STAMPlorations 3rd Annual GIVING THANKS Blog Hop & Linky Party!!

Hello crafty friends!
I'm so excited to be a part of the blog hop going on at STAMPlorations today:

There are 35 participating designers in all (8 of which are amazing
designers representing different challenge blogs), plus a linky party
that you can share your "thankful" cards and projects.
Oh, and there are prizes too!!

For my first card, I've used the Typografia- Thankful People stamp. This just
needed to be made into a chalkboard panel! After I heat embossed the 
sentiment in white, I dry brushed white ink around the panel, then doodled above
and below it with a white PrismaColor pencil.
My background was die cut using the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting die.

Here's a close up:

I used sentiments from the Blossom Overture stamp set to finish the inside.

On my second card,
stamped onto a Luggage Tag Nesting die. I used the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting die for my background again. Some burlap ribbon, twine, and enamel dots finish my card.

Oh, and I did mention there were going to be prizes:
