Simple Thanksgiving Cards

My Thanksgiving cards are in the mail!!! To get them done in time I made some Simple Thanksgiving Cards using a pre-colored digital image by Deedee's Digis (no longer in business) and various patterned papers. When I run short on time using pre-colored images really speeds things along. Matching patterned papers was the most time consuming part when making these cards but I didn't dig deep and used many patterns from my scrap bin. All layouts are simple and most don't have embellishments. I played around with sequins but didn't like how they looked. The Many Blessings sentiment by Taylored Expressions was heat embossed with white embossing powder. The image was die cut with a stitched circle die by My Favorite Things and a pair of deckle scissors by Fiskar's was used to cut the matting circle. That pretty much sums up these Simple Thanksgiving Cards!
