Happy Thanksgiving

       In just one week we'll be pulling the wish bone around the Thanksgiving table!  To celebrate I made this card using stamps by Crafty Secrets.
     I think Thanksgiving is a forgotten holiday.  Christmas just seems to gobble it pun intended.
     The paper is Memory Box.  Skeleton leaves are All Night Media.  I've had the leaves for years and really had to dig around to find them.
     I used this week's sketch by Sketch Saturday
Have a delightful Thursday!!

  12. I hope your Thanksgiving was beautiful, Linda. I think it's unfortunate that Christmas starts at the same time as Halloween these days, but it's all about the shopping, I guess. It's not officially the Christmas season at my house until Dec. 1st. This is a darling card. Great image. Love those Crafty Secret stamps.
