Happy Belated Thanksgiving Wishes

I actually made a couple cards (on time), got them mailed (possibly not on time), and then totally neglected to post it and send my wishes to all you wonderful friends!  So sorry, I hope to grow up and be better soon...  Meanwhile, I better get this posted at least while it's still Thanksgiving weekend!!!

I must admit, you might have to use a little creative imagination to get this card.  I wanted a pumpkin, which i didn't have so I used the closest thing I had (well kinda...)!  Here she goes, remember to freely use your imagination!


Do you get it?  Well, here's my story:  I really fell in love with this card from Sandie, I just really loved the white and kraft, and the simplicity of the whole thing! It just spoke to me the day I saw it.  So here's to you, Sandie!  Like I said, I didn't have a pumpkin, so I used SSS Single Roses dies to emboss a "pumpkin" and add some leaves for a pop of color.  Hindsight I think the embossed background distracts a little, and definitely defeats the "simplicity" factor, but I was trying to go for a quilted warmth.  I also think my photo isn't the clearest either!  Sorry!  Here's a clearer close-up:


I did want to say that I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and you're resuming life after the "stuffing"!  Thanks for popping in!

ETA:  I've been invited to join in at the latest Time Out challenge by the very sweet Sandie, so here goes!  Thanks, Sandie!!!

Hugs,
TK
