Hi everyone! I am a veterinary technician living in NY who loves to pen pal and make cards in my spare time. I have never been good at crafts since I can barely draw a straight line with a ruler but I was determined to give it a go.  I love learning all the different techniques and ways to craft. Follow me on my journey as I grow as a card maker!

Grateful Pilgrim Sock Monkey - C4E DT

It's time for a new challenge at Challenges for Everybody. As always Anything Goes.  Simple, right? Our sponsor this week is the always generous Bugaboo Stamps. They sure do have some cuties over there.


Here is my DT card:


I was excited to work with this Sock Monkey Thanksgiving  image this week.  How adorable is he? I colored him with promarkers.  I used papers from my stash.  I used a nestibility die to cut and mat the image. I added some die cut corners.  A bit off black stickle was used on the hat.  The sentiment is from a set from My Creative Time. I love their products!! I used some walnut stain from Tim Holtz around the edges.  I tired my hand at embossing some little leaves to add around the image.  It was my first time doing it.  They look more like blobs of glitter than leaves to me! I must not be doing something right.  Some topaz gemstones were added in the upper right corner.  Inspired by the sketch at Love to Create .

I had lots of fun making this Thanksgiving card.  We would love to have you link up your creations with us today.  Head on over to the challenge blog to link up and see more inspiring creations from my DT teamies!

Hugs,

Erin
