Happy Thanksgiving - Tuesday Morning Sketches #212

I'm back with a second card for the current sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches - the stamps so generously provided by DRS Designs arrived while I was off (not enjoying) camping.


The stamps that I chose to work with this time around are Thanksgiving themed - as I've said MANY MANY times, autumn is my favourite season. No mosquitoes. It used to be for the gorgeous foliage, and the crisp air...now I just like the fact that I can go outside without DEET.



Supplies: stamps from DRS Designs; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; banner die from Wplus9; classic small circle Nesties; scrap orange card stock; Timeless Twine; embossing folder from Cuttlebug; Bic markers

It was a horrific camping trip, it really was. The whole week has been fairly miserable, actually. I try not to wish time away, but this is honestly one week I am happy to see the rear end of. 

How's that for cheerful? lol. Keeping it real, folks.

 Head on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog & play along before Sunday night for a chance to win a prize from DRS Designs :) 

xoxo,
Jessi

Such a bright, fun card for autumn. Which is not my fovourite season, but I will grant that the lack of mosquitoes is a plus. And now it's the weekend... so that's gotta be better, right? :)

Beautiful card! Your embossing is gorgeous and I love your colored image. I totally agree with you, Autumn is my favorite time of year too. Even though camping was miserable one day it you'll look back and it will be a cherished family memory.
