HAPPY THANKSGIVING - AND TAMARA'S SKETCH CHALLENGE

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!!! I know we all love to eat the yummy dishes we prepare for this special day, but don't forget o take some time to reflect what you are thankful for!! I can tell you - I am thankful for my wonderful husband, my beautiful children, the fact that we are healthy, have a warm place to live, clothes on our bodies, and food in the fridge. And, I am thankful for those serving overseas right now in protection of our country so that we can enjoy this day with our family and friends!! I hope everyone has a great Turkey Day!!! Now, I know that a lot of my friends have either alread celebrated their Thanksgiving or don't have one in their country and so I do have a card for you today using Tamara's sketch challenge. I will be honest, I had a harder time with this sketch, but I think it turned out okay. I used my Winter Post stamp set for the image and the Home for Christmas set for the sentiment! I also did some paper piercing and added some vintage brads along with one of my favorite felt flurries!! The background strips are actually wide pieces of chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon over Riding Hood Red Patterned Prints Dp. I hope you like it and will hop over to Tamara's site to check out what the rest of the DT did for today! And, how about giving the sketch a try yourself? Just upload the link to the site so we can all see!!! So, I am off to get things prepped for dinner this afternooon - just a few last minute details to see to since I did most of it yesterday!! I will be back tomorrow with Stamp Something Friday - Happy Turkey Day!!!!
