Give Thanks-BBTB2 Challenge

The challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2 this week is to create a card using the Give Thanks from the Thanksgiving cartridge.  I just got my cartridge this week so I wanted to play along.  The other project I wanted to do was an octagonal easel card.  I decided to combine the two.

I started by creating a cut file in Cricut Design Studio.   I know, I know.  I have a Gypsy but I let it intimidate me (one of these days I'm going to surprise all of you and say, "This is something I created with my Gypsy").  Anyway, I'm digressing again.  Heehee.  I used George and Basic Shapes for all my card shapes except the "Give Thanks" which is, of course, from Thanksgiving.  My finished card is 5 1/2" tall.
The Cornucopia and the inside sentiment are digistamps from Doodle Pantry.  I used Promarkers to color them.  The paper is from a stack of DCWV paper Donna and I shared and she has the name of it. I don't think you can see it but the green paper is flocked.  I cut the leaves from another sheet of the same stack.

I like my Promarkers more and more.  I was really pulling for my Donna to win the complete set of Promarkers Enfys from Going Buggy was giving away.   My Donna didn't win but Nana Donna did.  Isn't that funny?  We are so happy for you, Nana Donna.  You are so creative.  My Donna said, "Mom, I guess we need to be more specific next time which Donna we want to win."  LOL

Thanks for visiting our little section of the blogoshere..  We love your comments.  God Bless You!!!!  Peggy 

 (If anyone wants the cut file send me your email address and I'll send it to you.)



  1. Peggy,
    Your cards just keep getting prettier and prettier. I love everything about it, especially that it is octagon shaped. I have never seen one like this before.
    Thanks so much for sharing

  2. Beautiful Peggy! I love the shape of your easel card and your coloring is just lovely!!!
    hugs & blessings!

  3. so pretty, I love your color work on the digi stamp. Very nice!

  4. Beautiful card Peggy, love the colors and the Digi. I love my Design Studio too but I've been using my G a bit more lately, I still have a hard time with the screen on the G (I like the Big Picture, lol) and Love my screen on DS, so if it's something easy I've been using my G. Maybe if you start with easy simple things you may use it more. I hate the thought of spending the money on it and not using it, lol! Thanks for joining us this week at BBTB2!
    ((Hugs)) Theresa

  5. Your card is beautiful, as always. I love DS, too. I have a Gypsy but it just doesn't seem as easy to use as DS. I'm glad I have it because all my carts are stored in it.

  6. Cute card. Thanks for joining us on the BBTB2 challenge. I don't have a gypsy YET....and I use my Design Studio sparingly. Shame on me. I must get with it.

  7. Wow, an octagonal easel card. I never would have thought of that. This is just beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing it with us at BBTB2.

  8. Just gorgeous Peggy! I love the shape and the colors and all the little details. If you want to send me your gypsy I'll figure it out for you:) *lol* Hugs...

  9. Peggy, this is absolutely GORGEOUS! Love the unique shape of your easel and the coloring of your image is beautiful! I hear ya about the gypsy. I haven't even loaded all my carts in it yet. Good ol'DS will always be my fave! (What do they say about old dogs? LOL) xxD
