give thanks...

Giving Thanks...

What does that mean to you?

I'm thankful for my family and friends.

I'm thankful for my healthy kidlets that make me laugh...alot.

I'm thankful for second chances.

I'm thankful for finding someone that I was meant to be with.

That's what it means to me.

I used the The Craft's Meow October Release:





My frosted cardbase is from Shortcuts that are no longer available {sorry to use them but I have TONS!}...the paper is Pink Paislee, the seambinding ribbon is Stampin' Up, Tim Holtz/latte alcohol ink**
**whatta mess I managed to make with the ink...love the misted look but I wanted the droplet look too...inked up a toothbrush for the misted and started slinging around the ink for the droplet look..oy vey...went a smidge too crazy so I fussy cut the turkey and carefully adhered him to the place where there was a gush of ink...LOL



A sketch by our own Lynn Miller!

Okay, so here's the deal... you may enter as often as you like, but you must use TCM stamps and we must be able to see the sketch in there somewhere. You are free to flip it or turn it as you like! You have until November 14th at 9:00 pm Pacific to link your card. Oh, and the best part? We'll randomly award a TCM stamp set of choice to one lucky winner!!!

  3. great card even if you did go a little crazy with the misting. Great sketch too bad I don't own any of those stamps. I might have to remedy that soon.
