Happy Turkey Day! Today, and every day, I have so much to be thankful for! My handsome small man, a roof over our heads, food in our bellies, good health, loving family, wonderful friends... I am grateful for all that I have and feel so fortunate that I am able to indulge in this fabulous hobby of mine on top of it all! I've made some cards for the holiday and wanted to share them. The first is for the current Simply B Stamps Facebook group challenge (November Challenge). This is Little Indian Betty and she was free for those who wanted to play along with the challenge. She is now available in the SBS shop (as is her counterpart Pilgrim Corinne). The theme for Betty was to use feathers. That was easy enough. I am cutting it really close to the deadline, but what else is new? lol
Papers are The Pumpkin Patch by DCWV. I actually used this stack on all cards I'm showing off today. It was just the perfect go to paper for all my Fall creations! I matted the image on a Floral Ovals Nestabilities die cut (Spellbinders) and added my feather, flowers, and pearls. Sketch is the current Sweet Sketch Wednesday (#234).
The next three cards all feature images from Saturated Canary: Scratch, Princess Harvest, and Cornelia.
This is Scratch. Isn't he adorable? The sketch is last week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday (#233). I kept this one pretty simple. I used a border die from My Favorite Things and a maple leaf punch. The sentiment is from a Clear Dollar Stamps set.
Next up is Princess Harvest.
The sketch for this one is the very last one from Crafting Life's Pieces (#64). I LOVE these sketches and I was very sad to hear they were closing the challenge blog! It looks like I heaped on the embellishments on this one but it's really just flowers, pearl clusters, and flower trim from Tim Holtz. I used Labels Eight Nestabiliies (Spellbinders) to cut out the image.
And lastly, here is Cornelia.
She's sweet and simple with a couple of pearls, some flowers, and a Tim Holtz muse token. The sketch is Papertake Weekly (#85).
I am looking forward to spending quality snuggle time on the couch with Kayne while we watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade on TV in the morning. Then we will head to my parents' for a delicious turkey family dinner! And of course, it wouldn't be Thanksgiving without a little Black Friday shopping! I won't venture out until after noon (no crazy doorbusting for me!) but it's a yearly tradition with my best friend that we love! The rest of the weekend will be spent in a decorating frenzy!
To all my US readers: a happy and safe Thanksgiving! Thanks for stopping by to see me today! I am grateful for all my followers and for the lovely comments you leave!
