Thanksgiving Thursday Week 3

Hello & Happy Thursday!

Hope your all having a great day!
I bet you all thought I forgot about my Thanksgiving Thursday series that I have been featuring every Thursday in November. No, I did not forget. I'm still under the weather but each day my cold gets a little better! Also my hubby has been on vacation the last 3 days so i've been trying to spend time with him as well. He went Tuesday for his Pennsylvania Drivers License and yesterday he went for his car insurance and tags for the vehicles. Today, he put new brakes the whole way around on the truck so it will pass inspection which is tomorrow morning! It feels GOOD to be a Pennsylvania resident again! :)

So, my cards for today's Thanksgiving Thursday were highly inspired by my VERY good stampin buddy & friend, Vicki Burdick! I miss her muchly since leaving Missouri but we are planning a visit with one another next spring and I can't wait to hang with her again! Anyways, everything on my cards she has done on many of her cards recently and of course I had to stalk her!

I used Soft Suede cardstock for my base and added a layer of Vanilla and a piece of DSP from the Spice Cake pack. I used an old Vanilla tag that was cut with the Tag Coluzzle Cutter, added my sentiment and sponged it with Soft Suede. I ran a piece of Pumpkin Pie thru the Cuttlebug with SU's Square Lattice EF then punched out 3 Wide Oval Punches from SU and sponged those with Cajun Craze. Layered those and added a piece of Old Olive punched out with the Horizontal Slot Punch that I believe is retired from SU. I hot glued a button on each pumpkin that has a bow tied with gold cord. And lastly, I added a pearl brad with some Soft Suede Ribbon and called it done! I really love the look of these and credit Miss Vicki with them! She does amazing work!!
