Thanksgiving Card for Mom & Dad

I would like to start off by saying Thank You to all who commented on my first post welcoming me to blogland! It meant a lot to read your kind words and I look forward to forming great blog friendships with you all!

Now on to my first official "Pink Palace Creation".  With the fast approaching Thanksgiving Holiday in Canada this weekend I got into the spirit and made my Mom and Dad a card as they are so graciously cooking a feast for my hubbie and I.  The card I made is the first ever easel card that I have created and I have to say it was a success (well in my eyes at least).

I used the Kraftin Kimmie Stamp-Merry ( and coloured her with my copics:
Skin: E01, E00 & E00
Hair: E49, E25 & E35
Dress: E43, E42, E41 & E40
Turkey: E17, E15, E13 & a touch of Y26
Oven Mitts and accents on the dress: YR18 & YR15
The card is made from Recollection card stock from Michaels, the accent paper is from Creative Memories, the background square is cut from Basil using the Lacey Squares Nestabilities and the Square Nestabilities.

I printed the sentiment on the inside of the card from the computer and added a leaf button that I removed the button backing from to make the card stand up.  The sentiment on the front of the card is from a very old stamp I had and do not know where it is from.

I hope you enjoyed my first blog post as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you!
