Happy Thanksgiving!

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the USA and Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate and Happy Day to everyone else! There is always so much to be thankful for and one thing I am thankful for is all of you! Truly I wish you all an abundance of health, happiness and love in your lives!
I decided to combine Artistic Outpost stamps from Home and Route 66 for my Thanksgiving card. And so you know, Artistic Outpost is having a really nice sale of 20% off and free shipping for all US orders over $25.00. Check it out HERE.
So many people are traveling over Thanksgiving to visit family or friends and that was the inspiration behind my card, which fits into a size 10 envelope.
The background is the map from Route 66, which was stamped randomly using Watering Can Archival on paper that was inked with Old Paper, Antique Linen and then shaded with Vintage Photo, Black Walnut and a little Black Soot.
Other inks used for the remaining images were Stazon Olive and Archival Sepia. The background were inked and shaded as above. There are only a few days left to join in the November "Show us you AO Art," so hurry up.
Love that old truck bringing it home!
Thank you so much for stopping by today and enjoy!
