Happy Thanksgiving

I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels.  I will be spending my Thanksgiving with my husband, son, and stepson at my BFF's parents house.  They have been so kind to invite us to thier home the last 3 years.  My parents live in Alabama, so I dont get to spend the holidays with them.  I am grateful to have special people to spend Thanksgiving with.

I made a card tonight that fits the Color Throwdown and the Card Patterns challenge.  Let me tell you...this was definately a challenge for me.  Not colors I would normally use, but in the end I am very happy with it.  I love how the the little skunk is offering a flower.  How cute!

Bazzil cardstock
Basic Grey  Marrakech  patterned paper
Hero Arts Stamps and crystals
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Spellbinders scalloped circles
Craft cardstock for card base
water color pencils to color the stamped image

I also made a card the other night for The Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #19 and The Taylored Expressions Challenge.  This one I am not sure about.  It doesnt look anything like what I normally make.  What do ya do?  Oh well.I think it is just simpler than what I like.  It fits the color combo and the sketch so it will have to do.  Guess ya can't love em all.

And one last picture for you

This fat little guy just finished raiding my bird feeder.  I love the birds and feed them all year round.  Some times...okay most times the squirrels help themselves too.  Oh well, gotta feed em all.  Even the deer eat out of my ground feeder.  I am a huge animal lover and enjoy watching all the little critters eat.  Except the raccoons.  They are horrible, they break the feeders trying to get to the food.

Thanks for stopping by,

Beautiful cards Heather. That little guy is so cute! Our visitors over here are the kookaburras and the koalas! So cool to see some different animals:)

Love the skunk image; these cards are really great. The picture of the squirrel is precious; he looks very well fed. I'm an animal lover too so it doesn't bother me too much when an unintended guest eats up the food haha

I'll be having a giveaway for my 100th blog post within the next few days so check in with me from time to time to join in on that. The prize isn't totally set yet but it will be a mixture of many different doodads and thingamajigs. I'll be posting my 100th post with my next post and all the details will be revealed then. This is just my way of giving back to the blog community who I have learned so much from. I've made some great friends through blogging and just want to say 'thank you' in blog lingo; best way to do that is have a giveaway! I'll also have new blog bling as I'm having a custom blog design installed and I'm totally excited about that!

Happy Thanksgiving!
