Happy Thanksgiving!

Today is Thanksgiving Day here in Canada. I do believe we have much to be thankful for and I also believe every day should be a day of giving thanks to God for all He blesses us with. We had our dinner yesterday with all except 2 of our family. What a blessing that was! There is nothing I enjoy more than being surrounded by my family.
All of these cards were made in September and yes, I know it is terrible, I am just now posting them. Please forgive me, but I have been quite busy.

This one was for a color challenge. We had to use spooky colors like purple, black, green. I love this set from Stampin Up.

This is a very simple card to make. The image is stamped on white and the edges are punched with a Martha Stewart border punch. Used Copics to color and added the snowflake, brad and ribbon.

I needed another Sympathy card, too many of them lately. The image is stamped with versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder and lightly colored. Nestibilities, Cuttlebug and swiss dots folder were used as well as a Fiskars corner punch.

This was for one of Stef's amazing inspiration challenges. I don't know how she keeps coming up with these amazing websites. I love the simplicity of this card. The colors are white and tango tangerine. The bird is cut out and popped up on dimensionals.

For a sketch challenge. The cardstock is from Bazzil and the designer paper is Basic Grey. Image is Stampin up and colored with watercolor crayons and blender pen. Added some dewdrops and twine.

Another inspiration challenge that gave me the opportunity to use my new Nestibilities Pendant. Base is gold metallic, topped with razzleberry cardstock that has been dry embossed. Added pearl halves to center of pendant and the hearts. The ribbon was off a package I received over a year ago and was a perfect match for the cardstock.

This was a case of a card done by the Featured Stamper of the week. The tree and spiders are made with the Cricut Expressions. The orange is dry embossed with the pumpkin folder. The 3" card is also made with my Cricut. It is black with an orange layer inside that highlights the cut out spider.

Peggy at Paperworks Co. in Edmonton has come out with the cutest stamp sets. These are from the Jungle Jesters set. They are colored with Copics, cut out and popped up on dimensionals. Found some fibre to use for the vines and added a couple of butterflies. Colors are razzleberry, crushed curry and black.

Another of the Jungle Jesters cuties.

There are 2 other sets: Safari Friends and Aqua Amigos, all just as cute as these.

This brings me up to date for September's cards. Next I will post what I have done so far in October. Be sure and check out the other blogs I have listed. These are some very talented ladies that love sharing their talents.
Blessings to all,
