The holiday is almost here! I hope you’ll all be celebrating it together with family and friends. It truly is about Faith, Family and Love.
Today I’ve done a card (6” x 6”) which has different flowers than I normally use. The painting in the frame is a primitive Tole painting of a Pilgrim family I painted last year for a wooden frame where I interchange my painted boards for each holiday. It seemed perfect for this card.
The layer of background paper is from the Wood Effects pack. I shaded the wheat then rubbed some white chalk on the tips to highlight them.
The flowers, wheat and frame are from ECD’s ModaScrap dies. The leaves and berry branches are from ECD, as well. They are more delicate flowers than usual, but work up well.
I’ve also used ECD’s new ‘Craft Drops’ for the berries. (Metallic Gold) Of course there is the wonderful ladybug, but I’ve made her by using red and black Nuvo drops on my Teflon mat, then using white and black gel pens for her eyes and the dots on her shell.
My computer helped me with the words on the frame, and I had a Thanksgiving stamp in my ‘stash’. For the center of the flower I used Yes! glue, rolled into a small ball then rolled in gold/yellow prills.

Bring on the turkey and pumpkin pie! See you next month!
