I wish you all a happy Thanksgiving!
I hope you had a great time with your family - I certainly did. My daughter came home from college and this year we just had a small Thanksgiving - just the 4 of us. We had a delicious meal together. We don't do turkey... we had ham, Brussels sprouts, cranberry quince sauce, mashed potatoes with crispy onions and a salad. Desert was a pumpkin tiramisu - delicious! I took some pictures, but they did not come out well, so I won't bother to post them. I find it quite hard to make good looking pictures from food. I admire the photographers in those cooking magazines - there is an art to it....
I wanted to share two Thanksgiving cards I got - I did not manage to make even one.....I am totally stuck on Christmas cards...
This card is from my friend Susanne
And this card is from my sister. It is so nice to get a totally unexpected card in the mail! Thank you both!
And of course I want to share a card with you:
I am totally in love with this wonderful stamp set from Mama Elephant - Merry Greetings. I have been using it on quite a few cards so far. The star is from Hero Arts. I really like this stamp, but I find it difficult to use. But with this card I am happy. I heat embossed the star in silver and added the gold sequins - they are from Neat and Tangled - I like that they come in matte - very classy looking. I sponged around the star with gold Delicata ink. I also used two strips of gold shimmer paper under neath the star panel and mounted everything onto white card stock.
I made this card for the STAMPLorations challenge - Sequins and stamps.
Simon Says Wednesday challenge - Anything goes
