Happy Harvest 33

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, November 25, 2010 @ 9:24 AM | , , ,

Hi there! Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends and blogging friends in the US! I have so much to be thankful for and count my blessings everyday. Thank you all who visit and take the time to leave a comment on my little blog hosted on the world wide web :) Since I baked all the pies and did most of the prep work last night along with my hubby, I had a chance to make a card in celebration of today.
I inked up the pie image from Peace and Plenty then colored it with a combination of Copic markers shown below. 
I stamped an ornate frame around the pie using an image from Very Vintage Labels No. 1 using a S4-161 Labels One die template to cut/emboss the image. I pulled out Melissa France's Kitschy Kitchen DP from my stash as I found it quite fitting for this happy Harvest card.
Our house will be quite full with family today: my step-children, my son & his girlfriend, my sweet sister Tina, my niece & 8 yr. old Great niece will be joining Scott & I for the day. We have to prepare a variety of meals. My son, Jerry & his GF April are Vegan so they will be eating ToFurkey as their main course. My step-son, Connor does not care for turkey so he will be having fried shrimp. My step-daughter, Meredith pleaded for ham so I sort of cheated & purchased a yummy ham from the Honey Baked Ham store :) and Scott, Tina & I will be enjoying smoked turkey that Scott prepared :) Here is a pic of my "famous" apple pie that everyone loves:
Thanks so much for visiting today & no matter where you are in the world, I hope you have a wonderful day! Big Cyber hugs to all of you :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No. 1, Peace and Plenty
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™Nestabilities® S4-161 Labels One, GC-001 Grand Calibur
Ink: Copic Markers
Patterned Paper: Melissa Frances

Your card is wonderful, Mona, and I'm wondering if that apple pie has lots of cinnamon like my Mom always put into hers? LOL! Hope you all have a wonderful time on this day of Thanksgiving!!!

I sure hope there is pie left over. We had pumpkin pie and I don't like it at all. SO I didn't get pie this Thanksgiving. Your apple pie looks wonderful girly.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and all your family.
The card is just darling. That paper is perfect for that stamp. :)
