Joan's Gardens Challenge #24

This week, with the holiday fast approaching, the challenge at Joan's Gardens has us creating a project which includes the following:

1. Create a Thanks giving card.
2. Use something Fallish such as Leaves, Pumpkins or Indian Corn (if you don't have a stamp use a leaf from your tree.
3. The color Green.
4. Some kind of swirl or vine.

I was able to get some great Heartfelt Creations stamps last week during one of Joan's sales. They were just perfect for this challenge!

My card was created using HCPC 3329 Pumpkin/Autumn Vines Pre-cut Set. The sentiment was taken from HCPC 3328 Swirly Autumn Leaves PreCut Set. I used a layer of dp from the Memory Box, Blackbird collection. Images were embossed with gold detail powder and colored with Copic Markers. The vines were all hand cut. I added a few olive pearls as accents. That's about it!

I know it is a busy week for everyone so if I don't get to say it later, Happy Thanksgiving! My kids came yesterday and we had a huge turkey dinner. Today I am using as a rest day! Six hours of cooking, 10 minutes of eating, and hours of clean up. Still, I know we are so blessed!

Lucky you to grab those items before they were gone! I'm a straggler .......most were sold out before I found out about the sale! LOL Ah well, I'm always a day late and a dollar short! LOL
Pretty card, I just love those hand-cut vines!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours as well! I was talking to a guy at the grocery store today who said his Mom had her Thanksgiving over the weekend too! You don't have a son named Jeff do you? Small world if you do!
