Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone, I hope your day is filled with family, food and fun.  I won't keep you long today as I know you'll be creating wonderful memories with your loved ones.  Before I explain how I created my Thanksgiving Card above, I wanted to share one of my favorite  Thanksgiving Day poems.

Over the River and Through the Woods
by Lydia Maria Child

Over the river, and through the wood,
To Grandfather's house we go;
the horse knows the way to carry the sleigh
through the white and drifted snow.
Over the river, and through the wood,
to Grandfather's house away!
We would not stop for doll or top,
for 'tis Thanksgiving Day.
Over the river, and through the wood—
oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes and bites the nose
as over the ground we go.
Over the river, and through the wood—
and straight through the barnyard gate,
We seem to go extremely slow,
it is so hard to wait!
Over the river, and through the wood—
When Grandmother sees us come,
She will say, "O, dear, the children are here,
bring a pie for everyone."
Over the river, and through the wood—
now Grandmother's cap I spy!
Hurrah for the fun! Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

Today's creation started out with embossing Pumpkin Pie Cardstock using the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder and then cutting 3 Ovals from the Layering Ovals Dies (5th from the largest).  I then sponged them lightly with Pumpkin Pie Ink. I used the Leaf Punch on Mossy Meadow Cardstock for my pumpkin leaves and my Duet Banner Punch on Early Espresso Cardstock and trimmed it a bit for my pumpkin stem.  The gorgeous sentiment comes from the Country Home Stamp Set and I chose the Country Lane Designer Series Paper and the Joyous Noel Copper Glimmer Paper to pull it all together.
