Thankful Challenge

My first card meets two challenges. It uses the sketch from the Verve blog party release challenge #2 and also answers the following question...What is the one tool you are most thankful for? The challenge on Fairy Creative Place this week is to use the tool, and only the one tool, for which you are most thankful. I have 2 tools that I am thankful for, my sewing machine and my Cuttlebug. I decided to go with my Cuttlebug because I received it as a gift and it helped reinvigorate my love for paper crafting. I received it for my Birthday last year (thanks again Jen) and at the time I was not buying anything new, I was stuck in a crafting rut. Once I had my Cuttlebug, I started browsing SCS again and then found blogs of a couple wonderfully talented people. The rest is history...the on-line crafting community is so incredibly supportive and I am having so much fun. I hope you are all having fun too!
My second card I made for the purse that I posted earlier today. I really like all the yellow, including yellow clouds.That is it for right now. I am working away at more of the Verve release challenges.
Details: Yes, you should know by now...SU Sweet Slumber PP, and the stamp set - Verve, Up, Up and Away!, plus CB swiss dots and swirls, CS PTI and SU.
