The SmARTworks Smart Word challenge for this month is "gratitude." I decided to make a Thanksgiving card for the family (this will go to my in-laws), and to play with some new "toys."

I found this little leaf punch at the Target Dollar Spot, marked 50 percent off. And I got the bare tree stamp at half-priced day at a stamping consignment sale. (I'm also thankful for 50 percent off sales...)

Stamp is Posh Impressions, inked in Chestnut Roan fluid chalk ink. (Sentiment is computer generated). Main image is popped up on foam tape, and I accented it with a couple different sizes of brads.


  1. What a great card! It really is Thanksgiving-sy, and full of 'gratitude'. Thanks for entering November's challenge.

  2. What a great card!! I love all those leaves (and what a great bargain hunter you are!!). I also think the different sized brads are awesome!! Glad you played along with this month's smART Word challenge!!

  3. Beautiful card, Sandy! I love the little leaf punches, and you've got the perfect autumn color scheme going on!

  4. This is lovely! So much dimension with the punched leaves and the brads. Thanks for playing along with us! :)


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
