TPE Challenge #40 Thankful

This week's theme challenge at The Pink Elephant is "thankful". I decided to make garland/a banner to hang from our fireplace mantle. I used a paper pack I got from SU last year to cover my chipboard letters. I also used the Wildflower Kids Tom the Turkey which I colored with my Copics. I love my Copics but I so need more practice with them. I just attached the letters to twine with small clothesline clips which will make storage minimal.

I had a hard time photographing this because the lighting in our house isn't good so I tried a shot outside too.
Be sure you check out what the rest of the Design Team made this week.

I also have a card to share today that I made for the Wisconsin Scrappers challenge this week. Our challenge was to use primary colors. I also used a Wildflower Kids digital stamp for my card too, I used some delphinium blue flower soft for his hat and scarf.
