Thanksgiving Blessings


Greetings Followers!  Today's post is for Word Wednesday over at 365 Cards.  Our word this week is "Thankful."  I was excited to be able to ink up this adorable pilgrim child by Lost Coast Design.  I stamped the focal image onto a manila tag, added some vines by Artistic Outpost along the bottom of the tag and distressed the entire tag with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  The digital image to the right of the focal image, the leaves at the top and the sentiment are all by Gecko Galz.  I stained a paper doily with Wild Honey Distress Stain and layered all the pieces over a white card blank that was distressed with Vintage Photo and Wild Honey Distress Stain.  A bit of spritz and flick technique and the corners were stamped with a complimentary stamp I received recently from Crafty Individuals. The pumpkin dye cuts were left over from an earlier project as was the seam binding bow that was colored with Distress Paint. A bit of brown burlap string and some buttons from my stash from my stash complete my card.  For those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow, Happy Thanksgiving.  It is nice to stop for a day and give thanks for all the blessings in our lives, to eat too much and spend time with family.  Hugs, Yvonne

I can see why you were excited to ink her up Yvonne she is so sweet. The digi image and the doily add so much depth to the card.

It's fabulous. I like the string circle and buttons - a neat rustic embellishment.

Absolutely love the glowing colours here - those leaves and the doily look wonderful - and the delicate inking on the tag with that exquisite little girl - this is a real beauty, Yvonne.

Happy Thanksgiving for tomorrow!
