Corner of Thankful and Grateful

Good afternoon! Just popping by quickly this afternoon to share a card that has super extra special meaning to me. I first made this card for a couple of challenges (which I will link below) - and then liked it so well that I decided to submit it to the most recent Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine Submission call. Just got the sad news today that they are closing their doors. This was the last thing I submitted before finding out, and now it seems especially appropriate to express my feelings to all the editors and amazing people I have met through this magazine and the publication and submission process:

The first challenge I originally made this for was the Little Tangles color challenge:

As well as the current Cure for the Monday Blues Challenge:

And finally, I haven't had a chance to play along with Word Art Wednesdays lately, so I thought I would link up over there as well:

I used the fun Neat and Tangled set called On the Corner, and coordinating Metal Die - love how perfectly they work together! Added the sentiments with On The Corner Additions, and heat embossed everything. My pattern paper is from a MME paper pad, and I added lots of foam adhesive between layers, and a few Ocean Breeze Satin sequins to finish it off.

Again - I have so much I could say, but I am choosing this time to be thankful for all the joys this publication has brought me. Thank you for stretching and growing me, for making me want to be a better cardmaker (and showing me how!), and for all the amazing friends I have gained through this portion of my hobby. I am truly thankful and grateful...

  2. I hadn't heard about Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking closing down. How sad! Is everything going to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter???
    Your card is so awesome! I have the On the Corner stamp set-I need to get it out and use it.

  3. Such a fitting card as your last submission! So sad! Beautiful card though - I love that color combo!

  4. Oh, Heather - this is SO cute! I love the concept, the colors and the sweet sentiment. Thanks so much for sharing with us. It's always a special treat to have you play along with us.

  5. Really pretty card. Love how you organize your elements. Thanks for playing along at the Little Tangles Challenge and hope to see you again.

  6. I totally hear you on the sentiment, and I'm so glad you chose to share this card from your submissions and link it to my challenge. The colours and composition are perfect and I'm so happy it has the audience it deserves! Thanks so much for playing to find a Cure For The Monday Blues!
