Well I just had to use little miss mermaid Anya again :) lol. And the flower is from the set Cupcakes, from Pink Poison Stamps!

Anyways, the inside says Happy Thanksgiving!!On my card I stamped leaves for the background on the really rust paper, with choc chip ink.

You're my best bud Turkey card!

This card was designed for todays FS challenge over at SCS. Todays FS is EbethNeu and this is the card I cased

On this card I needed to change two or more things, so I changed the colors, and the stamp. I only used a sentiment stamp" You're my best bud" from Queen Kat Designs. The Turkey I made. I learned how to make this turkey from our SU card club, isnt he cute?????? I did add a bow to my card, and change the shape that the sentiment is on, it wouldnt fit on the other. Directions to make this cute little turkey are below. Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!!!!
To create the turkeys feathers:

Step 1: count five scallope, and fold that portion of the circle down, as shown to the left.

Step 2: Turn circle over and mark the center at the top and the bottom, now count two scallops, and score from there to center. Like shown. do that on both sides of the circle.

Step 3: fold flat edge down from each side so folded edges line up with the middle.

Turkey card you will need:

Choc chip: 1 3/8 circle for the body and one scallop circle punch for the feathers.

More Mustard: 3/4 circle for the head.

Real Red: 1/4 circle for the buttons and one scallop circle for feathers.

Old Olive: scallop circle for feathers.

Basic Black: 3/4 square trimmed down for hat, double circle punch for eyes.

Pumpkin Pie: Boho blossems for his feet and a petal from one of the flowers for his beak. Adhere feathers to your card , and glue all punches to form a fine feathered friend!!

Mermaid Anya "Thank You"

This is another card I did with the Mermaid Anya Stamp from Pink Poison Stamps.

I stamped her in craft black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then watercolored her with the new in color Pacific Point from SU. I also watercolored her hair with a brown watercoloring pencil, her skin is done with a copic marker(pinkish white ROO) I used gems in her hair, an the gem on the bow is covered in beads. I dyed the ribbon with the Pacific Point color, and also used that color on the background. To make this background I used the cuddlebug folder, and inked it up on the inside, then added my paper and ran it through the cuddlebug. I love the look of the paper when its embossed and also has some color on the embossed area. the sentiment Thank You is also from Pink Poison Stamps , its from the Sentiments set!

Home Sweet Home!! (Miss You)

This is my second card for todays challenge over at SCS. My other card for todays challenge is the post below this one. On this one I used this darling little puppy from Pink Poison Stamps. It is called Home Sweet Home. This set was just released on Nov 1st.

I stamped him 3 times, once on white,then on the blue dp, and again on the craft dp. I then cut the puppy out, and then the bunny and paper pieced them together on the white. I colored the bed in close to cocoa, choc chip, and barely banana. Next I stamped the border for the sentiment, I used a pen to ink it up so it wouldnt have the sentiment that was in the center. I wanted to add a different one. The flowers on this card have beads in the centers of them, and last I added the bows to the top, and on the sentiment tag. For the tutorial on the medallion here is a link to Becca's Tutorial.

What do you think????

Thanks for looking, and have a nice day!!!
