Happy Friday Everyone!
I should have known this week was going to be one of those weeks by what I managed to accomplish last weekend....absolutely nothing! I procrastinated on just about everything and this week wasn't much different. I had good intentions of painting the rest of the stairway and making a fall banner and a card or two....but none of that happened. I think I'm coming down with a cold or something. For two weeks now I've been struggling with a congested ear and it's starting to get on my nerves! No other symptoms have presented themselves, just an ear that refuses to pop. A cold, I can deal with, no cold and a stuffed up ear...not so much! Grr!
Since it's still looking a lot like Fall around here (I'm hanging onto my summer as long as I can!), I made this Thanksgiving card to share with you all.
I used the cornucopia from the TSG's Bountiful Blessings set and paired it with some different papers this time around. I'm still all about using up what I have, so I pulled out some of Cosmo Cricket's Circa 1934 paper which worked really well with the yellows and oranges in the image. I can't decide whether I love the character sets or the realistic sets from TSG's - they're both great for coloring up! Even with my medium of choice - watercoloring! The image was colored up with a bunch of SU reinkers. The base was done in Sahara Sand and the blue around the image was Cool Caribbean. Each panel was sponged with some Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress Ink and machine stitched to some cardstock.
TSG is sponsoring this week's sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches, so if you want to win yourself a gift certificate to the TSG webstore, then get cracking and whip a card! My layout is based on this week's sketch.
I promise (ok, I really, really hope) to be a little more organized next week and have a few things to share with you...including another project I worked on for the house!
I hope you have an enjoyable weekend and stay warm my friends!
