The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge

Hello my friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters and I hope you'll come join in the fun!  Today's challenge is an easy one!  With Thanksgiving only 1 Week away, we need to hurry and get those cards in the mail so we are asking you to create with this in mind . . .


We are thrilled to have Shelly Images as our sponsor this challenge and one lucky winner will receive a $9 gift voucher to Shelly's Images store.

Since I am fortunate enough to be a member of the Shelly's Images DT, I am delighted to share not just one but three different cards with you utilizing various SI images & sentiments.  
CARD #1 - Having this image PRECOLORED saved me a lot of time and I don't know that I could have colored it as beautifully as Shelly has with her copics!  I did add the yellow chalk out around the image but that was it as far as coloring.  The turkey is a Cricut cut, the corners were made with the SU photo corner punch and the paper is Karen Foster.
Using "Thanks Sentiment2" image.
   CARD #2 - This beautiful sentiment pretty much says it all!  I simply die cut it with my Spellbinder classic ovals & scallop ovals.  The design paper was a scrap piece (DCWV I think) and the fall ribbon was also in my stash.  A slight sponging of Tim Holtz 'brushed corduroy' was added to the sentiment panel to mute the brightness of the white cardstock.  A Kaiser bronze pearl was also added to the center of the flourish.
Using two images "Pumpkins" and "Thanks Sentiment".

CARD #3 - For this last card I have actually used another piece of the same Karen Foster dp used on my first card.  The striped paper panel is from DCWV.  Corners are from the SU photo corner punch and scrap cardstock.  Three embellishment adorn this creation ... buttons (Bucket O'buttons), Kaiser pearls & Doodlebug Designs Doodle Twine.  OH ... and I've used the COLORED VERSION of the Pumpkins image (so time saving)!

Here are a few additional qualifying challenges I'd like to enter:
