Happy Thanksgiving! 8-)

Hi All! Just wanted to pop in real quick today before all the Food, Festivities & Football commence to wish all my Crafty Friends out there in Blogland Celebrating today, a Very Happy, Blessed and Super Yummy Thanksgiving! ;-)  I will be heading out to the Fire Station in just a bit as my Sweet Hubby had to work today! So I am bringing lots of Yummy pies and the Fellas at the station are doing the rest of the cooking! Whoo Hoo! Ya gotta Love that! lol..;-)  Though I do have all the fixin's for my Hubby and I to have our own little mini Thanksgiving tomorrow on his day off.. ;-)
I sure Love how these turned out! I ended up needing a few more cards this year to send out to extended Family & Friends & whipped them up a few days ago. I thought they'd be especially Perfect to share with you all today! ;-)
These were pretty quick and easy.. My main BG panels were created with TE's Choice Kraft kraft CS painted with my SnowCap paint dauber, ran through my CB with the Harvest Blessing EF, and then sanded a bit so the words would show through.  The remaining BG panels were made up with a combination of various old scraps of Fall dp I've had in my stash for years now, ( I believe I got it from Michael's.) along with TE's Choice Butter Cream CS and the help of an MS border punch. My Lovely fall leaf sentiment panel's were created with the help of my trusty Cricut & the Paper Trimmings Cartridge. The My Craft SpotHappy Thanksgiving Stamp set sentiments were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. And to finish them all up I inked all my edges & did some shading with Vintage Photo Distress ink and added some Pretty Vintagey seam binding bows created with My Craft Spot's Gorgeous Crinkle Ribbon in Maple Leaf... 8-)  See, pretty easy peasy, huh...8-)

Hope you all have a Wonderful Holiday filled with the Blessings of Love, Laughter, Friends, Family, and lots of Yummy Turkey too! ;-)

Thanks so much for visiting!
