Today's set is a Thanksgiving themed set called "I Am Thankful".   


I came up with two cards using this set:




I normally watercolour a lot, but this month I think this was the only card I used watercolouring on, it was the perfect technique for Mr. Tom Turkey!   I enjoyed pairing him with the autumn feeling patterns and some rolled flowers.





I made a much cleaner card for my second sample, still using lots of different patterns, but much more sparingly.  Making a card like this one is a good way to use up smaller scraps.

I hope you enjoyed my cards today!  The fun is not over though, talented Toni is next on the hop!  Don't miss out on visiting the rest of the amazing DT, there is lots of inspiration in store for you!  Here is the rest of the design team in case you didn't start at the beginning:
