Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone is having a fabulous day and for those in the USA that you have a Happy Thanksgiving!  May the mashed potatoes be extra tasty (my favorite)!

I’m sure you are wondering how a knitting themed card ties into Thanksgiving? Well, today I’ll be having dinner with the family at my brother and sister-in-law’s place and my sister-in-law likes to knit!  Ha – see how that works? ;)

The cute image is from the Knit Happens a la mode stamp set by My Favorite Thinks.  I colored the image with Copic markers and cut it out.  I placed it over a second stamped image using foam dimensionals. I used various pieces of Vanity Fair designer paper matted on Aqua Mist cardstock as a background.  I added stitching to all of the matted panels and finished embellishing the card with a few pink rhinestones and some luscious vintage seam binding (I love this color).

You may have noticed from this post and previous posts that I like vintage seam binding a lot. ;)  I just love how easy it is to tie it into bows… and the colors run the gamut from bright and bold to subtle and elegant.  Simply delightful!  So, I thought I would share a Ribbon Carousel special that will be running from Thursday (today) thru Monday.  Use coupon code “Holiday20” for 20% off at the Ribbon Carousel store.  It’s the perfect opportunity to stock up on some vintage seam binding.  LOL… I just had to share!
