I love Thanksgiving. I send a lot of cards and I love that the focus is on "blessings". So the new stamp set, Thanksgiving Blessings, is just perfect!!
I love that sentiment. I love the saying itself and I love the fonts. The mix of basic and a bold script is so eye-catching. The sentiment also gave me a chance to show off some fun new dies. The pie is Little Bits - Pumpkin Pie and the pitcher and base are from the new Sitting Pretty - Fall Accessories with the shelf from the original Sitting Pretty set.
Here's the supply list for this card and be sure to keep reading for another sneak peek!
Continuing with Thanksgiving events, I used the same color scheme to create place cards. I am using the previously released Take Your Place. I used Versamark ink to stamp the new Autumn Leaves Background. Then I used the new Little Bits - Turkey Dinner to add a bit of decoration.
I wanted to make these four cards appropriate for my family. I had to use the full turkey for my husband because since both of our sons topped his own 6'4" stature and started eating us out of house and home, my husband's favorite lament is that he doesn't get the big piece of chicken anymore (or turkey!)
My youngest son is totally into pumpkin pie so I used the new Little Bits - Pumpkin Pie for him.
I actually haven't finished mine or my oldest son's cards. Mine needs a wine bottle (long story!) and I was shocked to realize that I don't have a TE wine bottle or glass, but soon to be remedied with the purchase of the Wine & Dine die set. I just haven't decided what to do for my oldest son. Although he's 21, his palate is still childlike so I thought about using Little Bits - PB & J and/or Little Bits - Mac & Cheese and/or Little Bits - French Fries. I liked that idea but he does like traditional Thanksgiving food so it might not make sense. I'm also pondering using the Stacked Coffee Mugs die or the Little Bits - Coffee Cup in a copper foil paper. My new 21-year old spent some of the summer trying to figure out if he liked alcohol. Virtually everything is a big "no" - except he does like Moscow Mules. I haven't had the heart to tell him that what he likes is the non-alcoholic ginger beer because the splash of vodka he adds can't be more than a teaspoon!
That's all for today but definitely be sure to come back tomorrow!! There are more birthday festivities and many, many more prizes!! I'll definitely have a birthday card, but there's also a new sympathy product and a really big flower!!
