{Texture Tuesday} The Gratitude eDition

mouse over to see the before


We're back with another Texture Tuesday!

This week is all about 'Gratitude'!

Here are the TT challenge details for this linky party.

  • You image must be based on the theme 'gratitude'.
  • Your image must contain  two different Kim Klassen textures. 

I decided to add a little gratitude to my cup, using my dymo labeler.... and one of my hand-made tea tags.

Today I am truly thankful for the 'little things'...such as my dymo labeler....tea tags.... cozy clothes, simple cups, and fabulous folks like each of you!

I textured my image with both 'word' and last week's freebie, 'fall-in'. 

Before we get to linking up.... let's talk next week's TT theme.

Tuesday, October 11th TT Challenge Details:

Let's go with a color? Shall we? I loved the 'orange eDition' we did awhile back.  

How bout the color Red?

So to clarify.... your image must contain the color RED...and be processed with at least one layer of any of my textures. 

New to Texture Tuesdays? Here's the short and sweet TT rules.

  • please link directly to your post, not just to your blog or flickr stream.
  • please link back to the Café. You can grab the TT button HERE, if you wish.
  • please visit the other TT participants and leave them some comment love. Remember it's a party.... and what's a linky party without lots of comment love? Right! 

Want more details? Click HERE for the full scoop!

Let's get this party started!!

Shall we? 

In honor of gratitude, I invite you to take a moment and share something you are thankful for in the comments below.

Kim!!! This is so great! I just love your creativity and am always so inspired by your images and texture work. You manage to use the best fonts! Will you ever share where you get them?? ( "

Good morning Kim,
And thank you.
And always.
What I am thankful for right now is that the thumbnail image finally came through: I always think that I may have done something wrong in treating the linky :-)

Seriously: Nature, Growth in my garden and surroundings, weather, all the flowers that let me take their portraits and all the generous texture designers that encourage me to PLAY.
My fellow editing friends that inspire me to try more. And the meme hosts that make us meet up. You can consider your self being very prominent in all this. Thanks again.

P.S. I'm so very, very grateful for my health!

Kim, I love the new texture - thanks for that. Today I'm thankful for the joy that all children bring to our lives. Mine hav grown up but there are many others to see. Just to watch them process as they try to make sense of this wacky world they have come to live in -- is mega joyous!

KIm, I love this! Can you tell me how you got the gratitude label? Is it a brush or??'
Thanks a million,

Hi Kim,

I love your Gratitude mug and the textures are wonderful. Something strange happened when I went to enter my photo, it asked me if I wanted to sign on with blogger or google. Then it put a BLog label where my photo would go. Now it directs you to blog sign on. Very strange. I tried to remove it, but it won't let me. If you can would you please remove the link to Karen, A Scrapbook of Inspiration. Have a lovely evening.

Hi Kim

Thanks for that last texture in my inbox and I like the idea of using one of those labels on the cup. I'm so grateful for my eyesight

Hi Kim, thanks you for being our host and for all you're teaching me this's been amazing so far :)

Great image and I love the quote.

Hi Kim! love the after......that's very cool how you can hover over like that.........

the texture is perfect -

my favorite coffee mug says "i enter this day with a peaceful heart" so this picture is right up my alley :)

Kim, I am grateful that I was curious enough to find you. Thank you for the textures, for which I am very grateful, and the platform to meet other participants.

Love what you do and your mug is just perfect!

I am grateful to have had the years with my daughter's two children before they moved so horribly far away. We used to live within a couple minutes of each other. Now it's a 10-hour trip there and 10 hours back. We have to save visits for vacation time and do a bit of planning ahead. Not to mention saving up enough money - driving is still less expensive than flying, but not by a whole lot. Oh, yes...I'm grateful to have a vehicle that can make the trip.
October 4, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLinda Deal
Grateful for the obvious: family, good health, freedom:) But, I'm also grateful for TT and the chance to play with your pretty textures! Love you image cool:)

Hi Kim, could you please delete my first entry up there ^^^? I posted the wrong link the first time, so I submitted it a second time with the proper link. *blush* Have a wonderful Tuesday~~

@Marilyn, I used my dymo labeler. it's a real life label on the cup. :)

October 4, 2011 | Registered CommenterKim Klassen
Thank you so much for your beautiful textures...this is my first week participating!
October 4, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGail

I just stopped back to say thanks for inspiring me each week with your wonderful textures. I feel like a little kid every time I receive your e-mails with the gift of textures. Your textures truly paint inspiration into my life. Through your tutorials, you have taught me to go beyond the comfortable in my photography.

Your themes are equally inspiring.'s the way I feel about your work and what you have created for all of us to enjoy.

I posted picture number 127 above. Today was my Granddaughter's 7th birthday and she got a camera from her Mom & Bear. #127 is a beautfiul picture the 7 year old (Brenna) took of her Mommy (Jenn). I am so grateful for both of them and their entire family! Thanks for giving me the opportunity to share this attitude of gratitude!
