Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.

I think it's second only to Christmas.


I had this snippet of a wreath in my UFO box and decided
it would be perfect colored up for Thanksgiving.

Lovely card, Bonnie. I love the autumnal colours you've used on the wreath. I've had the pleasure of being a guest at a family Thanksgiving celebration when I was a student in the States and I can quite see why you like it so much - it was a wonderful occasion. Elizabeth xx

Did you color the wreath or is it on some sort of fancy schmancy paper? Whichever it is, it is fabulous! Great fall card.
