Give Thanks

Hello I'm back again! This is my second post today if you would like to see my Digital Delights post, please scroll down.

Today is a brand new challenge at Dare to Be Sassy Thursdays and the theme for this week is Give Thanks.  It is Thanksgiving next Thursday in the U.S. so we would like to see your creations around that theme or being thankful or a thank you card!  Here is mine:


I have used Uhura Sassy and coloured her with my Copics.  Now I must confess that when I saw this image it so reminded me of some white wet look boots that I used to have in 1971 except mine were thigh length (well I was 21)!!  So I have put lots of Glossy Accents in so they look like the ones I used to have.  The papers are Nitwits Thimbles 'n Threads.  I cut and matted the image with Spellbinders wonky rectangles making a faux nestie for the back.  The border is Dienamics Double Scallop Border and the sentiment done on the pc is cut with Dienamics Fishtail Flags Stax and Layers.  The banner is a Poppy die, ribbon and heart from The Ribbon Girl and pearls from my stash.  Here is another view:


Please pop over to the challenge to see the rest of the DT creations.  The lucky winner will win 2 Sassy images of their choice!

I am scheduling this as I am taking my Aunt out to a Christmas lunch at one of the hotels in Blackpool so I hope Mr. Blogger behaves! Thank you so much for looking, take care xx
