Giving Thanks at Path of Positivity

     Today I'm honored to announce that I was invited to be a Guest Designer for Path of Positivity in their "Gratefulness" challenge.  There are two wonderful sponsors this month: Kitten Scraps and Scribbles Designs.  This card features a wonderful set (November Set) from Kitten Scraps.  There are actually 3 different sets for November; one with a masculine theme, one with a feminine theme and one that's neutral.  But if you buy it as the "November Set," you'll get all three sets in one!  This is my first time using Kitten Scraps products and they're fabulous!  Great for either cards or scrapbook pages.


I decided on my colors by checking the challenge at Paper Sweeties
and also found myself  inspired to include that particular background dp.

     I combined the boy and girl images before printing and then fussy cut the turkey and popped him up on dimensional dots.  The text papers are also part of the set.  I added the ribbon and tied a bow, then layered on the sentiment.  Fairly simple design but I really wanted to show off the pilgrim characters and not have a lot of distractions.

     Challenges:

     It's windy, the skies are getting dark, and there's a storm brewing so maybe we'll get a few sprinkles of rain out of it.  What a great excuse to stay indoors and get some more crafting done!  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Oh how cute... looks like Amish people :)
I remeber me to our fligth to Seattle, there was a man he ask us (my husband and me) "Do you Amish people?" I was confused... He said you speek like Amish :) We speek an German Dialect (Swiss). The Amish are original from a part in Switzerland and South German and so we can here or there understand...(if they speek clearly, mostly it is a strong english accent in there language :)
So than I want say THANKS for sharing your great card by bastel-traum... Hugs Ute
