Thanksgiving 2014

Happy Thanksgiving!

I had grand plans this year to hand color and add stitching to my Thanksgiving cards this year. Sadly, I only got 10 done, however that was enough for the Homebound ministry this month. 

The set is Thankful Song from Our Daily Bread Stamps.  I used the verse inside the card.

The image was colored with Copic marker (E31, E33, E35, E37, YR12, YR16, YR18, R24) and the background is blue chalk. The cardstock is PTI Terracotta Tile, Vintage Cream and Dark Chocolate.  I added some stitching with my sewing machine and ivory thread.  The twine is from Fun Stampers Journey.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
