THANKFUL

Hello my crafty friends,
Today's challenge at Craftitude Challenges is to use leaves. The image is from Milk Coffee and is called I love you mom.  My mom passed away only 7 weeks ago.  For Thanksgiving she and I liked the  turkey wings and the crispy skin over the breast. If she had Thanksgiving at her house she got the extra skin and if it was at my house I would get it. That is, if she didn't get to it before me while I was doing something else. LOL.  Mom's can be the strength of a family unit and the Darice Wood Design Embossing folder inspired me to use it as the base of the card.  Have I told you lately that I love my Silhouette Cameo. LOL. I love the way it cut the leaves.  I used a digital sentiment and frame and left a white edge to give it depth.  I also added some pop dots to a few of the leaves.  The bow was in my stash and I attached it with a glue dot.  Of course I used my Spectrum Noir Markers. I used IG1,2,4 for grandma's hair Skin color TN2,FS1,2 little girl the same. Her hair GB2,8, their outfit colors, LG2,IB2,CR3,PL1.GB5. For more inspiration from our design team stop over at Craftitude Challenges and enter for a chance to win fabulous images from our sponsors. Thanks for stopping by today and leaving your comments. I love reading them.

  1. I was sorry to read about your mum, mine died 5 years ago and I miss her all of the time. Like your mum, she was the center of the family and a good cook. I think it is a good thing to remember the good times and the things that made us laugh.

    Your card is lovely and the image is so sweet. I like how you have used the wood grain embossing folder with the autumnal leaves.

    Thank you for sharing your work with all of us at Crafty Boots Challenges.
