Cornish Heritage Farms: Grateful ♥

Good Morning!
It's time for a new challenge at Cornish Heritage Farms
 and I'm the hostess of this week's challenge choice :) 
With Thanksgiving is right around the corner,
I challenged the team to create a card with theme of Gratitude
and a bonus to use the color brown.
Thanksgiving is a pretty big deal in our home ♥
It's my husband's very favorite holiday
and we are the hosts each year, a tradition I
inherited after my mom tossed in her apron saying she'd paid her dues, LOL!
I love the prepping and baking and cooking and watching the Macy's day parade and all that comes with our special day.
But I confess I also crack up at the memory of being HUGELY pregnant
with our 3 daughters,
all born in December, 2 years apart :)
Every time I look back at those pictures,
 I was ginormous and so very, very pregnant
and looked like I was as stuffed as the poor birds were!
At least our son cut me some slack and was born in September ♥


But I digress! 
 For my card, I used the adorable digi
turkey in the pumpkin patch to create the card front ...
 used miminal dsp and kept the card design fairly simple.
I continued the same pattern/style to the inside of the card
with another digi, Happy Thanksgiving.
Brown is a beautiful color, especially at this time of year,
so for the bonus, I chose that as my cardstock base.
Both of these digis are available in the CHF store and
are immediate downloads.
Want to play along in our challenge this week?
Of course, we'd love if you did!
You can link up your cards using a Cornish Heritage Farms image,
either stamp or digi, to the CHF Challenge blog.
If you chose a gallery, like Splitcoast, please use the keyword CHF66.
And stop in and see what inspirations the DT has created as well!
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!

I have yet to try digs and you have me wanting to try them! i so enjoyed reading about your pregnancies at the holiday, remnds me of my mom who had 6 of us and 3 of them in Dec as well. I do the cooking for 3 of us (hubby, fil and myself). Then we head to my sister and my parents head there. It is my favorite holiday with all the time shared with family.
