In the fall of 2005 when Ben was in Marine Recruit Training (Boot Camp) and I was rehabbing after my spine surgery, I created a little Thanksgiving card using clipart and photos. I used the Microsoft programs Publisher and Paint to create little caricatures of my family. Each year since I have updated and tweaked the design to use again.
This is my original effort of the blessings card as I call it.
This is how it evolved for 2008 when we added 2 new dogs and our sweet DIL.
I decided to do something different this year for the Hero Arts challenge this week to use a photo in a stamped card. As each face and dog is a different photo I think this will qualify.
I used 4 Hero Arts stamps on this card and paper from K&Company. This time I changed the women's hats and removed the corn stalks before printing and cutting out the design.
Here's a closeup of the caricatures
Hero Arts Stamps used:
Old Letter Writing
Dots and Flowers Design Block
Clear Design Scallop Borders
Thought for the Day:
Psalm 84:10~ A day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
Isaiah 30:18~ The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him.
Have a blessed day and please leave a comment so I know you were here.
