Thanksgiving with The Stamping Boutique

Happy Thanksgiving!
I hope you're having a nice day with your families and have a long weekend to relax and enjoy yourself.

Both of my cards today were really fun to make, this first one uses A.J. The Pilgrim by The Stamping Boutique and is colored with Copic markers.  I was interrupted several times while coloring A.J. so the process took a couple of days and I don't remember all the marker colors but I did try a new combination for his pants and jacket, E70 & E71.  The sketch layout is Mojo Monday 166, the papers are Memory Box Black Bird patterned paper and Stampin' Up! Really Rust with Basic Black and Neenah Solar White.  Spellbinders dies were used to cut out A.J. and the sentiment which I picked up as a freebie at Sentimental Sunday's just the other day and I added three brads to the strip of black card stock to mimic the sketch.

Are you ready for a little desert after A.J. and his turkey?!
This is another image by The Stamping Boutique, it was a freebie last weekend during our Thanksgiving blog hop.  I've enjoyed coloring pumpkins so much this year!  It must be the Copic markers...  Both of my boys love pumpkin pie so this image was just fun for me!  

Here are the Copic markers I used:  C00, C1, C3, C6, E41, E42, E43, G21, G24, YR04, YR07, YR09, YR15, YR16, YR18.   The sketch is one I've used before but I couldn't find it in my sketch file to share with you exactly where it's from.

Joanne (jojot) said... so glad I stopped by to answer a question you left on my blog...otherwise I would have missed these fab holiday wonderfully am in awe

anyhoooooo.....I am pretty sure the embossing folder I used on my mid layer is a Sizzix emb. fldr.....I will check the next time I go down to the stamp cave, but I really think that is the company....I got it on my very FIRST visit to a Hobby Lobby when I was in North Carolina last month...

Thanks so very much for stopping by my blog. I truly appreciate the kind words and encouragement.
