Happy Thanksgiving

If you live in Canada then you know that this is a long weekend!  Thanksgiving long weekend!  A wonderful Fall tradition of Turkey, Pumpkin Pie and Family.  Autumn is one of my favourite times of year.  The colours are amazing and it makes for really great crafting.  Weather you are making cards or a scrapbook page, leaves are a great embellishment!   I made a card back in August using the baby wipe technique on the leaves.  Well I loved those leaves so much I had to do it again! 

I also love the new "Core'dinations Card Stock"  here you will see the Early Espresso. This card stock has a monochroamatic core that when cut, ripped or sanded you will see and makes a wonderful effect!

In this card I have used the Woodgrain Embossing folder with the Card Stock and then sanded it down to really bring out the Woodgrain look. 

The base is Crumb Cake as is the label.  I used Hemp twine (unfortunately it is retired) and the naturals Buttons from the current catalogue.  The leaves are from the Gently Falling Stamp Set.  The Sentiment is from the Thankful For.. stamp set that is now retired.

To create the leaves I folded a wet baby wipe into a square and dropped ink into it. I used Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight re-inkers.  I also added the crystal effects but I am not sure they show up in the photos.
Anyway,  Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian followers!  Hope you have a great, fun filled, food filled and family filled long weekend!
Take care and Thanks for looking!
