Thankful Thoughts - Next MHK Design Release

     Day Three in the August release from MHK Designs and Mynn has given us a fantastic set perfect for Thanksgiving or any other "thank"ful occasion, including sentiments for simple Thank You cards.  We all know we're going to need those over the holidays.  :-D  You can see a photo of the complete set at the bottom of this post.  Here's my card using an image and a sentiment from the "Thankful Thoughts" set.


     I colored the cornucopia with a combination of ProMarkers and Copics, then die cut it with an oval die from QuicKutz.  I used oval dies from that same set to cut the mat, the sentiment and the mats for it.  I found a die that's been in  my collection for a while but which I'd never used and decided this was the perfect card design for it.  The leaf die is made by Die-namics.  I used it to cut two different colors of CS and then offset them.

     Both the ribbon and the dp are scraps from my stash.

     Challenges:
Colour Your World

     I haven't used the turkey image yet, but I already have plans for it bouncing around in my head.  At the moment, I think it would make a fabulous sepia tone, vintage card for Thanksgiving.  Don't you agree?  Maybe I'll do that card for one of my Designer Inspiration posts on the main MHK Designs blog.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Fall cards are my second favorite, next to summer. A very calming card to enjoy this morning. I want so many of the MFT die cuts but shipping bothers me unless I buy $75 worth...wow! How do you do it?
