IO Thanksgiving

Happy Tuesday, and Happy Veterans Day!  Be sure to thank any veteran you see today; his or her service is valuable beyond measure!  And speaking of being thankful, Impression Obsession has a Thanksgiving wishes challenge; you can see it here.  Now, I only have a couple of IO stamp sets, and none have a Thanksgiving sentiment, so I am hoping that I can convey the emotion and feeling of Thanksgiving with images only:


I have used these little inchies before…they’re some of my fall favorites! They are from Autumn Squares, CL138.   I stamped them in Memento ink and colored them with Copics.  I stamped some leaves from the same set in Cajun Craze, added a Summer Starfruit ribbon and a bit of border stamping in Early Espresso!   The border is from an older IO set and I cannot find a name…I know it was a fall seasonal set and there were similar sets for the other seasons….maybe someone knows the name of it!


Thanks for visiting today!

Although she doesn’t nap every day, sometimes, she actually asks to lay down; then I know she is really tired!
