Thankful with Sentimental Sundays

I am going to keep this post short and sweet. It is the Memorial Day holiday weekend here in the United States and I am sure you have fun things planned

This week's theme on the Sentimental Sundays Challenge blog is "Thankful". I decided to make a card for my daughter's teacher. I broke out my brand new pad of Thrift Shop paper from October Afternoon. I LOVE this paper. (I was excited to hear that Archivers is going to start carrying October Afternoon! Woohoo!)

I was inspired to pair up the sunny yellow paper with the black & white polka dot paper after seeing this photo for the EtsyInspired Challenge.

I also prettied up the inside.

Please join us and share your "Thankful" cards for a chance to win some wonderful digital sentiments from Raindrop Echo Designs. Stop by the Sentimental Sundays blog to see the rest of the inspiration from the DT and to download this week's free sentiments.

Take a moment to remember our fallen heroes this weekend. If you would like to make a card thanking our men and women in the armed forces, Ann from Raindrop Echo Designs offered these fabulous freebies, For Our Troops, for your use.

Thank you for looking! Have a happy and safe holiday week end.

gorgeous inside and out! Been 'hearing' a lot about this October Afternoon paper. I can certainly see why you like, no LOVE it!! We really can't appreciate our teachers enough!!
Oh, this is fabulous. It's so sunny! I love that yellow patterned paper. And you made the inside pretty too. I am always wondering if I should add something to the inside of my cards.
