I see you survived Halloween no worse for wear! Good for you! I'm kinda sad it is over, but I was getting a little tired of making Halloween cards. As you can see, the blog is now dressed for Thanksgiving as well as a new pic of the boys who are always ready to welcome you!
OK Bonnie, you can relax. . .no hiding left over cards from Halloween. So, on with the post!
As I looked through stamps to do cards for this post, I realized that I have horribly neglected my House Mouse/Happy Hopper/Gruffies stamps. So I pulled out the ones I could use for Thanksgiving and here are the cards I made:
This is one of my favorite Happy Hopper images. The apples always remind me of Autumn. Right before I put this card together, I turned and through all the pieces on the table behind me. When I went to grab them to assemble the card, the mat pieces kind of landed like they are in the finished project. I kinda liked the look, so I went with it. I colored the image with my colored pencils and oms. The background paper is from a DCWV stack. I love coloring these images.
Here is the second one:
Another one of my favs for Thanksgiving from House Mouse. I love how they are being civilized by using their little spoons. Again, I colored these with colored pencils and oms. The background is from the same DCWV stack as the one above. Those jewel leaves came from the $1 bin at Michael's. There are 20 of them in a box. What a deal! The sentiment is from Peace and Plenty stamp set by Waltzing Mouse.
Last card for the post is this one:
Again, another great House Mouse/Happy Hopper image for Thanksgiving. And again colored with my colored pencils and oms. Patterned paper is from The Paper Studio, and I didn't notice what stamp set I used for the sentiment. I believe it is from Stampabilities clear stamps.
So, there are the cards for this post.
Pic of the Week
I'm also adding a new feature to my blog which I hope you will like. I'm calling it "Video of the Week". I do a lot of surfing on YouTube, and I find some of the coolest videos, so I thought I would share these that I either find funny, interesting, nostalgic, etc. I promise to only choose videos that are less than 3 minutes long. So here is the inaugural video. It falls under "Nostalgia":I just found this amazing and such an example of how things have changed. Can you imagine Santa selling Camel cigarettes???? LOL
Hope you are all well. Thanks for stopping by. I'm working my way around to your blogs and I'll be seeing you shortly!
Love you guys!
