I can't believe it's already time for Thanksgiving. It doesn't feel like Thanksgiving. Why? Because of the warm weather (thanks, global warming!) or because I haven't had any time to make HAND TURKEYS (thanks, work) or because I just don't care much for Thanksgiving? I don't know.
I'll be surprised if this post even catches any views- everyone seems too busy updating their Facebook statuses with daily "I'm thankful for..." posts. That's something I'm thankful for- those of you that've not jumped on that bandwagon. Actually, I think I'll go update my F'book status with that and see how many people I can anger.
No, I won't do that- it's the holiday season and I've gotta be nice. So how about I share a little Thanksgiving card that I whipped up during a lunch hour break on an especially stressful day at work, recently?
I am in love with that embossing folder. It's from Tim Holtz/Sizzix, of course. What a great frame! I used a piece of that new embossing folder sized KraftCore paper. How convenient is that?!
I also used four dies (also from Tim Holtz/Sizzix) to make this card:
Okay- so do you have the last two on that little list? Autumn Gatherings and Festive Greenery? They're both Mr Holtz's "Decorative Strip" dies. And they're incredible. If you don't have them- go get them. They're so freakin' versatile. I have too much fun cutting about fifteen strips of paper and then arranging and rearranging and playing with all of the little pieces of holiday decor fun. If you have to choose just one, go with 'Festive Greenery.' It includes some flourishes and different pine-y wreath-y bits of beautifulness that work wonders.

See all those great pieces? I love the tiny leaves and branches on the Autum Gatherings die, too.
I'll be back, soon, with more fun!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
