     I do love sunflowers and when this image by Sandi's Samples crossed my path, I just had to do something with it.  I was fortunate enough to have the card published in Through the Craft Room Door and all the details are available there.  Can you believe the image is also a freebie to magazine subscribers?  Woohoo!  It seemed a perfect image for one of the last of my Thanksgiving cards.

The colors were inspired by the photo at Creative Colors.

     I used ProMarkers to color the image and the sentiment was done using a computer font.

     I'm far too busy this weekend, catching up on a whole long list of things which weren't done while I was sick, so forgive me if I'm not back in my usual routine quite yet.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
