Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Hi all and Happy Turkey Day! Yesterday while the kiddos were at school, I took some time to whip up these turkey day cards for them. I want to write a little note inside to let them know that I am soooo very thankful they are in my life! They are both amazing kids and I'm pretty blessed.

Both of these cards are pretty easy peasy! I stamped this cutie patootie turkey in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics - E31, E33, E25, E27, R14, R27, Y17, YR14, E08,100 and a little C00, C01, C03 and B0000 for shading.

For Card #1, I cut out my turkey with a Nesties Circle. While the shape was still on, I sponged some Antique Linen Distress Ink all around my turkey. I left the die on so that I could create that bit of white edge. Mat it on a shape cut with the Spellbinders Blossom Die. Then... mat the entire card up! My main card measures 4-1/4 by 4 and then I layered the circle so that it spilled over. The card will still fit in a standard size envie because I made sure the circle wasn't placed too high above my fold line. The sentiment is also from this fun little clear set called Happy Turkey Day from Impression Obsession. The papers are Basic Grey Porcelain, and 7 Gypsies Nottinghill. The buttons were some I grabbed from the ole button jar.
Card #2
For Card #2, the only difference is really the paper. I ran some Lasting Impressions Weathered Nutmeg paper through my Wizard with a Swiss Dots Embossing Folder and then sanded down the dots for a little something extra.The red paper is Weathered Barn also by Lasting Impressions and the strip is a paper from Prima. Add some May Arts twine and a button (Little Yellow Bus Epoxy Buttons)and... voila!

Hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving and along with counting all those calories... can count your blessings too! :-)

See you back here soon!
