Start Each Day With A Grateful Heart!

Welcome! I absolutely love this sentiment -- Start each day with a grateful heart.  It is a wonderful reminder for each of us, especially during this month of November with Thanksgiving just around the corner.  Our square card shown here is  stamped with New England Ivy and colored with Watercolor Colored Pencils.  

To add a touch of sparkle, I used  my Clear Shimmer Brush and for the finishing touch, Bitty Sparkles.  

I've been giving this stamp a workout as I make cards for friends and family, as well as a page for my ongoing Words of Wisdom mini album.  I look forward to incorporating it into family scrapbook pages as well.  It will also be one of my favorites featured at my upcoming November Seasonal Card Buffet.  💗

For our second card, I stamped with Nutmeg, one of the colors in the newly redesigned Basics Palette.  So fresh!  Again, I enjoyed coloring the design with Watercolor Colored Pencils.  For a touch of sparkle, the Gold Shimmer Brush and Gold Glitter Gems were used here to complement the Gold Glitter Paper.  

I used papers from the Basic and Enchantment Fundamentals paper packs  and coordinating cardstock.  Through November, ALL of the Fundamental Bundles (Paper Pack, Ribbon and Complements) are 40% off!  If you are only wanting paper, ribbons, OR complements from the Fundamentals Collection, they are 30% off.  This is an incredible discount, so if you are interested in any type of papercrafting, now is the time to stock up for yourself or for gift giving.  They are all available at  

A quick note before I go today, the Stamp of the Month, "Through the Year" can be yours for only $5 during November with a qualifying purchase.  Each month is written in an upbeat font, and the 16 icon stamps are simply delightful!  Wonderful for planners, calendars, job/lesson charts, papers, cards, and on and on!  A little hint -- it will be great with the beautiful Calendar Workshop that will be available in December. 😉

All materials used (and so much more) are available from me at

Until next time --
