“Give Thanks”

Just posting a card to wish all my friends and family,
 near and afar, home and in blogland,
a Happy Thanksgiving!  How neat that this month begins my fourth year 
blogging (yes, blog anniversary candy coming soon)!
I have been blessed with such support and friendship and it is among those things 
for which I am so very grateful! So in the spirit of saying “thank you” 
for your kind comments, inspiration and friendship, 
I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving and hope you are spending the day
 surrounded by those you love and who love you!  
 
For my card, I colored up one of my favorite oldies but goodies Fall stamp, 
CC Designs Swiss Pixies “Fall Hansel”. He was colored with copic markers.

 The design papers are all from Simple Stories, “Harvest Lane” 6×6 inch pad. The last few pages have great tags and banners you can cut out that coordinate with the full page papers.  The brown mat cardstock is from PaperTrey Ink. Last, I added some twine,
fall paper leaves, burlap strip and stamped a “Give Thanks” sentiment
with a Stampin Up sentiment set stamp.
All edges of the paper were distressed with Rusty Hinge distress ink.
The “sky”  is always created with Pebbles Iridescent chalks (blue).

Thanks so much for stopping by and always for your kind comments.  
Happy Thanksgiving!  xxx
