When the yellow and orange leaves have mostly fallen to the ground and spots of blaze orange scattered throughout the woods can be seen, Thanksgiving can only be a few days away. It's one of my favorite holidays, one of the few that you can enjoy the day by being lazy with your family. The only things you really have to do is reflect on the many things to be thankful for and eat a large meal*, right?
*subject to my own opinion...
CAS-ual Fridays is back, this time with a two-week long competition that allows you to prepare yourself for the big meal and make your thanksgiving wish. The challenge is a sketch that I designed, so I hope that you will have a chance to play along!
We are sponsored by Tradefish Designs. For more details on the challenge, to find out about the amazing prize and see beautiful inspiration from the Girl Fridays, please check out the CAS-ual Fridays Blog!
My card features the beautiful oak leaves from Got Leaves?. I stamped the leaves randomly and overlapped them as well onto a cardstock panel, and then colored each with a marker. A bit of misting and ink distressing the edges finished it up and then I attached it to the card base and tied some string. A stamped sentiment finished off the card.
I can't help be thankful for the little things in my life this week, the sentiment reminds me that I should let others know that I appreciate them. Thanks, The Paper Variety, for calling this to mind today! This little guy is coming to work with me and will be hand delivered.
