Thanksgiving Lineup

Good morning everyone!! Hope you are having a wonderful Friday morning!! I have got to clean my dirty house but first I want to share a couple of cards I made this week. The first one features the adorable Thanksgiving stamp from Denami...it was colored with copics and I used the Splitcoast Color Challenge colors of Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin, and Old Olive. The finishing touches include seam binding, buttons, twine, lace, sewing, and distressing. I have also entered this in Denami's Theme Challenge to use animals,   I Break for Challenges to use a Fall theme, and Crafty Boots Challenge to use things with wings. 
Recipe: Stamps: Denami,  Paper: White, Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Fall designer Paper from Karen Foster, Stella Rose dp by My Minds Eye,   Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black,  Accessories: Seam Binding, Buttons, Twine, Sewing Machine, Nestabilities, Lace

I made this card last weekend for the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast....the inspiration web store Stef picked was the Rifle Paper Co.  Since I have some little boy birthdays coming up, I went with the Circus Party Invitations as my inspiration.
No stamping on this card but I did used some circus chipboard, stickers, and tickets instead. TFL!!
Recipe: Paper: White, Real Red, TaDa Creative Studios Patterned Paper called Balancing Act
Accessories: Imaginisce Tickets, Banner Border, and Tent Diecut, Clown Sticker

Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!!!!

OMGosh, Joan, you've been stamping up a storm. The first card is just too too cute and the second one is so adorable!!

What a beautiful color combination! The Thanksgiving card is lots of fun! With your inspiring ideas I think I will try to break out of the traditional scenes I always seem to fall back on! The clown and circus tent works well with these colors, too. What a great invitation that would make. It's always fun to stop by! Hugs!

Both marvellous cards, Joan, and a joy to look at. the stamp on the thanksgiving card is fabulous, love it so much and makes me smile. We have buttons as the theme at Dream Valley if you fancy adding it to that challenge too, by the way.

Hope you got your house cleaned and can enjoy your time now....have you still got the grands there? CoB
