Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi everyone! Hope you're having a nice Thanksgiving! I have two more cards to share with you today that I made for relatives to celebrate Thanksgiving Day.

I stamped the images on a cream tri-fold card, so there would be several layers to the card.

For the second layer of the card, I hung the fall charm with twine so it is floating in the window. 

You can't tell from the photo, but I colored the metal charm with an orange copic marker. It added a beautiful copper sheen to the pewter charm. If you didn't know it already, you can dye so many things with your copic markers, including metal, acrylic, pearls, gemstones, etc. It can add a nice subtle touch to do this!

For the final layer of the card, I stamped the large wheat image from PTI First Fruits. You can see hints of the wheat through the other layers. The sentiment, from Gobble, Gobble, fits perfectly inside.

And this is a second version of the same card with a few more accents and details and the final of the three fall charms.

I'm thankful for my family, but I'm also thankful for all of you who take the time to stop by here. I appreciate it so much and am grateful to have you all as readers and followers.

Have a wonderful and sunny Thanksgiving Day. May you have a special day with your family and find many blessed reasons to be grateful today!
