Scarecrow & Turkey Thanksgiving

Wishing you a Turkey Day stuffed with everything good! Happy Thanksgiving

I was out of Thanksgiving cards so when I had my sale some ladies asked me to make some up quick. So I came up with 3 cards that they could order. Got them done in the nick of time!

I used Sketch Saturday #487 for my inspiration. Instead of a circle in the middle I did a rectangle.

1) Nov 2017 Inspirational Card Challenge – theme – Fall, Thanksgiving, Thank you.

Just wanting to remind you that there is only 4 days left to get a project done and entered into Deedee’s Digis World Card Making Day Challenge. It is a tic-tac-toe board and depending on what row you do depends on what free digital stamp you get! And there is also a chance to win a $10.00 gift code to the store with a random drawing.


I played along and completed row 8 – Clean & Simple, Send to someone right away, use a non-freebie image.

Give Thanks

I used Autumn Praises Digital Image from Deedee’s Digis.


  1. October Card Challenge @ – Favorite Category – Recreate a card or sketch you’ve saved in your favorites either on this site, a blog, or Pinterest.  I was inspired by the sketch on the top left of this group –

Love the Colors of Autumn


Deedee’s Digis is sponsoring Sister Act card Challenge that starts today and runs till Oct 16th. The theme is anything goes so come play with us!

Oh I love the colors of Autumn….my house is decorated in them!! So I am loving all the challenges out there right now that let me play with orange, brown, rust, and gold. So I decided to make an autumn card to feature Deedee’s Digis Autumn Blessing Image.

Gourd Vase


I left the inside blank because it could not only be used for a Thanksgiving card but it could be a Thinking of You card or a Sympathy card.

Apple Cider Friendship





When I first saw this digital stamp I loved the Friendship quote because it is so true! Last year friends of ours brought over Apple Cider to one of our marriage groups and my husband loved it! So it reminded me of our dear friends that shared their apple cider. I thought it would make a cute gift to package it and have that saying on there. That is how this pocket card gift came about. I used the Pocket Card Tutorial on Splitcoaststampers. I include the paper slip along with the packet of cider so a note could be written to the recipient (see 2nd photo). And yes that is the yummy cider packet my husband now loves!

I decided instead of the apple I would turn mine into a cup.  I printed out the outline image on patterned paper and cut the “cup” out. Then I printed the colored version of image and cut the cider and the leaves out. I glued them together to get the completed look.

Thanksgiving card for a Secret Pal


Thanksgiving Secret Pal

This card was inspired by the November Card Challenge I’m hosting on and the fact that I needed to make a lady a Happy Thanksgiving card for her Secret Pal. The Card Challenge has different categories and one of them is a Color category. The colors for November were Orange, Brown and Green so I was super excited to find this image, Autumn Critters, at Doodle Pantry. When I saw the sketch at Sketch Saturday #284 I thought it was perfect….I just turned it vertical.
