Let the countdown begin!

Only seven more sleeps until Thanksgiving in the US! Yay! We're very fortunate that we don't have to travel on this day. My in laws live 5 minutes down the road from us, so my 3 year old won't get cranky on the way there and the appetizers I bring will still be warm!

Here's a card I made in honor of Thanksgiving Day next week. Isn't this the cutest image you've seen?? I wish I could tell you what company it's from, but after a half hour of scouring the Internet and SCS, I couldn't find any info on it. If you know who makes it, can ya let me know?? I may just have to make a purchase. This is another image I had received in an image swap and lost track of who it was from. Sorry!!

Again, I colored the image with my SU inks and aquapainter. I don't have the SU Basic Black ink, so I use my Distress Inks 'Black Soot' instead. It's great because it can give you the blackest of black or just a very light grey coverage. For the background, I channeled my Hanna Stamps DT pal and Dirty Dozen Alumni, Jeanne Streiff. I really love how her cards are so detailed, yet so uncluttered. I let the image take center stage on this card and just matted it, popped it on dimensionals and onto the card. The ribbon was something I picked up at my LSS a year ago and I got the charm at a cute little scrapbook store in Manchester, NH called Talk, Paper, Scissors. The cutest little shop ever and they have this workshop area that is to DIE for!! I have to go back there again soon!

Ok, now I have to get dressed and head to work! LOL But before I do, there's just one person I have to give a shout out.....

Hi Sandra,

I was checking out a site that has SU stamps for sale and this image popped up. It's from a set called Thanks Be For Thee and was retired in 2002. It's on the Webstore for $20.00.

This is a darling image and, as usual, love what you've done with it!
