Thanksgiving and Christmas

Eek. This is way more scary than Halloween. Did you realize we are two weeks away from Thanksgiving and what, maybe six weeks from Christmas.  Time to get to work here.

My card is a Thanksgiving card, featuring a technique I highlighted about two months  ago. The leaves were diecut (using a Memory Box die) from some more paper I made with that technique. The sentiment is from Mark's Finest Paper. 
The card is for these challenge:

Sum More Fun -- mood board 14 (inspired by the theme)
Die Cut Divas -- thankful/thanksgiving
Double D -- feeling fallish
Simon Says Stamp Monday -- Thanksgiving
Word Art Wednesday #306 -- anything goes

Also, Tracey McNeely has started her 25 Days of Christmas Tags. Every year I get inspired, but I've never taken the time before to actually put that inspiration in action. This year, I am making tags, and here's the first. It was inspired by Debby Yates of the Simon Says Stamp DT on Day 1 of Tracy's event.
Look for more tags in coming days.


  1. Your tag is so pretty and sparkly! Love the trail of stars behind the deer. (Your card is beautiful too, the leaves are gorgeous!) Thanks for joining the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event!
