I love making non-traditional cards so I brought out Pumpkin JackThanksgiving is an often forgotten holiday but it and Christmas are my two favorites.  I remember all of the delicious smells coming from the kitchen and the beautiful table my mother used to set the those holidays.  The house was always full and it was a time to be thankful for all we had.  Here is the simple Thanksgiving card I made for this challenge.

Until next time. . .happy creating!
