Very Thankful

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know I did. We had my husband's family over and I cooked. I was finally smart enough to do a lot of things ahead of time, so everthing went very smoothly. We pigged out on turkey, mashed and sweet potatoes, stuffing, corn, cranberry sauce and lots of outrageous desserts. My favorite was the apple crisp pie....YUM!

This was a card I created a few weeks ago after my friend Mary Jo sent me this beautiful stamped image. I think it's by Just Rite. I don't have any copic markers, so I tried my hand at coloring with Distress Inks and a water brush. I think I did ok for my first time. After I colored the image, I sponged the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I mounted it with foam tape on some DCWV paper from the Indian Summer collection. I had already embellished the paper with some paper tape from K& Company, as well as some glittered foam leaves and some colored Dewdrops I had in my stash. I mounted the plaid mat to a standard size DCWV card....the card was also from their Indian Summer collection.

In addition to being thankful for my family and friends, I'm also thankful for the opportunity to start a blog this year, start my own You Tube channel, and meet a lot of wonderful people who share my passion for crafting. All of you have been so kind and supportive these past few months, and I couldn't ask for anything more!


  1. I have got to try coloring with my TH inks, I saw him do this technique at Scrapfest (yep,had to rib you about and it looks easy. And you did such a fantastic job with this card, makes me think I need to get busy and try it.

  2. I like your card. I have been trying to determine if I want to use it on a card or on a scrapbook layout. Using my TH Distress Inks of course. No Copics in my house.
