Secret Sister Reveal - Thanksgiving

This past Monday evening, we had our Secret Sister reveal.  I didn't take pictures of the other cards I sent because it might have been a give away.

Here's the last card I made for her - with the other reveal card appearing on my other blog - Susan Vilar Stamps!

The card base and die cut are in Old Olive with the scroll work highlighted in Old Olive ink with a sponge dauber before I removed the die cut from the die.

I've had this cornucopia stamp for a VERY long time!  I'm not sure if I got it at Hobby Lobby, or found it on our travels. 

The BEST part about this, is I used the NEW  not-yet-released Stampin' Up! Watercolor pencils.  When we were in Kansas City, we had an opportunity to try them, and I fell in LOVE!  I love watercoloring anyway, but this was fantastic!  I used the blender pens to move the color around.

You can get a wonderful close-up view by clicking on the picture.  I love the shading watercoloring gives.  Definitely a medium I love to use!

W for Michael

So yes, that sounds strange.  Did it get your attention? 

The little boy's last name begins with a W...  now it should make a little more sense.

 I REALLY enjoy making these letters with the cars!  Granted, this W wasn't as large as the G.  Hobby Lobby just didn't have that large of a letter.  I would have preferred a larger W. Turns out I had too many cars!
It's meant to be  placed on the wall in his room.  Thankfully the letters come with the area for nails already made (Whew)! 

Now I need to find out what is on his Christmas list! :)  That might be the next project... or pick-up at WM since we aren't close to where they live.
