I saw the inspiration challenge on Stampin' Celebration,
which reminded me of the white craft pumpkins I bought to decorate for Halloween. Well, my Halloween spirit is gone, so onto Thanksgiving in the nick of time.
My daughter is having too much fun carrying the pumpkins and turkey around, so I didn't want to alter them too much. How about a matching card? Am I inspiring myself?
I was also drawn to the upper left picture, like Rochelle, but hopefully my card isn't too much of a CASE. I cut strips of Crumb Cake cardstock and sponged the edges and used direct-to-paper with Soft Suede ink on the "wood planks".
Edit to add: this project won top 3 on Stampin' Celebration - yay!

And another project... I saw a picture of some pilgrim and indian bears, created by Charity Lawson for the Portland Regionals Workshop WOW. Oh my gosh, I had to make some! I love decorating the house with seasonal Build-a-Bears, and it had been a while. For the sake of my daughter, right? ;)
I used the Scallop Edge punch for the grass (punch, shift a half scallop, punch again), sponged it, and also sponged the clouds with Whisper White Craft ink. This scene card is going right up on the white board.
