Papertake Weekly GDT spot! "Thank You"

So a few weeks back, the Papertake Weekly Challenge was lookin' for some crafters to be GDT's for their final challenge of the year in order to give the regular DT some much needed & much deserved time off! I e-mailed Dawny, offering my services & she accepted my offer!
I'm so excited to be here to make this special card for their



This week they are being sponsored by SIMON SAYS STAMP with a $25.00 gift voucher!!
Woo HOO!!

I have used an image from Prairie Fairy Designs called The Lighthouse.
This is my first time attempting this image & boy does it speak volumes.
And since I have been experimenting with watercolor painting using reinkers, I thought I'd use this method to color my image! Turned out darker than I had anticipated, but overall I am pleased with it. I paired it with some darker papers as well.
All the ribbons you see here are from Really Reasonable Ribbons. The button is from our local fabric store. Pins are homemade, the creamy peach one by my BFF the Prairie Fairy & the darker one by moi! A closer look of these can be seen on the bottom pic.
I also took a few closer shots of the image & it seemed the closer I got, the more I wanted to knock on the door to this little mansion! Country Cozy I call it! lol

Now head on over to the Papertake Weekly Challenge and show us your Thankful creation!

Perhaps I'll give this to my hubby for spoilig all of us 'rotten' this Christmas.
Perhaps I'll keep it & be reminded of all the things I am thankful for....
