Thanksgiving is just around the corner and my card today would be perfect to send to friends and family members to celebrate this year. We might not be able to get together in person as we have in the past so a beautiful card will show them they are in our thoughts.

Just Saying Hello with Tasteful Touches

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I love to design my cards but there are times when I kinda draw a blank, either nothing comes to mind or too much comes to mind and I feel a bit overwhelmed. The Stampin’ UP! catalogs show us all the wonderful products available but did you know it is also a book of ideas? In fact when I first came across Stampin’ UP! in 2006 it was called an ‘Idea Book’ (and I still have that catalog in my stash!)

All that being said – I found today’s card tucked into those pages, I changed it a tiny bit (of course) but it is very close 🙂

You will have either arrived from Jo’s  post or starting here ~ either way WELCOME.  This month are theme is ‘Travel’   ~ well in the current situation  this is defiantly a bit of a challenge – but here goes ……

I will admit I was struggling with this one as I don’t have any stamp sets etc that are ‘travel’ themed.  I was seeking inspiration and my eye fell on one of the sheets of 12 x 12 in the World of Good Designer Series Paper which has a map of the US and Canada…. and there it was – Alaska!
