BC 178 - Thanksgiving

Don't you just LOVE thanksgiving?  There are so many reasons this is my favorite holiday.  Football, comfort foods, relaxing, family, America, Pilgrims, neighborleeness (is that a word?) and of course God - after all who are we thankful to???  In case you can't tell, I love thanksgiving and am so glad it is less than a week away.  I had so much fun with this weeks challenge.  I had picked up this stunning stamp from Bella Art last month. It is a beauty from Lockhart.  I have inked her up  a number of times sometimes with pencils, this time with the copics. I added some spica pen into the leaves to add that sparkle the sun puts on them in real life.  Hope you are enjoying your pre-holiday prep and aren't stressed out over those pies and sides!  Enjoy and thanks for leaving a comment!


Recipe:
Stamps:  Lockhart, sentiment from SU (retired)
paper: SU: More mustard (solid and DSP), chocolate chip &  very vanilla
Ribbon: SU more mustard
Extras: copics, spica pens, sewing (on sew mini), nesties (for square scallop)

What lovely details in this card. It is subtle and very beautifully balanced. And this is one of my favorite Bible quotes, one I've used to say our Thanksgiving prayer for years and years....
