I tried to resist this set with it's matching dies, but after seeing so many beautiful cards, I decided I had to have them.
Of course, having seen so many beautiful cards I was apprehensive about coming up with anything unique with them, but this is one of those sets that is SO versatile that you really can't go wrong with it.
I was inspired by the November page in my latest version of my Coaster Calendar kit to make this card using my favorite DSP in this catalog, Flashback. Lookie:
GOJUS!!! (YILM!) More views:
I love the look of the 7/8" cotton ribbon with this, pinked with pinking shears, which is something I have been using a lot on my ribbon lately!
I love the Native American feel of the card, since Native Americans were a big part of the first Thanksgiving, and we should be thankful they didn't just let the pilgrims starve. Somewhere back in my ancestry, legend has it that there is a Cherokee princess, at least according to my grandmother's research. She was an Avery, and her ancestors came over in the mid 17th century. Compared to those ancestors, the rest of my ancestors were pretty much Johnny-Come-Latelys! I am, however, aware that the legend of the "Cherokee princess" in one's ancestry is pretty common and probably isn't true, but I would like to think it was.
Speaking of Coaster Calendar kits, look what just arrived!
I'm going to be a very busy person this weekend assembling kits! I bought enough supplies for 18 kits, and I still have some available, so head on over to the kit store to order yours today!
