Thankful Blessings...

Digi Image: Mini Misteri-Apple Basket - Digistamps4Joy

Hello Everyone,

Sharing with you today a Thanksgiving card I made for a special friend. I am so glad I think out of the box...sometimes...because this precious image of Mini Misteri-Apple Basket is going to work wonderfully for a friend I am thankful to have...I know you see my apples are is because the friend I am sending this card to was so kind to have brought me a wonderful bunch of her deliciously sweet home grown oranges.  I am so grateful for her friendship for so many reasons. I enjoy her visits and calls just to see how I am.

 I just love the way this card came out...I can't wait to share with you the Christmas card I am going to also make with this precious image Mini Misteri who has a series of images in the DigiStamps4Joy Store...all sweet different poses and fun dress-up styles wonderfully created by JenLee.

I finally caved in and purchased some alcohol markers as an early Christmas gift to myself. I got them last week JoAnn Fabrics had the Spectrum Noir markers 40% off online so I went for it. I still enjoy and feel more comfortable using my Faber-Castell, Anna Griffin, Derwent and Primacolor pencils.  I don't mind saying I am still learning how to blend my color pencils much less now excited to learn and check out Youtube videos on how to use these Spectrum Noir markers.
I plan on entering this card into the following challenges and am also a Follower.
