Happy Thanksgiving!

Yes! A Thanksgiving Oddball

Happy Thanksgiving from Annapolis!

Do you have any Oddball Thanksgiving traditions? We have a pretty odd one. Since there is never cooking going on at our house, we head to Laurel Park and meet up with other non-cooking friends to watch the ponies run and bet a little. Best part? They give everyone a pie. So we always bring what my husband calls “track pie” to wherever we land to feast on turkey! This year our youngest son and daughter-in-law will be the lucky winners of the pies.

I have to tell you that I debated on posting today. I had decided to post this card to Instagram since it is a Thanksgiving card. I also did not design this card. It is one that I did earlier this month in a card class. My good friend Nancy who is Rowhouse Greetings, teaches the BEST classes!

I am very thankful for the Friendships card making and Copic coloring in particular have brought me.

I assembled my card at home and changed it up a bit. You all know I adore layers so I added some gingham paper to mine, and embellished my envelope!

The diamonds across the top are washi tape! This particular pattern is made especially along with a couple others for The Queens Ink. I do not use washi that often, mainly because I feel it does not stay stuck. But, if you use a bit of Coccoina glue stick on it……bingo! stays put.
