Happy Thanksgiving!

We are wishing all of you, our blogging, crafting, card-making friends, a very happy Thanksgiving Day! By now you are probably done eating the turkey dinner...maybe you already have the leftovers safely stashed in the frig for a midnight snack! Here at our house we finished dinner about 2:00 and I cleaned up for an hour, then I spent a few precious minutes in my craftroom finishing my Christmas card....until the crowd started asking for pie! Now they're all satisfied again so here I am! Sandie, Guest Designer for November, and this is my last  (well, maybe 2nd to last!) post. This month has flown by and its been great fun participating in the SweetStamps challenges! I'm so thankful to the DT and SS owners for the priviledge of joining them in showcasing the amazing products at their SweetStamps online store.
Today I'm showing you the card I made for the current weekly challenge. #145 "The Holidays".

The main image and sentiment are SweetStamps stamps called "Cardinal Pair & Warm Wishes", a set of two stamps. I colored the images with alcohol markers and colored pencils and then added sparkle with some Stickles. The delicate die cuts behind the image are a Memory Box die called "Catalina Wreath", also from the SS store! The card stock is a variety of scraps I've had in my stash for quite some time. Love to use up those scraps!
Please scroll down to see the current challenge and all the inspiring samples from the talented Design Team!
Then join in the challenge for a chance to win a generous prize from SweetStamps.
Thanks for stopping by today! Savor those last bites of pumpkin pie!
Hugs, Sandie!
