The Crafty Pickle Thankful for cards!!!

Hi Kristin here with my first blog post for The Crafty Pickle and I thought that this "Thankful Heart" stamps set just screamer for me to make some pocket pages cards for the kids to write what they were "Thankful" for this year!!
On the top left hand corner cards I thought that I would put a 5X7 picture of my family and I would slide it under the "Thankful Heart" stamped sentiment, then on the cards the kids would write over the wood grain embossing folders from Close to my Heart Heart and all the different techniques I tried with the 3 different leafs stamps that were in the Thankful Heart stamp set, and then I added the arrow button flair set on the cards for you to follow your eyes around the layout!!!
 And then here are the close-ups:

Product I used:
Thankful Heart Stamp Set
Black  & Brown Stazon
Ranger White Super Fine Embossing Powder
Paper Trimmer, Foam Mat & Corner Rounder

Thank you for looking at my work!!!
