Eleanor and Pickles Say Happy Thanksgiving

Today is less than a week away from Thanksgiving and it is a time for reflection and a time to be "thankful" whether it be for where you are today, where you've been, or where you're going! Today, Her Craft Kre8tions is reflecting on Thankful!!!

Our brilliant designers have been given this assignment with only a stipulation as to not have a card but to depict something they are thankful for! Easy peasy, right???? OK, maybe not  . . . but sit back a spell, reflect on your own thankfulness while you check out this fabulous line-up:

Lynne -
Kimberly -
Edwina -
Jearise -
Janet -

I am a real rule breaker, and today is no different.  I know Lynne asked for anything but a card, but, I made a card instead.  She eventually changed the rules for those of us who are card makers.

My card today is created using on of my favorite designers, Heather Valentin who draws digis for Scrapbook Stamp Society.  She draws the cutest Eleanor and Pickles digis I have ever seen.  I love them all and plan to have each and everyone of them.

Today, I used the digi Eleanor and Pickles Thanksgiving.

 I colored my digi with my crayola colored pencils and blended using gamsol.  This is a technique I have been using for about six month now and I must admit, I have a lot to learn yet, but I am loving the process.

Once, I completed the drawing it was time to put the card together.  I mounted the digi on brown card stock, and included two 2x2" squares of two tones of orange in the top left corner.  I further completed the card by adding a pink colored rose and some fall twigs I nipped off an old candle right.

This card is way out of my comfort zone, but I do like how it turned out.

There will be a special gift awarded to one lucky recipient who remarks along the way with what they are thankful for this season.

Your next stop along the way is . Please have a blessed holiday and let us show our Thanks.
