Thanksgiving Pilgrims w/ wiggle eyes Card

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! 

I'm thankful for my family; my wonderful hubby and daughter. Our daughter is home from college for the Thanksgiving holidays. We enjoyed watching her animation film she is working on for her senior animation film project.

I'm thankful for my wonderful friends.

Yesterday hubby & I prepared some of the Thanksgiving dishes. I made the pumpkin chocolate cheesecake pies. Hubby made the apple sausage stuffing and the sweet potato casserole. A good friend gave us pork sausage from her farm.

Created this Thanksgiving Card using handmade white chipboard. Stamped Stampabilities Pilgrims Girl & Boy stamps on white chipboard that are removable tags. The white chipboard is recycled from a clothing item. Stamped sentiment. Added buttons, ribbon, twines & wiggle eyes.
