Happy Thanksgiving

My sister in laws birthday is just before Thanksgiving so I made a little 3 3/4 inch square thanksgiving card to put in with her birthday card this year.


Studio G -- Pumpkins stamp, colored w/markers and Alphabet stamp set
Spellbinders -- Lattice Rectangles die
Lawn Fawn Big Scripty Words stamp and Die set

The Thanks I cut twice to give a shadow but I don't like how the stamping of it came out onto the textured cardstock.

Next is the birthday card I sent her.



This is a new stamp set I hadn't used before and I think it is just too cute.

Great Impressions -- Valentine Bird Houses colored w/markers
Die-Namics -- Cross stitch rectangles die
BasicGrey - Picadilly paper
Martha Stewart -- Border punch
Sizzix-- Branch w/leaves die
K&co. - Birthday & Celebrate Vellum Stickers

Wishing all my American Friends a very Happy Thanksgiving, may you share a wonderful day with family and friends,  and to all of you I am thankful for our on line friendships we have, you make my days bright, thanks for being apart of my life :)

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Connie

H Connie two superb creations made for your SiL, skilful creations, well done! You could fussy cut the two ends off the die "thanks if you wanted the tails to be even with edge. I often change Die cuts.
Thanks for sharing, and for your comment on Mondays post.

I love them both! The little thanksgiving card is so adorable! But then the birdies are too...lucky little couple with FOUR houses to choose from, hehhe

Now I have an even better understanding of just how crisp, neat and precise your workmanship is my dear Connie, thanks to your one to me. These, no doubt are the same.
Blessings! x

Connie, I adore both of these cards! I saw the first and thought how you just get more and more creative, and then you shared the second, as well. Love those pumpkins AND the birdhouse stamp! These cards make me feel happy, and that's what it's all about!
