Happy Thanksgiving

To all my USA friends who will be celebrating the day. Welcome to a scheduled post.
Before I share the last of the holiday cards, (this one is for Mr), let me welcome a new follower, who is also one of my Christmas Card Club team members: Shaz B (also known as Silverwolf) . Thanks for becoming a new follower Shaz, and I hope all my blog readers will pop over to say Hello, and take a scroll round your fabulous blog. Shaz does some amazing projects and we're so pleased to have her join our card group. Her blog is fun to read, and just browsing the projects she's shared, will be a joy. goes:

 This image was colored with Copics, WoS for shine and some white gel pen for the highlights. Die cut with a Gina Marie loopy square die. The faux mats were cut by tracing the outline of a S/B square that would create a slim margin, and of course, the insides of the mat are always cut out, saved in the snippets box.

- The leaf buttons were from the stash, and as I look at the photo, why didn't I think to tie some twine through the eyes? Oh well, the photo always shows up the boo-boos that I didn't see earlier!

Hope that all of you who celebrate our Thanksgiving holiday will be sharing a nice meal with those whom you love the best, sheltered and warm from any storms that may be in your area. Let's say a prayer (or give a thought) for those folks who don't have family nearby, enough food to eat, or dealing with some other Life's problem on this day.

Thanks for stopping by, and Big Hugs coming your way. I HOPE this is the last of the Thanksgiving cards. I do still have a couple Fall motif cards, but now it's time to think of Christmas cards. And..uh-oh, got some birthday cards to finish!

    What a very super card, and such a great design.
