CWS Mid-Month Inspiration and TGIF Thankful Friday #9

Both Creative With Stamps posts fell on a Friday so I'm rolling two posts into one...again. If you haven't joined the challenge on Creative With Stamps, click on over to the CWS site - it's not too late!  September challenge is LEAVES.

Click here to see my first card - very CAS and here's my mid-month inspiration card:

Pretty much the complete opposite of the first card - LOL! I used a color copy of one of my original pieces and then stamped some of the leaves directly on the background sheet, added a patterned paper strip & added fussy cut smaller leaves & an acorn on top.
There's still time to join the challenge!

AND since it's Friday, I'm thankful this week for my friend, Maricela. Her hubby went deep sea fishing and she brought me some Yellow Tail Tuna steaks. OH MY, they were delicious. I made the coolest thing with some of the tuna - sushi stacks. I'm not much of a cook, but I can follow a recipe. I found this one on Pinterest and it turned out just as it should. Amazing!!

Now it's your turn. Leave me a comment on what you are thankful for this week.
