This week the challenge at Phindy's Place is called THANKFUL and we want you to do Thank You or Thanksgiving cards.

You don't have to use a Phindy image for this challenge but there are many in her store that are suitable for both types of cards so pop over and pick a couple up. If you do use a Phindy image this week just follow the instructions in the Challenge rules to enter it twice.

Because I live in Canada and we celebrated Thanksgiving a month ago, I decided to make a Thank You card. I also decided to make one that could be used for a man or woman and used this peaceful scene as my image.

I don't know what happened when I took my photo but I kept getting an orange glow around the edges so I had to revert to a black mat. A light box with proper lights and a little tripod are on the top of my ever-growing Christmas list.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges.

  1. This is just gorgeous, so serene and pretty Cec. Good call to make it for a man or woman (I never seem to have manly cards on hand). Lovely coloring and color scheme.

    A tripod is my best friend, I can't seem to get a steady shot without one!

  2. Love this one...such a beautiful image and your skeleton leaf, wow! I have those on my wish list as well, maybe one of these days.
    Have a great day.

  3. Such a serene scene, isn't it?! You colored it beautifully and your card design is positively lovely!
    My DH bought me the light box/ lights set up or my birthday. I use it all the time, but the darn thing is HUGE!

  4. Fab card, really interesting about Thanksgiving. Blogging is teaching me so much about other countries traditions and so forth, for some weird reason I thought Thanksgiving was only celebrated in America...

  5. I love the scene of this image. You've made it into a fabulous card!

  6. This is beautiful, so tranquil, love that leaf you added

  7. What a beautiful card. I love the embossing. Thanks for joining us at Aud Sentiments.

  8. Beautifully created scene card. Thank you for playing at Aud Sentiments.
