Back with the GIRLS! S2G!

Happy Thursday and I am posting for the Shirley's 2 Girls dt again!  What a great time to get back to these ADORABLE images!  With Fall in full swing and Thanksgiving JUST A FEW WEEKS AWAY, S2G and the dt wanted to do a little more then just share our weekly inspiration projects.  So, this week we are giving thanks to all of the blog participants and visitors.  Soooooo...START the Thanksgiving hop. You travel to each DT's blog to view her project for this week's challenge- (there will be a bonus here cuz the girls are sharing tips, tricks and tutorials along the way) :)  and there is a grand prize  (of course) and HIDDEN candy along the way! Just leave a comment on your way telling us WHAT you are thankful for!
Here is my card with the image "note of thanks".  I used BG jovial dp and colored  it with Copics , cut it out and popped it up. I am always in need of "thank yous" after the holidays and this will be one!   The leaves are from a Prima Calypso tin- Christmas flowers and leaves. My favorite "tip" to share is one I learned from a Copic dt sister-  when u cut out your image after coloring - take a black marker (NOT a copic) and go around the image to cover any flaws in your cutting!  This makes such a dramatic difference!  Love it! NOW...WANT to join us ??  Make a project using the word "thanks"! Link to the S2G blog and dont forget to start hopping!  If you came here via GINA you are in the right place!  Next stop is JUDY!  Feeling lost? Start at the blog for the full list!  Hey- dont forget to TELL ME WHAT YOU ARE THANKFUL FOR! TFL!

a stunning card! Love this digi stamp because it reminds me of younger years sitting and writing letters to my grandparents and sipping hot chocolate. I am thankful for the years I had to share with my grandparents to create loving memories I will cherish forever.
