Hi Everyone!  I made a Thanksgiving card for my nephew in California who I more than likely will not get to see this Thanksgiving.  I used this digi "Quirky Turkey" from Doodle Pantry that is free with any purchase.  Don't you just think he's the cutest??  I used sketch from Challenge #42 at Sketch by Carly for the layout of the card. 

I used a 5" x 7" cardbase and covered it with black cardstock.  I then covered the black with a slightly smaller square of patterned orange paper.  I printed out the color digi and framed it in black.  I then cut out a oblong frame using Elegant Edges (yes, I had to use it again - just can't seem to make a card without the cartridge.  The card for tomorrow uses it too, oops!!)  I popped the image for more dimension.  I then cut a corner border and used Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch.  The sentiment is from Doodle Pantry too, framed in black and popped.  I then added a little bling to add more color.  A girl can never have too much bling!!!

I think this digi made the cutest card and I think Nathaniel (my nephew) will really like it.  He appreciates creativity!!

Well, thanks for stopping by!!  Mom and I love visitors and comments - please come back tomorrow!!  Until another day, God Bless You!!  Donna  (p.s.  Miss you, Mom - have fun and remember, River City!)

Ta-ta for now!!
