Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I have used another one of Meljen's Designs rubber stamps, now available at Whimsy Stamps,  for this card. 
We have a very creative theme over at Cute Card Thursday
Blast from the Past!
You can choose from any of our earlier themes, now as we have been going for over 2 years you have quite a lot to choose from!  
I chose challenge 49 from February 2009, Animal Magic.  
The papers I used are Basic Grey, the tree paper is still one of my all time favourite Christmas designs!  
The snowflake strip is a Martha Stewart punch, glittered with stickles.  The individual snowflakes are also M.S!
The ticket stamp is from Whimsy stamps designed by Ann Vento aka Raindrop Echo Designs who has also designed the fabulous ticket die now available from Whimsy Stamps, makes cutting out all those tickets so simple!
The central die is a Nellie Snedden die  I got from Bunny Zoe Crafts.
As usual we have a fabulous sponsor with a fabulous prize
Do drop by the rest of the DT blogs they will help remind you of the former challenges and have created some gorgeous cards as always!
A quick reminder that Whimsy stamps are celebrating their 2nd anniversary this month!  This week they are giving away a stamp a day, check out the details over on the Whimsy Inspiration Blog!
Hope those of you celebrating Thanksgiving today are having a lovely time with family and friends and feasting!  I love this holiday we have 'inherited' since moving here!  It is so nice to have everyone off work and school and have a lovely turkey dinner altogether (it gives me the opportunity to practice for Christmas Day as we have turkey then too)!   We are even going to try out one of the Christmas Puddings I just made this week, well, we need to know if they are good enough!
To everyone else not celebrating Happy Thursday!

Such a cute wintery card! Happy Thanksgiving! We have ours in October, but we are celebrating a snowday today - my boys are home from school - just with Hot Chocolate rather than turkey!
