Give Thanks--Mojo Monday #108

It's been a while since I've had time to play with my Verve stamps and they were feeling seriously unloved! So, I pulled out this Tall Oaks set for this week's Mojo Monday challenge. It's been a which since I've had time to do this challenge, too, so it felt good to get back to it. This is a great sketch--it will be used over and over, I'm thinkin'.

I also pulled out some paper I'd been wanting to use from the Autumn mat stack by Recollections. I love that bit of turquoise in this paper. I stamped the pumpkins on Gina K. Pure Luxury 80 lb paper with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored them with Copic markers. Then I stitched around all the elements and sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and the sentiment was done the same way, then cut/embossed with a Spellbinders tag die. Some turquoise twill, some buttons tied on with twine, and a few punched leaves finished it off. I'm lovin' it!

Thanks for stopping by today!
