Little House in the Big Woods

Hi there stampers and a happy Wednesday to all!

Were you a Laura Ingalls Wilder fan when you were young?  Did you read all the "Little House" books as fast as you could?  I loved them and so did my girls.  You might be wondering why I'm mentioning these books and what possible connection there could be with stamping.  Well, just take a look at today's card and you'll see...

There it is... the little house in the big woods!  I used two different stamp sets to make this card.  The house is from Holiday Home and the trees are from White Christmas.... both sets are in the holiday catalog.  The greeting is from the ever-popular Teeny Tiny Wishes, which can be found on page 18 of the annual catalog.  I stamped the house in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Hello Honey card stock and then cut it out with the matching framelit die.  The leaves are stamped in Hello Honey, Tangerine Tango, and Crushed Curry.
The Early Espresso panel was textured with the Woodgrain embossing folder.  The Hello Honey ribbon is accented with a wooden leaf from the Autumn Wooden Elements set on page 46 of the holiday catalog.  
Don't you have some far-away friends and relatives who'd love getting a card like this from you, letting you know that you're thinking of them on Thanksgiving?  Thanksgiving is the perfect time to reach out with a loving and thoughtful gesture.  In fact, every day is the perfect time to reach out with a loving and thoughtful gesture... no need to wait for a holiday!  Let's all resolve to send more cards.  We can make the world a happier place, one card at a time!
Hope your week is going well!  Around here we're excited for a visit from the Seattle gang!  Haven't seen those grandchildren for a while and we are looking forward to a fun weekend!  Please come back on Friday for more stamping inspiration.
Hugs and happiness,
