Happy Thanksgiving and a new Paperplay Challenge

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone, hope all my American friends and family have a terrific day and wonderful weekend.  Thinking of you all across the miles and miss you lots.

This week's Paperplay Challenge is set by DT Member Sandie and we would love if you would play along.  This week she would like you to follow this sketch. You can flip/rotate it as you wish but you must be able to see the original sketch.   Have fun!!

Here is what I came up with for this Challenge - A Thanksgiving Card, (of course).

Supplies: Alison Spelman's Zeke the Turkey, Rough Riders Digital kit by Sande Krieger,
Nov 09 freebie kit by Eric Hernandez, Gold Pearlescent cardstock, buttons by Jane, paperclips and embroidery floss

I loved using Alison Spelman's digital image in last week's challenge so I used "Zeke the Turkey" this week - another great image available from StretchnBubbles.  I used two other digital kits in the card - both available free from

The tag is from a Sande Krieger free digital kit - "Rough Riders" - available here and the sentiments are from a Erica Hernandez November 2009 Freebie available here.

The buttons were a gift from my Hero Arts FLICKR friend - Jane, which she made herself.  Thanks for stopping by, hope you will play along.  Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Thursday!

Deirdre, I love your card this week! It's really stunning. You are mega productive this week aren't you? The card from yesterday was so cute - I love the trinket pins you used!
Hope you are safe from the floods in Cork.

Great cards Deirdre, and love the pink and black of yesterdays card. I have had a really busy week, no time for crafting and I'm getting withdrawal symptons. Hope to have some time at the weekend.
