Let Us Give Thanks

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. It's been a bit of a busy week here in my neck of the woods. Just lots of little things that tie up days and before you know it the week is over.
I bought some new end tables for my living room. They are a match to the sofa table I purchased 2 years ago. I procrastinated on the purchase and they ended up costing me more than if I would have purchased them all at the same time.
But, I have them now and I am working on finishing off this room. I finally put some wall accents up. Not totally done with this yet but I will be soon. I plan on taking some pictures of everything after it's finished. the photos will be posted on my blog so watch for them. Hopefully it wont be another 2 years to completion (lol)!!
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #453 on Splitcoaststampers. Becky was our hostess and she chose the color trio of always artichoke, baked brown sugar and cherry cobbler.

I took the colors and decided to make one last Thanksgiving card. I am using this week’s MojoMonday 320 sketch for my layout.

My background striped patterned paper is something I found in my stash and it’s a good match for the baked brown sugar. On the long rectangle panel I used the Stampin-Up basket weave embossing folder. I added the scalloped edge in cherry cobbler. It’s the scallop trio die from Verve.

The artichoke panel has some designer paper from an old Stampin-Up collection “holiday harmony”. My sweet pilgrim boy and turkey are a printed image from Darcie’s Stamps. It’s her U-cuts line. They are all ready for card making they just have to be fussy cut.

I finished my card by adding a pennant flag cut from a Spellbinders die. The sentiment is from Verve’s “bountiful harvest” stamp set.
Well that's it for this post. Tiem to get busy with today's projects and household chores. So until next time........God bless.
