 Hello All,

For today I am playing along with ModSquad and Cardz 4 Guyz card challenges. Here in the United States, it is only two days till Thanksgiving and my turkey is still frozen solid in the frig. Please tell me I'm not alone? Anyway, here is my card for today, enjoy!

This scene is a stamp from Hero Arts. It is part of their peek-a-boo series. I enjoy this stamp so much because of the dinner spread. A sense of community and family surrounds the dinner table. The word 'Happy Thanksgiving' is stamped on white card stock and scallops diecut all around. I like the way this sentiment is laid out. At first glance, it seems like three separate sayings. Very appropriate for the holiday.

I colored the kraft cardstock using Prismacolor pencils. It seems like an ideal coloring tool for kraft paper due to its waxy nature. It covers very nicely. 

I focused on the star of the meal, the turkey. 

Challenges Entered:

Thanksgiving is, by far, my favorite holiday. It is time to catch up with family, friends, and others in my community. It is time to celebrate culinary and cultural traditions. It is time to get the spandex on and eat, drink, and laugh. 

This year, however, is different. Like some of you, this year will be spent apart from those we love most. Yes, we will Zoom, Meet, or however you video chat. Somehow though, it is not the same as actually seeing them, giving them a hug, and telling children how much they have grown. I will miss that very much. They are here in our hearts and for that, I am grateful. I wish everyone who is reading this and beyond blessings, comfort, and contentment while we wait through this pandemic. I wish you happiness, love, and healing during this difficult time in our lives. I am thankful for all of you out there reading this message. Please stay safe, stay healthy, and please try to stay hopeful. This is my wish for you.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. Lots of good crafting vibes headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and please stay safe and healthy.

I thought you'd used a piece of DO instead of a stamp here, great work!
Thanks for sharing at Cardz4Guyz and Happy Thanksgiving. :)

Lovely card. My family will have to meet on Zoom as well. I will miss the hugs but am also thankful there is a way to be together even if it is virtually. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
