Give Thanks

Yep - Friday already!! The challenge over at Tellen's Place this week is aimed at "Giving Thanks".
Not just for the American Thanksgiving but for other 'thankyou's as well.
I had great fun and a little giggle with my DT piece for this challenge. The sequence just wouldn't leave my head so I had to go with it.
A waterfall card..... sideways........

It's the journey of that turkey to the table .......

with Gretchen doing the honours

All ready for the table :)

There are loads of tutorials over on youtube for making waterfall cards, so I won't bore you with another here. A cardmakers version of the old Flick books.

I used a pearlised brown cardstock for the base, layered with burnt orange then a yellow from the DCWV citrus range with circles on it (harvest time/circle of life). The images printed onto white and coloured with promarkers and ink distressed with pale orange.
The ribbon for the tags and brads from stash, the flower from Crafty Feelings.
Get your thankful foot forward and let's see your projects.
Terry's organised a fantastic prize of a $20 gift card from! To get you started with inspiration, there are two freebies available as well over at Tellen's Place!
