W2SB Challenge #11: Gratitude & Kindness

Welcome to another inspired challenge at Words 2 Scrap By!  This is Annie and I'm honored to be the Guest Host for Bobbi & Sybrina this month.  Big shoes to fill but I'm going to try!

With November, our thoughts turn to Thanksgiving and being grateful for our many blessings.  At W2SB, we believe that gratitude and kindness can be expressed at any time throughout the year and offer the following quote for this month's inspiration:

You cannot do a kindness too soon because
you never know how soon it will be too late.

Let's take a look at what the I-Teamers came up with to get your mojo moving.

First up is our guest I-Teamer this month, Julia, who wowed us in August with her winning design and she has done it again with this beautiful card.  Love that dreamy tree and the soft colors!

What an awesome background to complement Sybrina's Gratitude bronze embossed medallion!  

What better way to say thanks and show kindness by telling someone they are awesome!  Penny's card is a wonderful CAS design with strong graphic elements - love those "awesome" circles!

Bobbi's card is so peaceful and serene.  That landscape is fantastic and the sentiment is absolutely perfect!

I put on the spritz for my card going for a masculine feel with this Thank You card for a special friend.  

Oh, did someone say PRIZE?  Yep, we did!  In addition to being the Guest I-Teamer in January and being awarded the winner badge for your blog...there's this fantastic Mini Blueprints stamp set by Tim Holtz that will be mailed to the challenge winner!  Think of all the cards you can make with eight stamps in one set!

Now it's your turn!  Link up a card expressing gratitude or showing kindness to someone special.  Your entry does not have to have a seasonal theme.  We can't wait to see what you create!
