Good morning! It's Roxanne here with a Thanksgiving themed project for you today. I think I'll put these out on our placemats for our Thanksgiving morning breakfast (along with these cute little place cards I created in September as well). Something for each of us to complete for things that we are thankful for. I will use them within a mini album I'm creating for another project. It will be nice to look back to see what the boys were thankful for at their ages of 5 and 10!
I have listed all products at the end of the post. I'll explain my process briefly and include close up photos as well!
I made five cards for each of us with 4 different designs. I figured we could each choose one design and think of five things we are thankful for and write them down.
I cut the cards from a simple white cardstock down to 3"x4" and rounded all four corners. I then cut out 20 little craft circles using the largest circle in the Let's Bokeh die set. Inside those, I stamped with black ink the little turkey leg, corn, knife and fork, and pumpkin pie from the Happy Feast set and colored them in with my colored pencils.
I also cut out quite a few of the stitches leaves from various paper I had in my stash. I ran those through my Xyron and included a grouping of them in corners on the cards. I then glued down my colored cutie images on top of the leaves, and stamped the sentiment "I'm so thankful" on each card in brown ink.
They needed something else, so I went back in with various little bits from the sets listed below and added in fun elements to the cards with my Scattered Straw (what's a more perfect fall color than that??) in no particular order and just had fun with it!
I love how they turned out.
What are YOU thankful for? I hope all those celebrating have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.

Happy Monday, Heidi here, I hope you had a great weekend, I am sharing with you today a very simple Thanksgiving card to put you on the Thanksgiving mood this week. I know lots of us are really busy with Thanksgiving preparations and other holiday related tasks, so I thought you might appreciated a quick card, let me show you the card and will tell you a little bit more about it.
For this card, I used the "Thankful Mice" mini stamp set by Lawn Fawn the "Thanks scripty die" and the "Polaroid Lawn cuts" by Lawn Fawn. I applied a soft shading on the card panel through a stencil, I also apply some soft shading to the Polaroid frame.
I colored the little mice using Copic Markers, and I used some orange dotted paper from the "Let's Polka in the Dark petite pad," I adhered all the elements to the card using foam and liquid adhesive.
I hope you enjoyed this card, I wish you a lovely and happy Thanksgiving!

Lexa here today with a Christmas card for this season. Let's get started!
I made this background using Argyle Backdrops in Lobster and Walnut, and it looks so pretty! I love how it turns. Then decided to take the color scheme for the rest of the card.
I started with a tag, watercolored the background and colored the border, then stamp the "warm wishes" sentiment with Lawn Fawn Walnut Dye Ink. I tied a single cord twine in red and white for an extra cuteness. ;)
The gingerbreads are from Sweet Christmas set, colored them with my Distress Ink Markers and diecut them. I set a glass of warm chocolate from Love You A Latte between them in mint color. At last, I think a border on the left side will be nice, so I die cut a brown cardstock with my medium size scalloped border, and red fish tail banner with some peppermint sweets stamped in it.
I hope you like today's card! Have a sweet day.

Hey there! Audrey here! Today, I have a magical Christmas tag to share with you! The theme of the current Lawnscaping Challenge is "out with the old"... so I dusted off some of my older Lawn Fawn favorites to whip up this tag.
I started by by diecutting the largest star from the Puffy Star Stackables die set out of red cardstock and also out of the red and white bokeh paper from the Let's Bokeh in the Snow 6x6 paper pad. I adhered the patterned paper to the cardstock to give the tag a little more stability. I used the Puffy Clouds border dies to cut clouds for the bottom of my star, and also cut another layer of clouds from vellum. It is a bit hard to see in the photo, but I used spray adhesive on the white cloud and dipped it in gorgeous crystal glitter. I stamped and colored the castle and dragon from the Critters Ever After stamp set, and then die cut them with coordinating dies. I wanted the castle to look a bit like it belonged at the North Pole. I added the tiny Santa hat from the Baaah Humbug stamp set to the dragon, and finally, a scattering of snowflakes cut from white card stock using the Mini Snowflakes die. To finish things off, I added a bit of red tulle and some Peppermint Lawn Trimmings.
That's it for me today... Thanks for stopping by! :)
