Colour Me...! Creative Challenge 48 and Freshly Made Sketches 164

The Reed family had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I was so pleased to have my three sons all together this year.  Family fun, food, and football... it doesn't get any better than that!  My son, Matthew, and his wife, Michelle, hosted this year.  He makes a delicious champagne turkey.  There is never much left when we get done with it.  I'm still "stuffed" from yesterday!

Today I was back in the craft studio pairing up challenges for my card.  This one uses the colors from the Colour Me...! Creative Challenge and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  Along with the new Banner Blessings Stamp Set, they all made for a rather pretty card.  I think it will be perfect to send to Matthew and Michelle for bringing us all together for Thanksgiving.

Stamp Set:  Banner Blessings; Ink:  Rose Red; Card Stock:  Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White, Adorbs (My Mind's Eye); Accessories & Tools:  Coastal Cabana Thick Baker's Twine, In Color Sequin, Dimensionals
