Thanksgiing is early this year. Do you have your plans confirmed?
Unfortunately my family will not be traveling over to Surrey to my sister’s for Thanksgiving and that’s too bad because my sister makes the best turkey dinner using traditional recipes passed down by our mom, in particular the stuffing. And we’ll miss the ‘turkey dance’. This is a funny, quirky thing my sister does with the turkey in had. She started it to entertain the kids when they were little but some still get a kick out of it.
I usually prepare some of the vegetables such as the brussel sprouts and I traditionally make one of the family’s favourite casserole – my Curried Cauliflower. Yum, yum! I have to mke two of them so everyone gets their share plus some for leftovers, which seldom happens.
Still a little unsure what we will do this year. Probably something small for my husband and daughter. And I will make the curried cauliflower dish as my daughter loves it.
So now for the card. I love the Vintage Leaves and coordinating framelits on page 125 of the Annual catalogue and the coordinating Leaflets Framelits on page 213.
The greeting is from the very popular Painted Harvest stamp set introduced in the Holiday catalogue on page 49.
I used Crushed Curry as the card base and stamped the leaves by first inking with a base colour and then using a dauber, tapping a second colour on top. I then stamped some of the leaves using Versamark ink and embossed them with Copper embossing powder.
I really enjoyed making this card and I hope you enjoy. All of the products used can be found in my online store.
Happy Stamping everyone.
