Happy Thanksgiving

Good Morning.   How is everyone doing?  I am busy.  I am really busy at work (which is good), I am trying to get Xmas shopping done so I am not out at the last minute,  at this time of year there are crafts fairs every weekend which I really can't miss and I still don't have my xmas cards done!

It is Tuesday so that means another wonderful challenge at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations!  This week we want you to make a Thanksgiving card.  I don't have alot of Thanksgiving images and I really wasn't in the mood to color a Turkey so I found this great image at  Saturated Canary Designs.  Isn't she adorable?  Once the card was done I tried to add Happy Thanksgiving but unless I made it so small you couldn't read it I just couldn't seem to fit it on the card so I chose one of my favorite sentiment stamps that I believe says the same thing.  In Everything Give Thanks is what Thanksgiving is about.

The other wonderful challenges this card fits are:

Diva's by Design - Metal (my pins)
Freshly Brewed - Food
Penny's Paper Crafty - Give Thanks
Sisterhood of Crafters - Giving Thanks
Stampavie and More - Anything Goes
Truly Scrumptious - Bingo (Gems, Flowers, Punch/Die Cuts)
