What fun! Thanks for this great sketch, Ally! Thanks, Sabrina, for the Teapot idea to "Open Your Eyes." Fulfilling the Teapot challenge for the week was easy for me! One of the blessings for me was to rediscover stamping and SCS. I came back to stamping in February and to SCS, with the encouragement of my brother. I played many challenges and posted several cards each week, sometimes 2 a day! Then in June, I got a personal message from Lydia inviting me to become a Dirty Girl! Wow, me, a Dirty Dozen member! How did that happen? I was elated, to say the least. It was, also, in June when the SU! Forever Greenery Suite came out! I love this set, so I made this card with different features from this set. I was so excited, that I couldn't wait to order and use it. Used from the set are: stamps, dies, EF, gold leaves DSP and DSP. The color IRL is much brighter! The embossed papers on the sides and the stamped leaves are Soft Sea Foam. The card base is Pretty Peacock. I hope this will be pleasing to my Teapot friend that gets it! This card made me happy to make it! Thank you SCS friends! You are the greatest! You make me happy everyday, either with your beautiful art or your wonderfully generous comments on my cards! Thank you, thank you, for brightening my year! TFL! ~Chrysi

LOVE your take on the challenge! And I love that I got to "meet" you in 2020! So glad you found your way back to SCS where everything is normal, right? Nothing changed here--you're all still there for me--just a keyboard or a mailbox away :0)
Great job with the sketch and your new SU goodies!

Love all these pretty elements from this set that you have used on here. It is on my list to order. I am so glad you came back to SCS too! I still can't get over your generous gift in my last teapotter scarecrow card. I bet this is gorgeous irl. The camera can be very uncooperative, lol. Have a wonderful day!

What a lovely card...I can see why you liked this set. I'm especially fond of the gold leaves at the bottom. I'm glad you came back to SCS...it's been a tough year on all of us but we have our craft and friendship and that has kept us going. Thank you for sharing your art with us!

What a lovely use of the slimline format, framing the leaves with the embossed panel. Overall I think it has a real harvest feel with the colours, and the embossed texture like corn or wheat. I'm glad that overall it's been such a good year for you!
