Fantabulous Cricut Thankful Challenge #37

Howdy friends!  We are winding up our week getting ready for Thanksgiving!!  Yummy!  This week the challenge at Fantabulous Cricut is based on Thanksgiving - something we are thankful for.  I am thankful for so much in my life with my family and friends.  I decided to let my friends in our Small Church Community know that I'm thankful for them.  We learn so much from each other in our faith and in our daily lives.  I am making small loaves of pumpkin bread for them and tying a small note around it to let them know that our family is thankful for them.  Here are the simple cards I made:

I used Tags, Bags, Boxes & More to cut out the rectangle for card bases and squares for the orange and white pieces.  Then I stamped the turkey image on white cardstock and used Copic Markers to color him.  I'm new to Copics, so I don't have any techniques yet - but they are fun to use!!  I then stamped 'Give Thanks' around the corner of the orange square and inked all edges, then finished up with a twine 'bow.' 

Here is the inside:

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving!  Please head over to Fantabulous Cricut to play along with this week's challenge!!!
