TMS 328 and Thanksgiving
Hello dear followers. It is another Tuesday and time for another wonderful sketch. Before I share the sketch with you, I'd like to thank all of you who have continue to follow my blog over the years. It seems as if the crafting community has changed a bit over the years as many of us have other commitments and responsibilities. I know that my own time is now more limited than it was just a few years ago. So, I do want all of you to know how much I appreciate those of you who continue to visit me through my blog.
Now, on to business (smile). This week our sponsor is Sami Stamps, and our sketch was designed by our own Debbie Foster. Her is the sketch:
I do like the simplicity yet versatility of this sketch. I have used the image Little Acorn Hoot.
I have used this little image before, but it is such a sweet one that I've chosen to use it again with this week's challenge. I colored the little bird using Copic markers, and then I paper pieced the acorn (this is exactly how I did the image last time, but you will note I used different paper combinations both in my paper piecing and in my card). The acorn would have just as easily been colored with my markers, but I liked the additional color and texture that paper gave.
Since this week (Thursday) is the American Thanksgiving holiday, I have used that theme for my sentiment. The fall colors and the sentiment are perfect for this time of year.
Wishing all of you a wonderful week (and for my US friends, a very happy Thanksgiving), and if you have a few free minutes this week, stop by and visit the Tuesday Morning Blog to see the beautiful card the other DT members have created this week.
