Thanksgiving Whipper Snapper Style!

I have some Thanksgiving cards (yes, that's right, Thanksgiving!) to share with you. They are from Anna Wight's August release for Whipper Snapper and this one is called Turkey Time. I remember the thing I liked most about this one was the dog! I love dogs, so that's not surprising, but I just love that Anna drew a pilgrim collar on him! So cute!
I used Jen del Muro's sketch for this card. I just loved this sketch! The chocolate chip squares and circle were run through the swirls folder. I colored the images with copic markers and the little dog was cut out and popped up on dimensionals. He's so sweet! The dp is PTI's Autumn Abundance and I also used SU's new Dusty Durango cardstock and ribbon. I added gold to the buckles on the boy pilgrim with a Spica glitter pen.

The next card is a smaller 4.25" square. I wanted the cornucopia image to be the focal point, and it was too small to put on a larger card, so I just made it smaller! The dp on this card is from SU's Holiday Mini catalog and it's called Autumn Meadows. It has some really fabulous fall prints in it. I scalloped the edges with a border punch, and used scallop scissors for the sentiment. I added those fabulous glitter dots...I was lucky and had these copper colored ones. This card was done using Beate's Weekend Sketch. I don't know what I would do without all these wonderful ladies out there creating these sketches for me! I'm definitely sketch-challenged!

Thanks for staying with me for these two cards. I hope we're not rushing the holidays...but it's always great to get ahead! I'm going to have a Christmas card for you tomorrow, so watch for that one! We're having a blog hop for the Artful INKables new releases! Please join us for that! And I'll have another blog hop for you on Tuesday from Paper Makeup Stamps. I'm issuing a warning's going to be a monster hop, so be prepared! LOL!! Don't forget to stop by the Whipper Snapper Feature Designers gallery on SCS to see all the cards the other guest designers have done with Anna's new releases! See you tomorrow!
