Thanksgiving Invite


For the last three years, we have had a potluck Thanksgiving meal at our campsite. Last year it grew to 20 people! Somehow, a rumour got around that we were not having it this year, so IMHO the best way to dispel the rumour was to make written invitations. Any excuse to stamp, right? Anyway, I used this turkey stamp that I won in some blog candy. It's made by Cornish Heritage Farms and, I must say, it's a really nice stamp. I did some very quick watercoloring with garden green, pumpkin pie, more mustard and creamy caramel to make little "Tom" come alive, then added a strip of Always Artichoke stamped with the same color ink. The maple leaf stamp is from some unknown dollar stamps that I picked up a few months ago. Sentiment is also from the dollar store, from a set called "Words of Expression.
