Thanksgiving is around the corner, so its time to start on your "Thanks" cards. I just got this stamp set for a gift from my upline Ann Schach for a recent promotion. Happy Dance!! Who don't like getting stamps for free! Thank You Ann!  

Do you ever think of a card in your sleep or when you are trying to sleep... will this is one of those cards. So it was a quick card to do for my card club this week. I just love the color combo!

I cut out the brown part by hand, so that the deco framelit would fit behind the image.

We made this card at club today. When my friend Jenn was talking and not working on her card, up jumped my cat Friday onto her project area. lol He did not want to leave for nothing.! lol

What do you think he is saying?? Tell me in the comments section.
Here he is saying "Pet Me"
You can see that Jenn was trying to make this card! lol

"No you can't make any cards I want some attention"
He is one BIG CAT!

"Ok I am good now, time for a Nap"
Thanks for Coming By
Leave me some love in a Comment

A fabulous card, Shirley! I LOVE the colors and the texture. I am so glad you love this set! I am so proud that you are a member of my downline :)

LeAnne said...

Oh my gosh, this is just gorgeous, Shirley! Sorry it took me so long to comment! I love the layout and your turkey is so handsome! I love your kitty pictures, too. Reminds me so much of my Pumpkin.....I could never figure out what she was saying, except "meow!" Which I think means "I love you"! Thanks for using the PP colors this week!
