Whoa! My photos are huge. . .I'm still trying to get used to the larger size. There is actually one size down but it's too small. I wish the new Blogger interface allowed an option custom resizing.  I think I may go back to the old interface and editor. I miss having the option to customize the size of my photos. Anyway. ..about my card. I'm not sure the brand of the rubber stamp that I used. I had unmounted it from it's wood block a while ago and I no longer know who made the stamp. I stamped the image on to watercolor paper and colored the image with SU Markers and did a bit of watercoloring. I sort of pulled the colors out from the image and colored my back ground as well. 

I added Prima flowers a few embellishments.  The sentiment was actually printed from my computer.  Believe it or not, I could not find any of my Thanksgiving sentiment stamps.  It drives me nuts having to look for specific sentiments so I decided it was much easier to just type it out on the computer and print it.

My watercoloring looks a bit messy close up but I intended it to look that way. . .I wanted it to look like watercoloring and sort of just swished the colors all over the paper.  The messy look was intentional. . hehe!

Anyway. . that's it for today.  I had fun making this card. . .I think I'm going to make more Thanksgiving cards!  Hope you all have a wonderful Saturday!
