Giving Thanks

Hi, it's Misti again!

Growing up, I heard my Dad comment on how stores were going from Halloween right into Christmas and completely skipping Thanksgiving. I heard it alot!

I know that now they have figured out a way to make more Fall candy and cookies, but there is still a lot of skipping of Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for... big and little.  I hope you take a few minutes to be thankful for the blessings in your life.

For my card, I stamped the wagon from Autumn Blessings from Flourishes onto a white piece of cardstock. I used Vintage PhotoWild HoneySpiced MarmaladePeeled PaintFired Brick and Black Soot Tim Holtz distress markers with the Tim Holtz Water Brush. When I colored the gourds a solid color, they looked a little funny to me, so I added some faint green lines to them.  I don't know if you can see that or not.

I used two papers from the Autumn Song paper pad by Bo Bunny.

The ribbon is Old Gold - Sheer Asiana and it is gorgeous!

I had a hard time trying to decide which sentiment to use, I liked how the "Give Thanks" sentiment fit, so I went with it.

I added some Baby White Pearls to the two corners to jazz it up a little.

Great card for the season! Thanks Misti!
