Happy Thanksgiving

Wishing all my US friends a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Be safe if you're travelling.  We're spending a quiet rainy day at home watching the parade & football.  Of course, I'll probably work in a little crafting--haha!
I have a couple more Christmas projects to show you.  First is a photo ornament for PTI MIM

Our neighbor snapped this shot on the day of hubby's family reunion this summer so we could send a text saying we were thinking of them.  The photo & Enchanted Evening mat were die cut with PTI Mat Stack 3.  The bottom strip was die cut from Spring Rain & the dot wreath from Wreath for all Seasons was stamped using Delicata Silvery Shimmer. 
The little branches are from Spruce & Sprigs.  Probably will send this to my sister.

Next is a card using Ellen Hutson Bold Blossom--my first EH purchase.  Decided to do something different with it to enter the What's Your Favorite challenge celebrating EH's 11th Anniversary.  Gotta say--I really love how it turned out! 
The large & small leaves were die cut from a panel of watercolor paper smooshed with 3 green Distress Inks.  The sparkle is from splattering with my Wink of Stella pen which I also brushed on the white linen card front. 
The center embellishment is at least 15 years old--just what I needed!  The red panel was mounted with foam tape & this one I may hand deliver.  I'm also entering HLS Anything Goes with Dies.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
