JDE Sketch Challenge- Thanksgiving

Hello Everyone!

Hope all is well with everyone! It's time for another Sketch Challenge over at Jackson's Digital Expressions. This time with an optional twist: Thanksgiving. JDE also, has a sponsor this week; Bugaboo Stamps.

This time I created two cards - for my first card I used Robert Jackson's LIL THANKSGIVING (which is still on sale at a special- for a limited time). Isn't that image way too cute? I also used a sentiment from Create With TLC (that one was a freebie but not sure for how long.) Here are the links for the image and the sentiment:

Here is this week's Sketch for Jackson's Digital Expressions Challenge

I used DP from Me & My Big Ideas: Harvest
I've had that paper pad for 2 years and had only used one sheet from it (oops)
The image was colored with Copic markers
except for the hair (I don't have blacks or grays yet)
 As you can see I had more trouble that usual with my "sewing."

I used Glossy Accents for the knocker/balls

Now on to my Bugaboo card.

I used Christmas Teddy 2 Ornaments. At first I made an oops and didn't realize it was supposed to be a "Thanksgiving theme" and I had chosen a Christmas image to work with but it all worked out in the end because it was just an "optional twist." Again, please excuse my crazy attempt at sewing... I almost started to draw the lines but left it alone. I've sewn much better before... don't know what happened today LOL. Here is the link to the site if you like this digi: http://www.bugaboostamps.com/Christmas-teddy-2-ornaments_p_178.html

Here I used ALL Copic markers
DP is from Martha Stewart Holidays: Winter Wonderland

I don't have buttons like many of my crafty online buddies
but I did have these cute little aluminum bells that I've for a long long time. 
(which I thought went perfect with the image.)

Hope you enjoyed your visit. 
using the Sketch at the top of this post; you don't have to use a 
Robert Jackson image but it would be greatly appreciated if you did. 
Thank you so much for stopping by.
