Pilgrims

     Another of my Thanksgiving cards showing my own gratitude and this time I used a fun digi set from Deedee's Digis called "We Give Thanks."


     As you can see, I'm back to CAS.  :-D  I'll do my best to be a bit more balanced in my creative styles in the future.   Instead of doing a month of CAS and then one which is really over-the-top, I'll try to intersperse the CAS among the other styles.  :-D  

     There isn't a lot to say about this one.  The image is pre-colored; the dp is from the set, as is the sentiment.  I used one of my ProMarkers to ink the edges of the sentiment and the image.

     Challenges:

     A really short post today but, although I'm on the recovering side of the strep throat, I tire easily and can't sit up more than a couple of hours at a time.  Mostly I'm able to get my commenting done for my DT commitments and then I go back to bed for 3 or 4 hours.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
