Time to Start Thanksgiving Cards


Thanksgiving is going to be here before we know it so I do need to get some cards made. I don't get to spend Thanksgiving with my daughters so I want to send them each a card. They are the blessings in my life.
This card is based on the sketch at Cardpositioning Systems. It is a sketch for a long card but I have these envelopes (recycled) that are 3.5 x 6.25 in brownish tones - thus my card is 3.375 x 6 inches. It is still a rectangle shape. Also on Our Creative Corner - the challenge is to use a silhouette stamp.
Stamp - Stampendous
Ink - ColorBox Chalk Ink - Chestnut Roan
Card base - Basic Grey
Stamped Image on Basic Grey
Patterned paper, Adorn It by Carolee Creations and Creative Imaginations
Rub On - Bo Bunny
