cQc #269 ~ Thankful for You!

Hi there friends!! Can you believe Thanksgiving is just two days aways! I need to get busy with my dinner preparations. It will be a much smaller group for us this year. We're down to 7 from our usual 12 or 14. But I enjoy cooking this special dinner every year, all of my family's favorite traditional dishes. What a blessed day it will be to have our little Sweet P with us for her first Thanksgiving! I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon yesterday with her and her beautiful mommy ~ love love my girls!!

I'm sharing one more Thanksgiving card for the final ColourQ challenge of November. And what a darling inspiration photo Arielle found for us! The Tag You're It challenge was my inspiration this week. I'll also be linking this one up at the Catered Crop. Did you hear that Linda has decided to close the doors on her challenge? Retirement is keeping her pretty busy! 




I've let several stamps from Precious Remembrance Shop's {Fall Colors} be the stars of this card.  Orange Twine and Marshmallow Sequins (4mm & 6mm) from Pretty Pink Posh provided me with the perfect embellishments. I decided to mimic the grid pattern of my stamping with an embossing folder from DeNami Design. And that just about does it, hope you like it! 


Have a delightful day ~Lisa
