Thursdays with Lindsay

Good morning! Happy Thanksgiving to you.

Yep, I'm still here to post my LSS card and I know this isn't very humble of me, but I am so PROUD of this card!

I used the Primitive House image with just a few alterations. First of all, I erased most of the flower image on the left of the house and then I removed the "welcome" part on the mat and added in Merry Christmas. I used Copics to color the image and then used white Puffy paint to add some snow. The plaid paper is from DCWV Christmas mat stack and the base is Old Olive.

Here's a close up of the snow detail and another reason why I am most proud. Do you see that snowman? Cute, right? I DREW HIM!! I can't believe I actually created my own "stamp." I know I'll never be able to do it again and it was probably really dumb of me to use my original drawing. But I did it! I really wanted a Primitive looking snowman and couldn't find one, so I made it myself. Yipppeee!!!

Don't forget to stop and visit Lindsay and the rest of the team. Take a break from the Thanksgiving festivities... let the guys watch football in their bellies-are-full-catatonic state and see what the girls have to share with you. I do know Lindsay has a very cool freebie this week, too.

Oh! An announcement, too!! Lindsay is hosting a challenge over at MyGrafico Community, so be sure to join the group and get in on the action. And MyGrafico is having a sale today - everything is 20% off!!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Really cute card! You did a great job on your snowman, maybe you have a hidden talent!

I think you are dreaming (literally dreaming) of a white Christmas considering we don't usually get snow for Christmas. That's okay though, I'm right there with you -- I want snow for Christmas!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!
