Fall Scarecrow and Vintage Wishbone Kids

I love fall and Thanksgiving!   The cool weather, the colors and the Thanksgiving dinner.  

This will be the first year since Louisa was born that they've lived close enough to come for Thanksgiving.  Can't wait to have them and get back to fixing our traditional goodies.  Pecan Pie, anyone?

Scarecrows are perfect for fall, of course.  I've had this one for a year and finally had time to create a card.  I've combined images from several stamp sets to create the scene.

Had so much fun coloring all these sweet images!

Speaking of sweet, aren't these kids adorable?  Love the huge wishbone.  I created a Z-fold card that when opened reveals more of the image and that cute turkey. 

A band of vellum keeps it closed.

You can download the kids below.  The download also includes the Make A Wish (slightly off the edge), so that if you want to make a card like this one, all you have to do is cut off the top portion of the paper and a little bit off the right side, then fold.

Are you like Louisa and her mommy and daddy planning to travel for Thanksgiving?  Or are you like me, cooking with everyone coming to you?

  12. Ohmyword!! SO cute! I am absolutely in love with your scarecrow scene! Super adorable, and your soft coloring is just beautiful! That vintage image is really fabulous, too. LOVE the z-fold card design you created with it. Such a fun surprise to open it up and reveal even more cuteness!
    Most of my family doesn't live near me, so Thanksgiving is usually pretty quiet. But both my kids are coming home for a few days,and I'm so excited. It will be the first time my son's come back since leaving for medical school in August. Yay!! Hope you have an absolutely amazing time with your sweeties!

  13. These cards are precious Lori. Boy does that pecan pie sound good but unless there's a way to make it taste the same minus the sugar I'll be going without this year. :-(

  14. These cards are so cute. I will try doing this one.
