A Wish For Thanksgiving

Happy Monday!
Here we go again...closer and closer to the holidays! I have the whole week off to enjoy time for ME! I just love ME time, don't you? We are busy getting ready for our Thanksgiving feast on Thursday. I can't wait to have some of my Mama's dressing...it's the BEST ever! Yummo!
This sweet little vintage image of what looks to me to be Pilgrims going to church is one of the Thanksgiving cutout images you can find over at Peggy Loves Vintage. Now originally this image was much larger, but I've shrunk it down to "Snippet" size!
I use all scraps to make these little cards. {Hmm, maybe that is not a good thing}...this causes me to save every little piece of leftover paper, which makes my scrap bin even bigger! Oh well, waste not want not...isn't that the saying? LOL!
I call these cards "Snippets" because it's what's left over when I cut a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card from an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of card stock. The card measures 3" x 5 1/2". They are cute little pieces of art when you are done!
Thank you for visiting me today! Until next time, have a lovely day! HUGS! :)

Pin It!

When the screen first loaded and I saw the card, I thought "Wow!". What a great image. Then when I read the size of it and that it was shrunk down and you used scraps, it made it even a bigger "WOW"! Beautiful work! Hope you are well. . .Best, Curt
