Dry Embossed Fat Pants Card

Even though there is still lots to do getting ready for the big meal Thursday, I was able to "hide" in my craft room a few minutes today.  I needed one more Thanksgiving card!  I used an older embossing folder by Sizzix to create a fall scene on the lighter orange cardstock panel of my card.  Next I stamped the sentiment/image with a dark orange ink (Technique Junkies Fat Pants) and matted it.  The arrow die cut is by Sizzix.  I'm linking this card up at:

Thanks for stopping by and remember to wear those elastic waist pants on Thanksgiving....wink.

Gobble On Card

Yep, it is that time of be searching in our closets for the FAT PANTS!  I know I will need them after eating the dressing, turkey and pecan pie on Thanksgiving!  This fun card uses a stamp image from Technique Junkies (Fat Pants).  I stamped it in a dark gray ink by Gina K Designs on orange cardstock.  The "gobble on" die cut was done with my Silhouette Cameo (Gobble On #335366).  The arrow die cuts are by Sizzix.  I'll be linking this card at:

Thanks for stopping in...and remember those elastic pants on Thanksgiving!


Be Thankful Card

After spending the morning cleaning out cabinets above our washer and dryer, I was able to make a Thanksgiving card...which was way more fun!  I used a fun stamp set by Jane's Doodles (which I found out today is closing...sad news).  The word die cut was done with my Silhouette Cameo (#99985 Be Thankful Phrase).  I'm going to link this one up at the following challenges:

Thanks for visiting...and remember to be thankful.  I'm thankful I finished cleaning out those cabinets...wink.


Thanksgiving Cheer Turkey Card

I'm working on my last Thanksgiving cards to mail to friends this week.  That is between cleaning out cabinets and getting the house ready for Thanksgiving. I'm also doing ahead of time cooking/baking to freeze so I won't have as much to do Thanksgiving.  So it is very nice to escape to my craft room for an hour or two to relax and make cards....almost like resting...wink!

The cornucopia is from Sweet 'n Sassy (Grateful Heart Set) and the sentiment is by Art Gone Wild (Words To The Rescue Thanksgiving).  The turkey die cut was done with my Silhouette Cameo (#280201 Turkey Silhouette) and then I used my old Fiskars paper crimper on it.

I'm going to link this card up at the following challenges:

Thanks for dropping by...and remember to sneak in your craft room to get away from all the Thanksgiving chores...wink.

Tea-Rex Hate Christmas Card

It is the last day of the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I am doing a few cards to link.  It is raining and I am enjoying the day in my craft room.  There is also a new challenge at Christmas Kickstart Challenge that sounded like fun.  So I made this card to fit both.  I used stamps from Rabbit Hole Designs (Tea-Rex).  I computer generated the part of the sentiment which looks like a vintage typewriter font.  Thanks for stopping by and remember if you hate Christmas, you can always soak in a teacup...wink.
