Thanksgiving Duel



It's that time again...another round of the Dueling Darlings. And, I am THANKFUL for all my Darling friends!!!! This month Michelle was our hostess and we received a great kit to work with.

The theme for this month was Thanksgiving Greeting/Gratitude. The image is from DRS Designs and I love it! I used More Mustard and Baja Breeze cardstock. And I watercolored the image with Baja Breeze, More Mustard, Summer Sun, Really Rust and Old Olive ink. We received some great DP in this kit and I chose to use the polka dot piece. The DP is from Making Memories. The ribbon is from Michaels, the cute button from Creatology and the wonderful leaves from Recollections.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. My oldest son's football team, and the younger team my husband coaches, are both playing in a national tournament in Las Vegas and we are making a vacation out of it. So we will be watching football on Thanksgiving Day and then hitting some great buffet somewhere, I hope. ;)

To all the Dueling Darlings....I am VERY THANKFUL for each and every one of you!!
