Debbi - Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends in America. I had so much fun making these cute little pumpkins for a table decoration using the Boys Hoot and Tail Feather collection. Every other panel was embossed  and I used Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink to highlight.
Zoe - I took inspiration for this challenge by reading up on Thanksgiving and learning about the parades, music and traditions. I thought I'd create an album cover ready to add pages to, full of those photos people take during celebrations. I used Emma Canning's Band Camp image to represent the music and parades. I coloured her with a mix of markers including the fabulous Graph It's. I used paper, washi tape & elements from my stash. That's the beauty of digital images you can make them work with whatever you have!
Sarah - I must admit to being challenged by the challenge this week.  I've never made a Thanksgiving card before - but I got my thinking cap on and came up with this.  I used a pre-coloured pumpkin image from the Witchie Witchie 2013 download bundle (shows how versatile this set can be!) and simply copied and pasted it twice more to create the three pumpkins.  I then cut the image out with a nestie, popped it onto 3d foam over a scrap of paper that I'd printed out from a previous card, added some twine, buttons and stamped a sentiment.
Scatty Jan  For my Thanksgiving project I have used the lovely image by Emma canning - Christmas Dinner....Coloured with promarkers and an extra Turkey cut on my portrait.Yummy I cant wait for my Turkey xx
Susan - I have to admit my mind just through a blank for this challenge, but that's why it called
a challenge! So I thought that I'd have a go with craft artist and this is the outcome. The papers are from the amazing Digi collection Christmas Joy and the image is Christmas Dinner. Coloured with Graph'it markers. Just can't wait to see all the amazing entries and good luck everyone  xxx
Cara....I also chose to use the adorable Emma Canning image Christmas Dinner for my Thanksgiving card.  I coloured her with my Graph'it markers of course and used papers from the Christmas Joy Download Bundle.
Sally - Hi here is my Digi Choosday Challenge card- Happy Thanksgiving.  Being a Brit married to an American, we celebrate Thanksgiving, have some friends or family over and have a Roast Turkey Dinner with all the American trimmings! (Not as good as our Christmas Dinner). I have chosen one of Emma Canning's digi images with a Turkey as that is what it is all about!  I coloured her with Graph'it markers and added liquid accents to the turkey to make him look like he has just come out of the oven, glitter to her hair and boots. I matted her on some backing papers from the Home for Christmas CD Rom and some gold cardstock from my crafty stash.
So there's the inspiration for today! 
I'm sure you'll agree that they're all superb makes again this week, love love love all the work these guys have put in!
