drive, we need to buy 4 new tires! Uggggh!

It is not recommended to just replace the back 2 tires like you can with a 2 wheel drive vehicle. Of course they did not have our tires at the little town we were near...Luckily, they gave us a good used tire to get home with and we will buy new tires by the end of the week...gives DH time to source out the best price!
