So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Happy Turkey Day

Today I made a Thanksgiving card that will be used for 2 challenges. The first challenge is for the Outlines Challenge 26 (here is their website) -- Thanksgiving and the other challenge is for For Fun Challenges (here is their website)- Can you smell What's Cookin? For this challenge the recipe was:  1)food ( I did vegetables) 2) 2 decorated papers (I did 2 different dp on the front and one on the inside) 3) 3 brads, buttons or eyelets (I used 3 leaf brads).

I used GKD pumpkin spice cs and the dp paper is from TPC Studio and SEI. I used the Outlines Stamps AA085- Tiny Happy Turkey Day, E-770 Thanks for All and I-793 Split Layering Collage Autumn. I stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento and then colored with Copics and Sakura glitter pens. I only used 2 of the collage images and cut them out and then put them on a different dp for background. Added some brown twine ribbon and brads on the front.

The inside I used some stickers and one of the collage images. And I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
