I'm Thankful For You

Uh Oh!!!  I just now realized this morning that I had no Thanksgiving cards made with all the hubbub that's been going on with the past couple of storms in the past couple of weeks!!! And, I just realized we're less than a week away from the big turkey!  YIKES!  So what did I do?  I did what any responsible housewife would do, that's what!  I made a card and blew off the loads of laundry that are literally screaming at me to get done ;)

I used the current weekly sketch at MFT for inspiration along with the stamp set from Pure Innocence called Turkey Time.  Just the cutest thing ever!

I used some very old My Mind's Eye dp that I had laying around and paper pieced her little dress with it to match.  The rest of her is colored in Copics.  The flower was layered with some flowers I had in my stash, which I added a button to, and finished it off with The Twinery twine in Flax that I picked up from the MFT store.  This little cutie and the sentiment were then distressed with some Tim Holtz Vintage photo.  I also whipped out my Fiskars Treading water punch to add a little something special. 

Well it's off to make some more and maybe do some  laundry ;)  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
