Give Thanks October 2, 2009

Happy Friday and Fall to all!  I can’t believe that today we are celebrating Beate’s wsc100!   100 fabulous sketches!  Make sure you head on over to Beate’s blog to check out todays sketch.

Isn’t that turkey cute?  So many great things about this card.  The first is that it only took me about 30 minutes to make:)   Second, the stamp with sentiment only costs $6.95….yippee!  This image/sentiment stamp is called Gobble, Gobble (116535) and is in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  Third, the papers, Autumn Meadows Designer Series Paper, are so beautiful with a nice assortment of designs and beautiful fall colors.

I stamped the turkey image multiple times in different colors of ink.  I cut out and layered the different stamped pieces to give more dimension to the turkey.   I could have made this card in about 10 minutes if I would have skipped this step (glad I layered…he looks great with all of the multiple colors and layers).

Want to see more samples for wsc100?  These girls always blow me away with their creativity.  I’m sure you will love what they have made to share with you today:  Cambria, Charmaine, Jenn, Laurie, Lori, and Sharon.
