Shelly's Images Challenge

Good Morning All!

It's time for a new monthly challenge over at Shelly's Images 
and our November Challenge is:

GIVING THANKS!

What are you thankful for today?
I think I am most thankful for my wonderful husband and amazing family!  
Without them my life would have no meaning!

Using Shelly's 'Thanks' image.

I just love the colors of Fall and this fun image by Shelly worked out perfectly for my very FALL THANK YOU card!  I've embossed the background with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and was actually using up some left over leaves/bow that were on my worktable.  Coloring was done with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and a little fussy cutting I felt was required to really make this sentiment POP!

With Thanksgiving only a few weeks away, I also wanted to make a card to send to dear friends of ours so
 I decided to use two more of Shelly's Images ... Pilgrim Girl and Thanks Sentiment 2.


This image was also colored with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I chose to mat my image on extra long black cardstock, the simply wrapped, twisted & tied in a bow two narrow satin ribbons for my embellishment.   Viola!  Card complete!
