Time To Be Thankful

Good morning and a happy weekend to you.  Hopefully I will be sunning myself in Spain when this publishes!

There is a new challenge for November at Card Makin' Mamas and the theme this month is Be Thankful.  It will be Thanksgiving later this month for our American friends so in honour of that we would like to see cards made with that in mind.  As we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK I have gone with a Thank You card but  I've done it with an Autumnal Theme:

The image and sentiment are from Unity one of their Stamp of the Weeks which I get each week but hardly ever use - no reason just never get the time!!  It has been coloured with Copics.  The paper is MME Indie Chic.  I have embossed the two white panels but no name on the embossing folder so I don't know who's it is.  The tiny borders are Cheery Lynn Tiny Expandable borders which is such a handy die to have.  I used one of my most favourite dies Spellbinders A2 Curved Borders One, I think I could use this on every card!!

Please check Card Makin' Mamas Challenge for some more inspiration and details of the sponsor I do not have these when I am writing this.

Thank you so much for looking today, I will catch up with you all on my return! Take care xx
