1st Place Thanks at QKR Stampede

     We've started a new challenge this morning over at QKR Stampede and our theme is "Give Thanks."  My image this week is another crow, but not an albino one this time.  To understand that reference, you'll have to check out this card I did some weeks back.  :-D  He looks nearly delirious to have taken a First Place award so I thought he'd be perfect for a "Thankful" card during this Thanksgiving season.  Image is Digi 14306 "Prize Pumpkin."

     I used my ProMarkers to color the image, die cut it with my largest square die, and matted it with background paper I made with chalks.   The leaf ribbon was in my autumn stash and the ribbons I used for the double bow both I think came from Really Reasonable Ribbon but it could have been The Ribbon Girl.  The leaves are punched and the sentiment is done with a banner die cut and a corner punched mat behind it.

     We here in the US are getting really close to Thanksgiving, only a couple of weeks away now. Our family is busy finalizing plans for a shared dinner and lots of shared gratitude.  I hope yours is, too.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

  3. We are getting geared up for this holiday, which happens to be my favorite, but it does look like this guy has already started by eating maybe too much pumpkin pie and turkey. He looks like he needs a nap and then he'll be up and ready for a second round. LOL Real fun card, Connie.
