Thanksgiving

Oldies Card-HouseMouse
Hi again. Back with another card to share. This is a card I made several years ago, with the same image I just used in a post this morning. Found it while hunting for something else - which I didn't find (am I the only person who does this? Please tell me I'm not!!!) This card was done several years ago, before I 'got into' Copic coloring.  It was done with Prisma colored pencils, using the Gamsol technique. Showed it to DH, and asked if he thought I'd improved my cardmaking skills. He said he couldn't really tell any difference - that he did like the card done with copics better, but that he liked this one too! Now is that diplomacy or not???!!! Perhaps a left-handed compliment???Who knows! This one was done after looking at a company stampboard in one of our local shops that has since closed. Can't take any credit at all for the design...except perhaps that I didn't have all the supplies used on the stampboard sample, so I had to improvise a bit. Anyway, posted this one just for grunts & giggles. Again, have a wonderful weekend. Hugs to all of you, and thanks for visiting.

I like the layout on the card downstairs best but kinda like the cute meeeces with their red eyes on this one. I have been toggling between the two pics for ages!!! Have A crafty weekend my friend. Hugs Mrs A.

Mary, I like the previous one done with Copics and that layout you used - and the frame around the image - BUT, I also love this one done with the Pencils! It's amazing that you get two different looks depending on what you color them with.
CUTE image too!! Two great cards.

I love this one, Mary, because of the too funny "bite" out of the corner! (Not to mention your usual awesome coloring whether by Copics or PPs!)

Now that's a darn cute card Mary! I love the bit out of the corner of the card, too cute! I love House Mouse stamps although I don't own any, just love seeing what people do with them. I think I have to agree with your hubby, your cards looks good no matter if you use Copics or Prismas!!

This is adorable, Mary! The pumpkin pie looks delicious! I'm glad to see that those little darlings are using spoons.
