Happy Thanksgiving

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit The Charmed Life Blog this Thanksgiving Day 2019.
I have a busy day ahead with cooking for our family. I hope your day is a blessed one whatever your plans may be. My menu for today is a roasted turkey & stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, brussel sprouts, corn casserole, cranberries, pumpkin pie and pumpkin roll. Some of it I made yesterday and will just need to be baked today. The turkey I am getting ready to put in my oven this morning.
But, before all the busyness starts I wanted to post a Thanksgiving card. This one I made for the color challenge #762 on Splitcoaststampers. I was the hostess and I chose merry merlot, daffodil delight and Cajun craze. Optional was to make it Fall or Thanksgiving.
For my sample, I turned to the Stampin'-Up "come to gather" designer paper and created a Thanksgiving card. The layout is one that I saw on Ann Schachs blog and I used it for my card.

The stitched leaves are a die from CottageCutz, and I sponged with Cajun craze and daffodil delight inks for some color variation. Used the gorgeous grunge stamp set and stamped some ink scatters on the larger circle.

The card base is daffodil delight, and I sponged the edges with cajun craze and daffodil delight inks to tone the yellow down a bit.

I scattered a few Cajun craze enamel dots and tied a small bow with Cajun craze linen thread to complete my card.
Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time...….God bless.
