Gift Card Holder

 Hi everyone-
I hope that everyone is doing great and ready for some TURKEY tomorrow!!!
Me personally, I love turkey on the day it comes out of the oven.  After that, it seems to go dry and doesn't taste the same.  Since we have 2 homes to visit tomorrow, I will have TONS of leftovers...which will mean Turkey Pot Pies, and Turkey Soup!!! 
So I had a little bit of time to squeeze in a little something for a gift a friend of mine.
I used two images from Tiddly Inks called Minnie's Gift and Lilli Claire-Party Time.
Are they not the cutest things on the block!!!!  The one with the black hair is me….LOL!!!
I still need a lot of practice with brown/ethnic skin, but I tried!!!TiddlyGift
This is the inside of the card!!!  Is that not the coolest!!?!?!?!  I learned about this technique from the Holiday Boot Card Boot Camp online class.  It was filled with great techniques and fabulous ideas!!!! 
I will stamp the sentiment when I’m ready to deliver!!!  TiddlyGift1
I would like to enter this card in the following challenge:
That's it from me this week!!!!
Make sure to stop by the Sentimental Sundays Blog on Sunday, because we have some BIG news to share with you!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all that celebrate it!!!
And for those of you heading out for Black Friday....You are crazy!!! LOL!!!
On a lighter note, stay warm, be safe and have fun. 

See you guys back on Sunday!!!

    Oh yes, I roast two large plump chickens instead of a turkey...more legs and a lot more tender and moist.

  4. I struggle with Ethnic skin too, there are some real experts out there at it. Wish I could mimic their technique.
