Eat Ham! A CAS-ual Fridays Sketch Card

Hello, friends!  As we approach one of my favorite holidays, I wanted to share a card I'll be giving to my mom tomorrow as she hosts thirteen family members for Thanksgiving dinner.  (This is actually a small gathering for her...this year its just me and my brother with our families...there are years when all five of us come with spouses and kids!) 

I made a card following this sketch at the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #29:

I have had this fun turkey stamp from Inkadinkado for several years now and I really like it...I guess I have a goofy sense of humor!  I embossed and watercolor painted him, added some Glossy Accents to his eyes, and added a distress ink border around him before layering and mounting onto a card.  The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Celebrate Everyday clear set, and I used the Designer Woodgrain stamp on the background of the rust layering paper.

Sorry, little dude.  No chance we are eating ham this Thanksgiving.  Better luck next year!

On a grateful note, this year I'm thankful for all the wonderful new friends I have made in my first year of blogging...thank you to my 45 followers and to all those who stop by and comment from time to time.  I do appreciate all of you! 

Happy Thanksgiving!
