Happy Thanksgiving - justjohannaStyle!

Can you believe in just a week it will be Thanksgiving? This year has gone by so quickly...I can't even imagine that in just about a month we'll be celebrating Christmas. I feel as if I just barely pack up the tree ornaments and cleaned up all of the pine needles from last year!

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, right up there with Christmas! I love getting together with friends and family to just enjoy each other's company and all of that yummy food! I don't send out Thanksgiving cards (gee, I can hardly get the Christmas ones in the mail on time) but if I did...justjohanna would have an image and saying that would be perfect!

The next few cards I'll be posting were created using the recently released Harvest images. I adore this pumpkin image (I just love pumpkins and anything made with pumpkin...can you say "pie!") and the leaves. The center design was created using four different stamps; the pumpkin, the acorn, and two leaf stamps. I really like that Johanna creates images that face either left or right. It enables you to really change the layout of a design, like having two separate leaf images that point in different directions. Each of the images was stamped and colored with my Copics and then cut out and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.

My card base is SU! Chocolate Chip, layered with Kraft paper. The green paper on the left and right sides of the card is from Crate (it's a double-sided piece of paper, the green is on one side and the cream is on the other). The cream paper was run through my Cuttlebug to give it a bit of texture and the green was attached with the new giant SU! eyelets - love them! I used a circle punch to create the notch.

Happy (almost) Thanksgiving!
