Thanksgiving Card

Hi, Friends......

It's the last day of November so I better get my Thanksgiving cards up on my blog!  I used a sketch I saw somewhere that looked like it would use a bunch of scraps since I LOVE a collage look of the rich colors and patterns of autumn.  I stamped with an old Hero Arts Acorns stamp I found at a thrift store and colored it with Distress Markers.

I made a half dozen of these in different patterns.  Here's a group photo:

Supplies used:
Hero Arts-Acorns E1133
Versafine ink in Vintage Sepia
Distress Markers
My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Square STAX die set
DCWV scraps of patterned paper and cardstock
Core'dinations cardstock

So thankful for all the blessings God has given us this year. Thankful also for YOU this Thanksgiving season. I appreciate your kind words of encouragement and support. Hope your holiday season is full of gratitude and joy!!!
