Thankful Raccoon

     Isn't this the most adorable little raccoon ever?  It's for the progressive challenge this month at Gerda Steiner Designs.

     Because it's already October (where DID this year go?), I chose a fall color palette and colored the image with my ProMarkers.  The entire card is made from scraps and bits.  The bottom border piece was cut with a die from Spellbinder.  The pumpkin were done with an Impression Obsession die and the leaves are cut with a die from Dies R Us.

     Both the sheer ribbon and the yellow gingham ribbon were left over bits in my stash.  I printed, hand cut, and added the sentiment to the sign, turning this into a Thanksgiving card.

  1. Your card is adorable. Love that raccoon. Wonderful die cuts with the image.

  2. I know, how did it get to be October already. But it is my favorite time of year. This raccoon is so cute and you have used him in a perfect way on your card. Giving thanks. Loving those pumpkins in the foreground too. Thanks for sharing this with us at The Mod Squad Challenge this week. Good luck!

  3. Too much fun and cuteness! Love the little raccoon and the pumpkins at the bottom set off the whole card.

  4. Darling is right! But he also looks a bit mischievous - methinks a little like his designer buddy who colored him (giggling). Darling card, and I especially like the wonky position of your panel - it's a wonderful card, Connie! hugs, de
