Give Thanks!


Happy Friday! I hope that everyone had a terrific week! The Joanne Basile class that I was SO looking forward to last Saturday was as WONDERFUL as I hoped it would be! If you are lucky enough to take one of her classes, I highly recommend it! You can see her class listings here and I know that she has more things planned for after the holidays.

My card for today combines Jen Del Muro's Sketch For You To Try from last week and this week's Blogger's Challenge (Give Thanks theme). I didn't go with a Thanksgiving card because I needed a Thank You card for a sweet friend of mine. I did keep with an Autumn theme though. This adorable image is from the Pure Innocence line from My Favorite Things. She is colored up with Copic Markers (E000, E11, E21, E33, E35, E40, YG01, YG03, YG13, YR16, and the Colorless Blender) and her ginormous pumpkin is paper pieced with some fun polka dotted paper from Bo-Bunny. This particular stamp is out of stock at the moment, but I'm sure Kim will have it back in very soon! The sentiment is from a different Pure Innocence set called Bunch of Blooms. That one is in stock and you can find it here. All of my October Afternoon papers are sewed onto a cream panel and then mounted onto a Kraft card base. I added a few buttons from my stash to finish this one up.

Now it's time to see what the other Ladies from the Blogger's Challenge group have come up with. You can find their blogs right here. Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit...Toodles! :D
