I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries.

If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

Simple Pleasures

Good Morning All! Well we are half way to the weekend...which will be sad or me, my son and daughter in law will be back from their cruise and picking the girls up on Saturday :(
I noticed that I had a lot of traffic on my blog yesterday and many you were able to pick up the free images. Isn't it great when you can put a card together with freebies? The image on today's card is also a freebie, it comes in the form of colored clip art, much like the decoupage images that are so popular. When I seen the image I saved it to a word document but didn't save the web site (I can't believe I did that) so I'm not able to give you the link to the web site BUT if you would like a copy of the image just leave me a comment here on my blog with your email address and I will gladly send it to you. I saved a total of 6 images which include a Mr/Mrs Turkey Pilgrims and a Harvest Wheelbarrel filled with Autumn fruits and veggies. I think the images are adorable and remind me of the Thanksgiving commercials for Publix, a regional grocery store we have here in Florida. Then I thought of my daughter in law and how she loved the Pilgrim salt and pepper shakers they offered years ago. When we sold our second home in North Carolina, I asked if there was anything she wanted from the house and all she wanted were those salt and pepper shaker so this will be her Thanksgiving card.

I printed the image several times and cut the 1st layer with a circle Nestibility, the second layer was the head and the body, the third layer was just the body, then pop dotted the layers to give a 3D effect and glittered the leaves. I put it on the background layer that was embossed with Cuttlebug Autumn embossing folder that was inked and added a few brads. The leaves were cut and inked with Martha Stewart Maple leaf punch and added a few sprigs of greenery that was cut with Martha Stewart branch punch along with an acorn that was cut with Cricut Doodlecharm cartridge and added an eyelet and tied t to the ribbon on the side band along with a bow. The sentiment is from the Cutting Cafe Autumn Day Printable Stamp Set that was re sized and re colored.

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day!

Please note, I have received many request for the Pilgrim clip art images this morning but I cannot stress it enough, I need your email address, otherwise I don't know where to send it too
