A happy hello & happy Thanksgiving!


Just a quickie today!   I wanted to be sure to wish you all a happy Thanksgiving – for those in the USA  ~   Hope you enjoy your day with family and friends.    I know I’m VERY thankful for all of you on this Thanksgiving Day!   

This is another from the Stampavie Gillian F. Roberts  holiday collection called Snowman.  (In stock at 7 Kids College Fund!)    I really hope they are planning to release some non-holiday images from Mr. Roberts – I just love his artwork!  



I really like to make cardz with brown kraft cardstock, and to color the white parts with some Smooch Moonlight pearlized paint – the brown paper really seems to make the white paint pop.   I did one quite awhile ago that can be found here.  

I’ve also added some Smooch in Green Aapple   to the tree and some Siren Smooch to the santa hat.   Both scarves were stamped on white cardstock, cut out and attached to the kraft paper image.   The DP is from the Basic Grey wassail 6×6 pad …. it’s so “last year”!    😀



Thanks for visiting today ~ Happy turkey and pumpkin pie day!
