Feathery Thanks: PPA222, MOJO385 & LIM192

Hello, my Happy Stampers! Here we are back to another Monday, the first of October! In NY it was a rainy and dreary day on Saturday, but Sunday the sun came out and my DD and I attended a fabulous bead show. Beading is just one of another of my endless list of hobbies. I went to a bead show and made jewelry on Sunday, today (Monday) I have a stamp class at my house, and Tuesday I am going to Nancy's crochet class. My mind and my Pinterest boards are jumbled with crafts! And recipes! Love them all! Need more time! 

Anyway, is there a card here, you ask? Yes! It features the Four Feathers and Lots of Thanks Stamp Sets. I'm playing along with the delicious color challenge at Pals Paper Arts and the Autumn's Bounty challenge at Simply Less is More. I'm a day late for the challenge at Mojo Monday but would like to acknowledge that I used their sketch. It was a busy weekend...

Yumm... love these feathers. Two were heat embossed with Early Espresso and Calypso Coral Embossing Powders, the other simply stamped with So Saffron Ink.

This is so cute, Sandy! I've developed a bit of a feather fetish lately so I'll file this idea away,if you don't mind. I love the Vintage Button with them too. It's fun to hear about your other hobbies as well. Thanks for joining us at the Pals Paper Arts this week.

This is beautiful! Love how you combined everything! And just looking at beads makes me nervous! I wouldn't have the patience :)

Beads get me nervous too! I find I am most relaxed when I am out of the house. There is always something to do here. Looking fwd to making cards tonight!! This card is very nice. I especially like the DSP with the border.
