Cutting Cafe/Thanksgiving Set

Thanksgiving is one of my most favorite holidays because my son and daughter in law come home for our celebration of the holiday.

Our inspiration post on Wednesday November 16 at Cutting Cafe is featuring a wonderful set called Thanksgiving Day. It has so many fantastic images and printables to make those cards to send to family and friends. When I see this set, I always head for that precious little turkey fella all dressed up in his top hat. Here is my card for the inspiration post.

I printed off the backgrounds for Happy Thanksgiving and Gobble Gobble. Those have been section into two different layers. I embossed and mounted the printables on brown and cinnamon cardstock. I put a black cardstock layer on the white base card, added a brown and white plaid ribbon. I added a second layer of embossed white cardstock. The little turkey fella has been colored in with my Copics. I have a hard time coloring with my hand problem but I hope turkey fella is presentable. I added a ribbon and the gobble sentiment was cut from my Stamped Cricut cartridge.
This is sort of a preview of my take on the inspiration challenge, but I hope on Wednesday you will pop over to the Cutting Cafe blog and take a peep ...er peek at the design team cards and projects. I think we are a pretty awesome group of gals with great ideas. Working with Regina's printables is fun and the cards we can create are pretty awesome. Thank you for visiting my blog.
