My card is a part of the 2021 Cat Lovers Hop. Click here to link up cat-themed projects and learn more. Art Impressions is the sponsor for today and they have a zillion great sponsors and tons of prizes. Be sure to sign in to be eligible for the prizes. 

I made this Happy Thanksgiving card for my youngest son, Brad. He has a dog like that - Sgt and a cat like that - Abigail. He's in Oregon and I wanted to send him this card to let him know I was thinking of him. #CatLoversHop

I used the 5434 Wood Table Foundation from Art Impressions and a Misti to stamp it using Memento London Fog Ink. Then use a stamp positioner to add the cat from the 2021 Limited Freebie set inked in Tombow N25. Did you know you can request the freebie of your choice from a variety when you place an order of $30 or more with Ai? You can use any animals you want to make this card. Personalize it to who you plan on giving your card to like I did or use your own animals for reference. Use the positioner to stamp the dog from the 4959 Dogs Set inked in N25. You will then use the positioner to stamp the pumpkins and apples from the 5059 Harvest Set in the pots. The roses are from the 5258 Flower Set 4 inked in 177 and 925. The foliage around the roses and in the other pots is from 5126 Foliage Set 4 inked in 177 and 565. Use a Copic fine tip black pen to darken the cat's eyes and stripes and the dog's eyes and nose. The sky is 379. The sentiment is from the 5039 Grateful Hearts Set inked in Versafine onyx black ink. The die used was the 5063 Double Stitched Rectangle A2 die.
