Forever Thankful...

Hi People,

My second post of the year and I'm pretty happy and glad to have used my first stamp in the card I made this time. yayy... I bought a stamp set and have user 'forever' sentiments along with the hand-written word Thankful to express gratitude to all my Crafty friends who have helped me in everyway through this crafty journey of mine.. :)

So this Card is for all of you.. expressing my love and thanks :)

Another angle of the card.

I have used a new stamp here and which probably makes me eligible for the CASology challenge of something new :)
and the sentiment 'thankful' is handwritten :) I'm loving my own calligraphy ...

Entering for the following challenges.

This time around, I experimented by Making a carousel explosion box since I wanted to make one of each shape and size.
