Give Thanks

I feel very lucky that my 14 year old daughter is still willing to hang out with me (sometimes), especially when I am in crafting mode.  This weekend, she wanted to make a card together that we would put in one of the Thanksgiving baskets our Temple is collecting for the needy elderly.  She wanted to color a card with copics--and have me do everything else.  

Here is what we came up with:

Here is a peek at the inside:

Supplies Used (PTI):
Stamps:  Friendship Jar Fell Fillers, Autumn Acorns
Paper:  Dark Chocolate, Ripe Avocado, White, Heidi Grace patterned
Other:  Dies:  Friendship Jar, Mat Stack #4, Photo Finishers, Copic Markers

Thanks for Visiting
