Today I just want to wish all of you Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m counting my blessings… I know we don’t celebrate in the UK, but maybe we should… I used my favourite Oxide colour combination and simply concentrated on saying Thanks.


We don’t yet have snow, though some parts of the UK have, but it’s certainly cold… so I thought I’d link these to the Simon Says Stamp challenges.

SSS Wednesday – Baby, It’s Cold Outside

I stamped the snowflakes and the words in Versamark, embossed in white powder, then sponged three different shades of blue Oxides over, finishing off with the large Woodware die cut snowflakes embossed in Stampendous Frantage Chunky White powder (which is also scattered over the background) and a couple of EK Success snowflake punches, with some Nuvo Sparkle drops.


SSS Monday – Let it Snow

This is a Michael Powell design from Do Crafts, coloured with Promarkers and spattered with Dylusions White Linen.


I’m also linking to Art Every Day Month – AEDM

It’s not too late to join in – it’s fun to see what people share each day.

Thanks for looking

Back soon

Awesome cards Cath. The one with the snowflakes reflects the coldness of the day [well here in the NE] its was what we call shivering weather today.

Baby it's cold outside! BRRR, but I like all three of these cards. I really like the last one with the houses so beautifully colored. Even the shading was perfect.

Forgot to thank you for the Thanksgiving wishes. It is my favorite holiday with no expectation of gifts or other pressures. I am grateful you thought of us in the states with this gorgeous card.
