Enjoy Thanksgiving

I am busy making Thanksgiving cards. I LOVE this season and this holiday above all others. To make this card, I broke out several new things from my stash: Thanksgiving Dies from Paper Smooches, Pretty Pink Posh Window Frames Die, and these beautiful sequins from Lucy's Cards Shop: The Colours of Fall Sparkly Shaker Selection.
I water colored several areas on a large piece of water color paper in autumn colors. I die cut the PS Thanksgiving icons twice - once from Chocolate Chip, and once from the water colored paper, pieced them together and arranged them at the bottom of the Window frames die cut.  I created a shaker using Jennifer McGuire's No-Bulk Shaker Card Technique that you can see HERE. I love it because the sequins stay (relatively) in place rather than all of them falling to the bottom of the shaker. 

The sentiment is an old Hero Arts stamp that I have had forever. I covered up a little smudge next to the sentiment with a little leaf sequin.  I am thankful for little things that let me fix mistakes!!! LOL!

I am linking my card to the following challenges:



Use 3 of something on your project. I used the three dies from the Paper Smooches Thanksgiving Dies set.

I am thankful that you stopped in today. Have a lovely day!

This is the most 'delicious' shaker I've ever seen! LOVE it! The pie, in particular, is calling my name! Wishing you a most Happy Thanksgiving, my friend! Ours is long past but maybe something 'pumpkin' will come my way on Thursday (pumpkin spice muffin comes to mind...)
