Welcome to day 1 of the hop!  Today's featured set is "I am Thankful" and it includes this bold and beautiful turkey!  

The inside:

If you stopped by my blog yesterday, you might have read that I was going to share the FEATURED set all week.  For today's peek at "Works of Art" I used this stamp on the back and I will sign my name and date it.

There are so many gorgeous sentiments in this set that I decided to just use a sentiment for my next card.  I chose this gorgeous piece of DP that begs not to be covered up and added the sentiment on a Spellbinders Labels Four die cut.  This card is entered into the HYCCT1301C challenge at SCS to make a one or two layer card - FLAT is FABULOUS!

I hope you will hop on down the designer list to see all the gorgeous creations my teammates have come up with and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win today's release!

  10. Angie, your turkey card is so pretty. I love the colors and layout that you used. You are so good to do the inside. I am terrible about that. 99% of my cards have nothing inside. So much of it stuck to the outside. LOL. That paper that you used on your second card is just gorgeous. I love the colors and design. I can so see not covering it up. I hope you have a blessed day today!

  11. Such fabulous cards Angie! Great for the upcoming holidays! Thanks for the inspiration!

  12. Like the vibrant color of your Turkey and especially like the inking on edge of cardstock. Like the finished inside.

  20. That paper on your second card is stunning. Also your turkey is so bright and cheerful looking.

  21. Beautiful work on your cards! You made the turky more real than I could. I had the elementary school turkey on the brain! I very much want to play along with the HYCCT challenges, but just haven't had the time. I'm going to try and make time.
