Thank you cards know no season…

It may be the season for giving thanks, but a good thank you card knows no season! At Festive Friday our new Inspo List is inspired by the upcoming US Thanksgiving holiday. For Americans, it’s a time to gather together with family and friends, enjoying food and fun (and football). It’s also a time when people reflect on the year and all the good things we have to be thankful for. Our Inspo List has ten items related to the holiday to help you create your own fun project to link up to this week’s challenge!

(affiliate links are used in this post. When you click on them and make a purchase, I may receive a small commission at no additional cost to you. Thanks for supporting my blog!)

Using the Inspo List, grab at least three items and create a project to link to the challenge. There’s a wide range of ideas to choose from, so even if you’re not feeling the “Thanksgiving” part of the challenge, you can still play along!

Here’s my take

I chose Thankful Theme, Gold, Leaves and Cranberry

I continue to work on my no-line coloring and was really happy with the way this turned out. Except for the coloring, this card comes together quick.

Determined to be confident in your watercoloring this year?
As we look to 2020, I’m sure you’re thinking about some #craftgoals you’ve had on your list. I know a lot of people “want” to watercolor – backgrounds, flowers, characters…. but they are afraid to take the plunge.

Today’s card tugs at my heartstrings
I love animals. Sometimes, I think I love animals more than people… I know you know what I mean.
