The large copper brad is also a find from the Scrapbook Store At Your Door. I stamped the gobble on it with my Stazon ink. Head on over there, and have fun shopping for all your designer paper and embellishment needs, as Julie has a wonderful selection to choose from. If you love doing recipe pages, then you will surely find everything you could ever want or need in one fast and easy stop!! I colored my turkey with my SU inks and an aquapainter, and added highlights with a white gel pen.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I wish you a blessed Thanksgiving filled with lots of great food, and the love and warmth of your family! Happy Stamping!

This card was made with a beautiful stamp set from Sweet -n Sassy stamps, called Elegant Blessings. I used Versamark, and PearlEx for the cross, and added the rhinestones for some sparkle and bling. The sketch is one of the challenges from a previous SCS sketch challenge. I used Stampin' Up! cardstock, and the beautiful DP is from K&Co. The edges of the image and DP were sponged with Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage Photo. What a wonderful theme for a blog hop! Praise the Lord indeed for fabulous friends of faith! I know I have met some very special and faithful people through my blogging experience, and those friendships continue to grow! I've been truly blessed with wonderful friends of faith! May you be blessed on this glorious day too!

As I told Kathy, I've had this image colored up for a while, but I was waiting on the perfect sketch to come along and speak to me, and this sketch spoke. The image is PK-247 Goodnight Moon , from Peachy Keen Stamps. I thought this would make a great little boy baby card, and I love the way it turned out. I used some stickles on the craters in the moon and on the star for some bling. The ribbon at the corners is an element in the design of the sketch. As always, I colored this with my SU inks and an aquapainter using Canson watercolor paper. I added those pretty green pearls for yet some more bling, and I used my Martha Stewart zig-zag/embossing punch for the border on the striped DP. That crinkly blue paper was a find at my LSS, which is Ben Franklin in these parts, because I'm 80+ miles away from the closest Michaels, JoAnn's, or Hobby Lobby. You have to make those trips count when you go, and believe you me... I DO!!! LOL!!! Anyway, that paper is wonderful to work with. I bought an assortment and this is the first, but definitely not the last time I'll be using it!! I LOVE it!!

Well, today is the day for the November Kit Cat Club reveal. Our wonderful hostess, Michelle chose some of the most adorable images and themes for each of us, and I had a ball creating and coloring this card!! As if you haven't guessed by now, my holiday is Valentine's Day. Michelle sent me a kit with images, gorgeous DP, die cuts, and the fabulous stretchy velvet and organza ribbon. This stuff is not only gorgeous, but a dream to work with because it's stretchy, and fits around the paper as snug as a bug in a rug!
All I added to this card was the card stock, and some rhinestones. To quote my dear friend, Michelle, I gave these Sugar Nellie Manga girls some sassy love color. I wanted a little texture behind my image, so I shaded the center of the oval with a little ink, and roughed it up a bit with my stipple brush. I love to use the paper itself for added texture, and this is a wonderful velvety look that I thought would go well with that gorgeous velvety Pink Paislee ribbon (Tinsel Town) collection. Sometimes I get a little gel pen happy, but I love the sparkle it seems to add to images/frames, and I can't quite help myself, so humor me... okay? *WINK* LOL!!
