As we officially head into the holiday season, the Dream Team are challenging all of our followers to be especially "Thankful and Thoughtful" during the month of November. We hope that you will link your creations with this theme in mind on the Dream It Up! blog using the Inlinkz tool. Our "thanks" to you is providing you with the opportunity to win the stencil of your choice, and a bonus stencil of our choosing could be yours for using Dreamweaver product(s) in your artwork. I'm posting this for you today:

I'll be honest, I hurt my hand pretty bad, so I had to put this project off until the last minute. And it's still bothering me, so I couldn't be too extreme with this project. I used the Maple Leaf stencil along with the Gears stencil. First I inked up the leaf, and then the gears. After that, I heat embossed the leaf.

I inked, sketched and striped around the leaf, and I also inked the base card to distress it a bit.

I used a sheet from Graphic 45's steampunk paper, as it was the perfect style and pop of color that the card needed. 
By the way, the Dream Team are very THANKFUL when our followers are THOUGHTFUL enough to leave us a nice comment on our posts! Here's the "A" team lineup for this week, as well as our very special guest designer, Linda Neff!
Alison Heikkila (that's me!)

Alison...I've seen that beautiful paper with the gears and you really pulled it all together with the gear stencil too! Beautiful...and I certainly hope your hand is better soon. Thinking of you!

I hope your hand gets better soon. I love that G45 paper. I think it is my all time favorite. At first I thought you used metal for the leaf until I saw it closer. So pretty.

Love your use of the gears to match the G45 paper! Hope your hand is better soon.
