Well last Thursday I showed you what I was working on. On my desk I showed the Hero Arts Thanksgiving stamp set, and I was trying to come up with a card. Well here it is!
Thanksgiving Day Cards!
This first one was what I came up with. I first stamped the little girl and turkey with Momento ink. I then colored them in using the copic markers. I then stamped the images again on a post it note and cut the designs out. I carefully placed the post it note cut out over my stamped and colored image to make a mask. I then I stamped the the grass on the card and over the post it note. I then stamped my cloud background. Finally I added my greeting. To finish it off I added a dot of the Ranger black enamel on the eye and inked around the edges to finish it off. For the base I stamped the card with brown ink and the flourish background stamp all from Hero Arts.
When I got done with the card I liked it but I didn't LOVE it so I decided to tweak it for my next one.
I am much happier with this one. I guess i like the look more., both are very cute!
So what is everyone doing today? I am getting ready to take the boys for their flu shots and then Michael also has his 2 year check up. After that my mom is coming over and we are going to prepare some of the side dishes ahead of time and then all I have to do is heat them up for thanksgiving dinner. I hopefully then will get a couple of hours in for scrapping!!
Is everyone getting ready for the Black Friday Sales? Where is everyone going to go? I haven't decided if I will go out yet. I usually do NOT go out. I HATE crowds and I can usually find really good buys right before Christmas, but who knows maybe I will surprise myself and go out! I did see some online stores that are having bargins so maybe I will do shopping online.
WOW-yesterday was a busy day for handing out awards. I received 3 of them-one from Carrie, Becky, and Sharla--WOW guys thanks so much for thinking of me and liking my blog. I will be posting my 8 things about myself and passing on later in the week. But I wanted to give a shout out to these 3 awesome ladies!
Thanks for stopping by today! I truly appreciate all your kind comments. Thanks a lot! I will be back tomorrow with a look at what I am working on. Plus I list the top 3 things that I am thankful for! See ya tomorrow!
