SOS Challenge #20 -Thank You

This week's theme at Shopping Our Stash is Thank You or Thanksgiving, and my card is truly in the spirit of this challenge blog - ALL STASH!

Back in September I took a Saturday and did some major purging of s-crap from the Captain's Quarters. Along the way I re-discovered this piece of very very very old Basic Grey paper and declared it "Fall colors":

This card is 99% scraps, er ... remnants, and yes, I am very proud. The blue is SU Bordering Blue (I think), the brown strip is from a piece of Core'dinations paper (it has a really cool green on the other side, but I digress), and the base & sentiment (by Hero Arts) are on some Naturals White. The tiny piece of orange is Cajun Craze, and I didn't have a scrap of that. ;( Oh, and the ribbon was already tied! I must have taken it off a failed card intact. I just cut the loop in back and taped it to the card. EASY!

So there you have it - a scrappy Thank You card! Now go into your stash, find something you haven't used in a while, make a Thank you or Thanksgiving card, and come link up to us at Shopping Our Stash so we can see what you've made!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. THANK YOU for showing us how gorrrrrrrgeous a card made entirely of scraps and leftovers can be! this is FAB♥U♥LOUS indeed and a perfect "guy" card too!!!!!!! :)

  2. Wonderful card! It would be perfect for a masculine card!

  3. Lovin the fall colours & that sweet layout. I need to make some scrappy thank yous. Been thinking they'd make great Christmas gifts as card collections...
