STV's Center Stage Spotlight Group Hop - "Thankful" Challenge

Welcome to our "Thankful" challenge...

If you are hopping in order - you should have come from teammate Lori McAree's blog. If not, and you want to start at the beginning, then go HERE to start from STV.

My cards are using sets from Theresa Momber. She is absolutely a fav with a-MAZE-ing talent (-:

This first one is using the set "The Northwoods". Using direct to card method with GKD's Powder Blue card stock, Memento's Nautical Blue which is stamped over Ranger's Distress Paint - Pickett Fence...added stickles for some bling...

Second card is using Theresa's  "By the Sea" set with the sentiment from the Northwoods set (love that tiny "Thanks").  Colored water with Copic B23, sponged the sky, stamped bridge with Memento's Rich Cocoa, Card stock is GKD's Chocolate Kiss, SU Night of Navy, Designer paper is from GKD, spellbinder ovals, embossed little panel and added pearls with Viva Decor Pearl Pen - white, and ribbon is stash from GKD.
Hope you are enjoying the hop and inspired to join us! Your next hop is over to Kay's beautiful blog .

Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on Tuesday, November 26."

Hugs and have a blessed Thanksgiving...right around the corner!
