I literally couldn't wait to show you this card! I even showed my hubby! haha!

Did you see that Krista put up more images on her Etsy site?  OMG! I had to get SEVERAL!!  These characters make me smile the whole time I am coloring them.  I don't know, it is something about the big cheeks and big eyes! haha!  I missed the challenge for last week.  Anyhow, on to my card.

I went to Hobby Lobby and bought this suede trim, perfect to match her little outfit.  I snipped some feathers from an arrangement I have at the house (I know, naughty) and added a ceramic acorn to bring on the Thanksgiving feeling.  I even put a little sentiment on the inside that reads "For thy bounteous blessings, we give thanks O Lord".

Now, don't anyone die of a heart attack or anything, but I used copics on this one! I know right!! Quite obvious I need more practice, but hey, I was in the mood to use those little pricey things.

Oh yeah! I also snipped some beading off some trim that sits on my dining room table (just a tad though) haha!  You can see I used the amazing flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I used a Lt. Mocha Curly Rose, 15mm 2-tone Chocolate Brown open rose, and 10mm Old Gold open rose.  
Papers are a mixture of stash, the one I remember the name for is the Pion Designs with the butterflies (love those).

Giddy over a stamp, silly, I know, but it is the small things in life right?! haha!  I'm super excited to play with her Christmas ones that I bought!  I would love to hear what your favorite digi of Krista's is.

Thank you so much for visiting and don't forget if you want to enter my candy, it is the post below this one! Also, today is a new challenge at the LOTV Challenge be sure to check it out!

Have a wonderful day!

    LOL, I think it's hilarious that you're sneaking bits of trim and embellishments from other parts of the house. Shhh...I've snipped the button off of a sweater for a card before. ;)

    Your coloring is fantastic. You don't need any practice. In fact, maybe you could teach me!
