A felt Feathered Friend perched on a layered Jovial Wreath creates a lighthearted Thanksgiving card today.  Most Thanksgiving cards are quite serious - this one will make you smile!  Here's the message on the inside...

Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a fall card with a sense of humor.  The new Mini Vintage Varsity Alphabet set is perfectly-sized for the greeting.  Diecutting it is easy too.  There are 4 of each letter on this great die - you'll cut everything you need here with a single run thru the machine.  Much better than fidgeting with each letter - and cutting additional repeating letters.

Cut the Feathered Friends bird and beak from felt, cut the wing from the stripes in the Dashing Holiday 6x6 set. Borrow the eye die from the Feathered Friends owl - cut it from dark brown cardstock.  Leave the tiny beak and eye diecuts in the die until you're ready to attach them.  

Cut Jovial Wreath twice from Candy Corn cardstock. Cut "thankful"  from green and metallic brown cardstock. Cut a 3-½" square of the dark green striped Dashing Stripes and Dots 6x6 sheet. Cut the accent strips - ¾" x 4" (Candy Corn) and ¾" x 3-¼" (lighter green dots from the Dashing Stripes and Dots 6x6 sheet).

Attach the diecuts to an A-6 (4-½" x 6-¼") recycled Kraft card.  Attach the Mini Vintage Varsity Alphabet letters on the inside - start in the center of each line and work outwards.  Use a credit card or T-ruler to keep the letters in line.  

Create unique messages with the Mini Vintage Varsity Alphabet - it would be hard to find an "I am not a turkey" stamp!

Special thanks to everyone from Saturday's GRATEFUL - FALL GREETINGS class at Impress!  Hope you liked the origami maple leaf - and mix of colors, papers, dies and stamps. Thanks for the cute pumpkin spice lollipop treats Jan.   Thanks for the caramel/cheddar popcorn and cookies Jenny - and thanks for the imported candies Jacky!  Thanks for helping us fill those shopping baskets again Ann, Erin and Lynne.  Lots of thanks here - this card says it all!

If you're in the Seattle area - join us for the MERRY POP-INS class at Impress this Saturday afternoon.  We're making special cards with little extras on each design.  More like pop-ons than pop-ins, but I wanted a fun class title.

Thanks for visiting - see you again this weekend!
