Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

Hi, guys!  Thought I would share the Thanksgiving card I made for my parents.  A little story behind this card: it was pointed out to me by my mother that I seem to have an affection for "vermin" cards.  I wasn't sure what she was talking about when she mentioned this to me, but after explaining how I make her a lot of cards with mice on them, I got her point.  I never realized how many stamps I own with various mice in various forms of dress.  So, when making my parents card I had to use this stamp set.  I am sure my mom will appreciate it.

Stamps: Inky Antics
Paper: Gina K Designs, Echo Park, Inky Antics
Ink: Memento Black, Stampin' Up 
Misc.: Ribbon, Copic Markers

I normally don't bother showing the inside of my cards, but since I used honey pop paper for the inside, I thought you might like to see this.  It really gives it a fun 3D look and a little surprise to the receiver.

For the leaves, instead of using a stamp for the leaves on the black paper, I used some fun leaf buttons I had in my stash.

Hope you enjoyed the card I shared today.  If you are celebrating Thanksgiving, I hope it is a joy-filled one.  I have so much to be thankful for, and I count my blogging friends and readers among them.

Until next time!
