Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop September - Remember to Give Thanks


Welcome to the Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop for Setember 2015.  
I am excited to again be participating this month, our theme this month is 

"Remember to Give Thanks" 

You are currently visiting my blog Nicole Bonar :)  
Our full blog hop line up is listed below, it will help you move along from blog to blog so you can see all the projects.

So grab a coffee .. get comfy .. and lets get started. I am sure you are going to love seeing all the wonderful creations made for your viewing pleasure.

My card comes from the stamp set Kinda Eclectic it is one of my favourite sets and I feel kindness and giving thanks go hand in hand.  I have inked up one side of the Honeycomb TIEF and placed the cardstock inside and gently rubbed it to get the background impression without actually embossing it, the sunburst rays are peaking out from just under the
Deco Labels Framelits.


I have also used the new Silver Cording Trim to finish off it really curls nicely with the blade of your scissors or bone folder.  The colour palette is shown below.


Thanks for stopping by & taking part in our Grand Vacation Blog Hop, with so many amazing ideas & inspiration you won't want to miss one! Remember you are currently at my blog Nicole Bonar, please check the line up below and click the next person on the list to continue.

Week 1 was simply AMAZING! Over 70 people played along with this new Weekly Challenge ... Each Monday Evening (AEST) we are provided with a new challenge, some of the best Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe are involved, come join the fun, check out the great creations & play along yourself with the challenges.

The sketch challenge this week was provided by designer

I wasn’t quite sure what kind of card or sentiment would end up on today’s card but in the end it became obvious our next big celebration is “Christmas”
Can you believe it’s only 98 days till Christmas?



There are several layers starting with the base Kraft Cardstock followed by Silver Foil, Garden Green & finally Whisper White.

I’ve stamped Watercolor Wash Background in Real Red (lightly stamped off) followed by Gorgeous Grunge Splatters in Garden Green.

The sentiment is from Wondrous Wreath, heat embossed in silver, and the circles are cut using the circle framelits.

My product shopping list is below
