Thanksgiving and Thank You's Revisited

PLEASE NOTE:  This post was taken from my former Paper Kisses and Inky Wishes blog.  I am able to get to them, one page at a time.  And although it will only display one page at a time it will allow me to do a search.  Slow going wading through 365 posts looking for the good stuff!

Is everyone recovering from the big feast? I had a fabulous time with friends on Thursday and again on Friday to help clean up the leftovers and then we gathered for a game of Mexican Train which was more fun than watching a raccoon eat spaghetti.  I think I am still on a sugar high from all the salads---you know, those sweet salads most of the estrogen group is so fond of.  I celebrated with my family a week ago today so I ended up with two Thanksgiving celebrations.  How blessed is that!
I wanted to post one more Fall project before everyone gets too involved in Christmas--- I am still in denial that it is less than a month away, but it's true.  It must be true.  I am beginning to have Jingle Bells playing over and over in my mind.........
Today's Silhouette Sunday project is a set of thank you cards.  Truth of the matter is, I have already used all but two of these to send to some very sweet people who were on my list and are deserving of so much more than a measly thank you card. THANK YOU sweet people!

This set was done entirely with files cut with the Silhouette Cameo.  I added "Thank You" stamped on the leaves and then used a black Copic marker to give a little definition to the edges.  I LOVE lattice and the beaded-edged lattice file was a cinch to cut in multiples as was the pumpkin with those lovely swirls and leaves.  I added a bit of sparkle to the stem with some green Stickles.  I am fascinated with this digital cutting machine and the intricate things it can cut ---- fascinated now that I am not having problems with
 it :-).  Actually the love affair started with the Silhouette SD and having the larger platform just makes it sweeter.  They do have blade design issues but being the company with the best customer support around, they are working on it.
Thanks for stopping by.  You might want to check out the Two Dogs blog tomorrow.  I have a post coming up on freezing eggs.  Hugs, Shawna
