Mojo Monday #105 -Thanksgiving

This stamp called "Gobble, Gobble," from the holiday mini catalog, is a steal at $6.95 and becomes the centerpiece for this Mojo Monday sketch! I used markers to color the stamp itself, pulling out the More Mustard, Ruby Red, and Close to Cocoa and after "huffing" on the stamp, layed it down on Very Vanilla. The base of this card is More Mustard cardstock. I cut out the circles with my 1 1/4 inch punch from my favorite paper right now, "Autumn Meadows." The brown background is some retired DSP! The scallop edge punch gave me some more Ruby Red accent and another strip of my "AM's"pulled my color scheme together. The sentiment "give thanks" reminds me I need to be thankful each day for so many blessings. Today I will be thankful for my wonderful husband!

p.s. the first card is my "redo"....I added the brown strip to make the card "flow" better into the scallops...I knew something was missing when I uploaded!!!

From one Traci to another...this is super cute! I think the brown strip redo is great, I do several redos sometimes on my cards!
