Cardz TV Go-to Galz Challenge #39 "Thankful"

Happy Friday my crafty friends!  It's time for a new Cardz TV Go-to Galz Challenge!  This challenge is called "Thankful."  We were to create a card for Thanksgiving.  When I think of Thanksgiving I think of getting together with family, delicious smells emanating from the kitchen.  Oh I can just smell Tom Turkey roasting in the oven, the smell of pumpkin pie.  Okay, enough, makes me want to cook a turkey now!

For my card I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Thankful for you."  I masked the "We gather together" and the Count your blessings" off and stamped each word on a Decorative Label punch from Stampin' Up.  For the "Turkey Time!" I used "Thankful for you" and the "Fall Fun" set.  "So Thankful" and Happy Thanksgiving came from the "Thankful for you" set.  The papers on the long panels as well as the green patterned paper in the middle came from a Mary Engelbreit 6 x 6 paper pack I found in the $1.50 bins at Michaels.  The basket weave paper on the pop out panels is from Doodlebug.  The house, cute little hedgie, squirrel, turkey, cornucopia, and pies are from a Doodlebug sticker sheet.  I just love them!  I colored some jewels with a brown Sharpie.

What do you think?  I hope I've inspired you to join our Challenge.  Just make a card, layout, or other craft project for Thanksgiving.  You have until noon EST Thursday November 14th.  Once you're done, head on over to Mary's blog and enter your project.  Mary is giving away a set of her stamps to the winner.  I hope you check out the other ladies' blogs for more inspiration.  You won't be disappointed!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I would really love to hear from you!  If you are new to my blog, I hope you become a follower.  Have a great weekend!

Lots of Hugs,
(The Queen)
