Thanksgiving Harvest Celebration

If you're looking for the Tuesday Throwdown post, please scroll down one post.     

Big, exciting announcement!  First,  Doodle Pantry is doing a mid-month release this month and second, I've been invited back to the Creative Team for another term!  I love Doodle Pantry sets (always have pre-colored images, outline images to color yourself, sentiments, and wonderful digital papers all for a very low price) and I really love working with Laurie and the whole team.  :-D  Don't forget there's a challenge still going until the 24th and, if you use a Doodle Pantry image, you'll get a pre-selected set free just for entering a challenge.

     Today's card uses an image from one of the new releases (Pumpkin Monkey) and a sentiment from another (Pretty Petite Scriptures.)  I'll show you photos of both sets at the bottom of the post.  This is actually my first Thanksgiving card for this season.


     This started as a pre-colored image but I added darker colors to the pumpkin and grasses because I wanted the pumpkin color to be closer to the polka dot ribbon I had already chosen.  It's a single layer card and I wrapped the ribbon around the card front and just tied it into a knot instead of doing a bow.  My blogging friend, Lynn, is very good at doing this kind of tie but I think this is my first.

     Challenges:
Aud Sentiments
Brown Sugar
Crafting at the Weekend
Crafty Catz
DL.ART Thankful Thurs
DRS Designs
Simply Create, Too
Sister Act
Speedy Fox & Friends
Suzy Bee's Bloomin'

     Thanks, Laurie, for letting me serve another term with Doodle Pantry.  I'm so happy to be back.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Elegant clean and simple design, NanaConnie. I never would have thought to showcase just the pumpkin from this set... Love this creative idea. You may be seeing this pumpkin in my future!
