Thanksgiving

Good afternoon, and Welcome. I am back on track with making some Thanksgiving cards, and here is one that uses kraft as the cardbase. I had colored a small cornucopia image several weeks ago. Can't just lay my hands on the stamp at the moment, so I don't remember the maker. If anybody should want this info, I'll hunt up the stamp for you. Anyhoo, it's colored with Copics, on a scrap of Copic Xpress paper. The highlights were done with a white gel pen. Image was diecut with S/binders Label 12, sponged with a bit of Wild Honey. I was looking for papers to use, and noticed a BoBunny 12x12 that I had picked up this weekend at The Stamping Place in West Columbia, SC. It's BoBunny Forever Fall Die Cuts, and thought this motif would work well with my image, with the added bonus of being fast to select! The sentiment was by Just Rite Happy Everything Tag Making Kit (JB-09820), stamped in Momento Teal, diecut with one of the dies from the Happy Everything Kit. The cardbase has 3 scored lines, top & bottom, although it's hard to see in the picture. I added some narrow orange ribbon at the top, and I may trim off the tails on the bow. Still thinking about that! Have a great afternoon. My recliner is calling my name after a nice hotdog lunch at our favorite Wally Dog. Met some folks, had a pleasant lunch, ran some errands, now ready for an afternoon nap. And YES, I DO have some things that ought to be done, but this is what retirement is about...doing what you want, when you want, If you can, AS LONG as you can!!!! Hugs. (PS...the prize Mboss mailing was one of the errands).
