Simon Says.......Give Thanks!!

Today at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge our theme is to Give Thanks (or, Thanksgiving for those who haven't celebrated Thanksgiving yet!) Canadian Thanksgiving was last Monday, but American Thanksgiving is coming up on Nov. 25.

Also, we have been contacted by a lovely and very talented lady, Vera, who is organising a card drive to send Thanksgiving cards to the elderly who live alone or in nursing homes. The Design Team has sent all of their cards to Vera for the CARING HEARTS CARD DRIVE - we would love it if you would too!!!! Vera has also made a gorgeous card for the challenge which -Take a look!!

Please support ♥ CARING HEARTS CARD DRIVE ♥, in our effort to collect Thanksgiving & Christmas cards to be sent to the elderly that lives in nursing homes or care center. Going on till November 15, 2010. Details & prizes information can be found HERE.

As well as being eligible to enter for the prizes on the Card Drive Heidi will be giveing one lucky entrant a $25 shopping spree to her Simon Says Stamp store too :-) There are new products arriving every day so you will be spoilt for choice !! :-)

I chose the House Mouse image 'Pumpkin Pie' which I coloured in Copics. Not an easy image to colour - I think because there is so little colour in there. I cut the image out using the Spellbinders Labels 4.
I used the fabulous Basic Grey Green at Heart papers and the border is cut with an MS Deep Edge punch. The leaves I picked up in my local supermarket last year and the little pumpkin stickers, which I've attached to a Spellbinders Fancy tag, have been kicking around in my stash for ever. The ribbon is also from  my stash.

Right now I'm off looking at new laptops, the problem being they all have German Keyboards - should I wait and get one whilst I'm back in the UK, or will you all be able to interpret the Gobbledook I produce using the German keyboard I wonder!!

Julie said...

fab card Heather, must admit it never occurred to me German keyboards would be much different from ours.

Paula said...

Love that trellis with those colours. Foreign keyboards are a pain - I'd wait until I was back in UK if I were you. I had to use my Mum's Swedish keyboard for a while & it drove me crazy.
Love the leaf with that bow & the swirls behind the pumpkins.
