Thanksgiving and a Puppy...

Is there a cuter card than this? I am so please with this card as I don't do "cute" cards often, and I don't know why because I LOVE them!! This card was made for my niece and fits the Crazy 4 Challenges theme this week which is Thanksgiving! I cheated and made two cards, one cute and one more elegant.

I stamped the "Gobble til you wobble", "Turkey" (both from Cornish Heritage Farms) and "Happy Thanksgiving" (Stampabilites) on Whisper White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored that cute turkey with Prismacolor markers, then adhered that piece to chocolate brown cardstock and put it aside. The designer background papers are from the Paper Studio, and I punched a Martha Stewart pumpkin border out of orange cardstock. I assembled my pieces on a bright orange card sized 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches, tied an ivory ribbon to the card, and finished it off with rhinestones.

This next Thanksgiving card uses Perfect Pearls, and a pretty leaf stamp from Stampendous. I just love their stamps! I stamped "Happy Thanksgiving" (Stampabilities) using Memento Rich Cocoa ink on Whisper white cardstock. I stamped the leaf with Versamark above and below the sentiment. I brushed purple, green and copper Perfect pearls onto the two Versamarked images with a paintbrush. I wiped off the excess dust with a makeup sponge, then tied a ribbon around the card. I attached chocolate brown strips to a olive green card sized 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches then mounted my leaf piece to the card. I added a rhinestone leaf and small circle rhinestones to finish the card.

This last card is a darling digistamp by Jules' Junk and you can see the rest of her images at Digital-Ink Co. I made this card for the Dancing in Pajamas TCP Tuesday Challenge. I colored the puppy with Prismacolor markers then added some snow and glitter to his hat and pom-pom. The designer background papers are from the Paper Studio, and the ribbon, rhinestones, buttons and flowers are from Michael's. Card size 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches.
