Chickie Thanksgiving

I won this adorable Plymouth Chicks rubber cling stamp by Stampendous in a Limelight Papercrafts challenge a few months ago and have been dying to ink it up now that it's time to make Thanksgiving cards! And I have been wanting these Martha Stewart Loops corner and edge punches ever since I first saw them. I think this punch-around-the-page pair makes the cutest and most whimsical frames. Anyway, I was finally order them for my very own recently when I won a $25 gift certificate to Two Peas in a Bucket from the ColourQ #52 challenge. Today was the first time I was able to use them, and I have to say I love 'em!! I know this punch set will get a ton of use. :)

Here are the challenges I incorporated into this card:
  • today's CAS challenge on SCS: CAS90, gingham and/or checks. I used a yellow gingham DP and green gingham ribbon.
  • Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge: WMSC20
  • Simon Says: Give Thanks
  • Paper Players: #21, a recipe challenge to use one DP (my yellow gingham behind the chickie image), something that has been punched (the pumpkin pie loops frame), and a sentiment ("Happy Thanksgiving" of course!)
Thanks for dropping by today! :)

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Stampendous Plymouth Chicks, Mark's Finest Papers Thankful for You (sentiment)
Paper: MFP natural CS, SU pumpkin pie CS, DCWV gingham DP, The Paper Company CS
Ink: Palette noir black, Palette burnt umber
Accessories: MS Loops PATP punches, CM corner rounder punch, Prismacolor pencils, paper blending stumps, odorless mineral spirits, foam tape, hemp cord, gingham ribbon
Techniques: Gamsol Magic

Those new loop PATP's are terrific! The chickies are cute too, and look good with the loopy border. Glad you got some new goodies to play with! You and I are right next to each other over at Paper Players. :)
