another thankful Thursday adventure

I was saying (last week) that I have a friend who posts Thanksgiving pictures on Facebook every day of November, because Christmas shouldn't start until after Thanksgiving.  She's not a crafter - crafters know you have to (ok, want to) work on Christmas all year!  But, I've been helping out a little by linking to Thanksgiving songs on Sundays and posting cards here on Thursdays.  This week I found color inspiration at Fab Friday and a sketch at Nacho Average Challenges as well as encouragement at Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers, Pile it On, Stampin' Royalty. and SU-Only Challenges.  And while we're linking up to challenges, we may as well check in at Addicted to Stamps and More!, where anything goes this week, don't you agree?
stamp set -  Truly Grateful; ink - Versamark, Baked Brown Sugar; card stock - Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss, Baked Brown Sugar, Very Vanilla; Big Shot with Autumn Accents die



I'm thankful that I have time to post this evening, I've once again been running behind, but I do have a greeting to send each of our children's families for Thanksgiving, now!

I like how you used stamping for one of the layers of the sketch, this looks wonderful! And I agree with your friend, let's not steal the focus from Thanksgiving, I for one love turkey day before going all crazy with the jingle bells :) Thanks for playing along with the Nacho sketch challenge this week!

I really like how you used the larger stamp for the element of the sketch instead of a cardstock panel. Great Thanksgiving card and I agree that Christmas stuff should start until after Thanksgiving...except for crafting because genius takes time lol! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
