Carol's kit to me included 5 fantastic sheets of DSP mostly by Bo Bunny and Kaiser Craft and some great flash card from Graphic 45. An antique flying machine image and some mini car images. Also she included ribbbon, rickrack, buttons, and brads.
Here's my card:
I used the flash cards from Graphic 45 for the 3 rectangle panels the narrow strip is from one of the DSP included in the packet. I colored the mini cars with my copic and attached a silver flower brad from my own stash to the antenna of the car then mounted on the card with dimensionals. I stacked a white button on top of the black button (both from the kit) and tied with some twine from my stash. I attached the button at one end of a row of black rickrack also from the kit. I used SCS sketch SC411 as the layout as seen here:
As a bonus challenge Carol asked us to of a Thanksgiving memory or a memorable trip to get to your holiday destination. When I was away at college I was so looking forward to going home for Thanksgiving and enjoying the wonderful meal I knew my mom would have on the table. So in preparation I almost starved myself for weeks so I could really make a pig of myself on Thanksgiving Day. Well, that really backfired. Rather than allowing myself to gorge on the feast, I found I had shrunk my stomach and couldn't even finish the first serving on my plate 'cause my stomach hurt so bad! And speaking of my mom, it will be 24 years ago this Thanksgiving that I spent my last day with her. She died the very next morning. A Thanksgiving never goes by that I don't remember mom and wish she was still with me. I've learned over the years that it's not so much about the food but the loved ones we celebrate the day with that is the real blessing and one for which I always give thanks.
I'm wishing you all a very blessed Thanksgiving!
