I Can Explain!

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!

We have so much to be thankful for and we don't have to look far to see all the wonderful things around us.  I have been off work this week and had some time to relax and spend some time making some cards during the day while hubby is sleeping.

This card did not turn out like anything I had expected.  I have had this doily laying on my desk for sometime wondering how I could use it.  Well, I finally figured it out.  The image is by Stampavive, Sara Kay, named Noel Joy.  After making the front, I was looking around to find the inside sentiment.  Yet another stamp I wanted to use, but hadn't figured out yet.

The image was colored with copics and distessed with Tim Holtz distess ink.  After matting, I used the sewing machine to attach the image to the card front.  I also embossed a post mark (paper inspirations) in the top left corner.

Copics used:

Hat/Jacket:  R81, R83, R85, R89
Holly:  G20, G21, G24, G28
Bow/Dress:  YG93, YG95, YG97 (this is becoming my favorite green)
Mail Box:  W5, W7, W10
Post:  E53, E55, E57, E59
Shoes:  E21, E25, E27, E29
Hair:  E44, E47, E50

The inside sentiment fits the card well.  It is by Printwork Collections.

I hope you have enjoyed today's post.  Count your blessings and all that you are thankful for with the upcoming holiday.

Thank you for looking.
Blessings until next time!
