I thought a child-like card would be fun, all kinds of distressing on the panel with Deacon, just like someone who is learning to color would do.  Some hearts surely go with this card.

Thankful Dragonflies

The crafting community is so much smaller these days that even though I live in Australia and as such don't celebrate Thanksgiving, I feel I can still celebrate through my crafting friends. So in the spirit of the holiday here is a lovely bright Thank you card.

Thanks a bunch

November really is a time to give thanks....


I've used Bugaboo digital stamp for my main image.  I've die cut with a stitched rectangle and die cut the "thanks" and added a little sentiment.

And we thank Bugaboo Stamps and One Happy Cut our lovely sponsors this month.

November 11th Thank You

Hello,

It's Remembrance Day in Canada and Veterans Day in the US today.  So I can't help it but to add a poppy flower on my card.  Let's have a look.



I used the Snowglobe Butterfly digi stamp from Bugaboo and made a shaker card.  I resized it to fit where I want it on my card panel (removing the original sentiment), printed it, colored it and carefully cut the globe part out.  Next I cut multiple sets of small butterflies using Impression Obsession Dies - Butterfly Set, glue them to the panel and created faux embossing with them.  Then I stamped the sentiment.  Next I created the shaker element, adhered the front panel to it, added the poppy flowers and die cut leaves on the front.  And voila!



Our sponsors this month are: 

Bugaboo Digital Stamps

and

One Happy Cut
Supplies for my card:

Hero Arts clear stamps - Delicate Blossom
Hero Arts Fancy Dies - Spring Branch
Coloring pencils
Little Things from Lucy's Cards sequins - Fruit Sorbet
Ranger Liquid Pearl - Onyx Pearl



Hope you'd join in the fun and play our challenge this month:  Be Thankful or Thank You.

A Thankful Turtle

I think this turtle is thankful he's not a turkey.

This turtle has had lots of things to dream about and be thankful for (one, not being a turkey).  I used the Dream die-cut rather than a Thanks die-cut because of the way the swirl looped over the eyes of the turtle.  I thought that was rather fun.  For the multi-colored die-cut, all I did was use Copic markers to color in two tones of brown, red and green.

Be sure to join the challenge at Die Cut Divas.

Supplies:
Bugaboo Digital Stamps  Turtle - Thanksgiving
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Distress ink - Carved Pumpkin - distressed the orange oval pane
Check out One Happy Cut oval dies for the perfect one for you.

Fancy Sunbonnet Winter Birds

November is Thanks/Be Thankful theme here at Die Cut Diva's, and our wonderful sponsors are-


And here is my project:



I love using my Cricut (Cricut Access, Photo Fun Holiday Memories) to make backgrounds for my images! Such a cute image, too! I did use a new-to-me product called Amplify, by Neon. You add the liquid where you want it, then hit it with the heat tool to make it puff! Be careful, because you can overheat it and discolor it. It comes in a lot of different colors. I used the Fancy Sunbonnet-Winter birds image by Bugaboo stamps, and colored it with Copics.

Make sure to enter for a chance to win a great prize!
