Thanksgiving Thursday Week #1

Hello & Happy Thursday!

Hope everyone has survived Halloween night!
We had a great time at our good friend's house handing candy out but it sure was cold!

Anyways, today is a new day and also the start of a new month!
November & Thursday's can only mean that it's time to bring back my Thanksgiving Thursdays, when I make a Thanksgiving card every Thursday up till Thanksgiving Day. With the hussle & bussle of all the holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving & Christmas) being jammed packed into the last 3 months of the year I have tried doing my edition of Thanksgiving Thursdays for the last year or so that way I have a few cards or gifts to give out when Thanksgiving comes. I do so much with Christmas that usually Thanksgiving gets lost in the mix! Feel free to play along if you'd like and let me know so I can stop by and check it out!

So, with that being said, here is my card for the first Thursday in November. I also used yesterday's Sketch Challenge #409 for today's card. Here is the sketch & my sample....

Thanksgiving Thursday Week #1 Card:

Stamps: French Foliage, SU Sentiment
Ink: Cajun Craze, Early Espresso
Cardstock: Cajun Craze, Not Quite Navy, Neenah White, Well Woren DSP
Accessories: Leafy Branch EF, Early Espresso 1/8 Taffeta Ribbon, Gold Beads, Dimensionals, 2 Sided Tape

By Thanksgiving this will give me a few cards to hand out to friends & family!

Well, that is all for me today!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

What a great idea, Wendy! Beautiful card! And I just noticed the embossing which makes it even better!

The leaf and sentiment are beautiful on this pretty card! I love the checkered panel with the leafy embossing - what a great mix of autumn greatness!
