Thanksgiving Images

Hello, I bet everyone is gearing up for the Holiday, it will be quiet around here this year, my daughter and son in law are staying in North Carolina, can't do the trip now and at Christmas, we will miss them very much but I will have to say with all the bad weather that they would be driving through I am thankful I won't have to worry about them getting into trouble.  I sure hope in a couple of weeks the weather will be nice for their traveling.

This first card went out to the kids. Hopefully they will get it today.  When I saw this image over on Abby's blog, I thought that would be very cute for their card.  Abby is so sweet to let you use some images that she has collected along the way, she also shares lovely poems and inspirational messages, just click on her name above to check out her blog.  Thanks Abby for sharing.

Spellbinders -- A2 Matting Basics A dies
Taylored Expressions -- Mini leaves dies

My second card goes out to my Sister in law, this image is from Crafty secrets, I signed up for their emails and sometimes they have free clipart for you to use and this is from one of those emails. Here is a link to Heartwarmingvintage blog .

Image -- Crafty secrets
Spellbinders -- Classic Circle, Floral Doily Motifs and Scalloped borders two dies
Impression Obsession -- spiral flower dies
Martha Stewart -- Leaf punch
DCWV -- paper

I did a little sponging around the image with Old paper distress inks and about the mini spiral flowers at the bottom right, these are just tiny little dies and trying to roll the flowers were very hard, I am going to purchase a quilling tool and hopefully that will make winding the flowers easier, I will let you know how that goes once I get one and try it out.

Hope you all will enjoy a wonderful day of Thanksgiving for all the blessings God has provided for you this past year and have great time with family and friends.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
