Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!

I hope your all having a wonderful weekend! It has been crazy cold and super windy today :(  Just one of those days where you want to snuggle by the fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate or cider, Yum!

I have a quick card to share with you today as I found a little time to craft.  I was in the mood for a much needed break from doing Elmo stuff and decided to make a Thanksgiving card. By the way, Ayra is "1" tomorrow and we have a big day planned with family and friends. I am hoping to post some pictures on Monday or Tuesday sometime so stay tuned!

I had some difficulty getting a good picture of this card for some reason :(  Anyway, here it is:

My card base is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.  The base layer being 5 x 5 along with the next layer at 4 7/8 x 4 7/8 using some paper from Lasting Impressions collection. The turkey is cut from the Celebrate with Flourish cartridge at 4" plus the layers which I embossed with the divine swirls and polka dots folder. The leaves are cut from the  Create A Critter cartridge at 1" and embossed for dimension. I used the Martha Stewart fringe scissors for the grass and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. I used up some scrap satin ribbon for the double bow.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Fantabulous Monday Challenge #136-Fall Harvest
2.) Paper Playtime Challenge #88-Autumn Colors
3.) DL.ART Thankful Thursday-Thanksgiving
4.) Simply Crafts -Thanksgiving
