Thankful For You ...

Good evening! Today I woke up to 3-below zero wind chills
in Northern Illinois. A little early for this kind of weather
here, and makes me want to leave the state for Winter.
Lots of wishful thinking happening here! LOL!

Now back to my post ... Thankful For You ...
There are so many things that I am Thankful For! Topping the chart
 is my family. My amazing husband who supports me regardless 
of what I do, or don't do ... like clean the house ... because I'm 
busy crafting. LOL! Next up are my children who bring me so 
much joy, and I can't leave out my adorable grandson. :D


This beauty is called Thankful For you Betty by Simply Betty Stamps.
Betty, Artist and Owner of SBS challenged her SBS FB Fan Group
to create a project with this beauty and there were a couple of
rules for the Challenge.
1 - Add pleats to her skirt and bustle
2 - Color Combination has to be Traditional Fall Colors
3 - You must use the sentiment and frame it
4 - No digital coloring or creating

I think I covered all of the requirements. She was super FUN to color
and I truly enjoyed the challenge Betty.

My design was inspired by the Feeling Sketchy Challenge #108.

Copics: E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, R22 R20 (skin)
E08, E09, E97 (hair); E13, #15, E18 (clothes)
Y23, Y36, Y28, E55, E57 (turkey); YR61, YR65, YR68 (plate)
Until next time ... Enjoy!

Products used:
 - Paper: Neenah Solar White 80# Smooth, Bazzill, Authentique Seasons Autumn 6x6 DP
 - Ink: Copic Markers, Time Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink
