Give Thanks

Good morning friends! I hope you are all doing well. I have just one question for you, how in the world can it be Thursday all ready!? I can't believe how fast this week has gone! It's been productive and fun, but has gone very quickly!

Today is a fun day over at Lizzie Anne Designs! These cute pilgrim singles will be released today...aren't they cute!? They sure do make a great couple! You'll want to check out the other few singles too..don't forget to stop by the website and see what's new!
I used the Mojo Monday 106 sketch for this card. I love the colors of fall...haven't used rust in quite some time! So, I used some really rust dsp, and choclate chip cardstock with a splash of vanilla for my color choices today.

I stamped my pilgrims with chocoate chip ink, then colored them in with my stampin' write markers, really rust and chocolate chip with a tad of creamy caramel, almost artichoke and then a tiny outline of sahara sand. I mounted them on a chocolate chip piece of cardstock then again on some really rust cardstock.

I used my round tab punch to make a little rust tab for the left side of the pilgrim layer. I wrapped the tab with some linen tread and added a little chocolate chip button.

I stamped my sentiment--from the October Monthly Mix--with really rust ink and then used my 1 3/8" circle punch to make a perfect circle. I mounted my sentiment on a 1 3/4" chocolate chip circle. I added a rust button tied with some linen thread and then added the sentiment to my card with dimensionals.

Come back tomorrow to see more fun with the pilgrims! Have a great one!!

I wanted you to know that I fell in love when I saw these darling pilgrims and immediately ordered up a pair for myself. Mission accomplished. ;)
