Dies R Us ~ Giving Thanks

Hello friends~  Happy November!  It's the first of the month so that means there's a new challenge starting over at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog and the theme is "Giving Thanks".  
I pulled out a couple of vintage bird images from my stash and created two cards for this festive occasion.
The Impression Obsession "Give Thanks" dies is one of my favorite "go-to" dies for this time of year.

I added some doodling to the letters on this next card.  Which one do you like better?  
The leaves from from Frantic Stamper "Assorted Foliage are so pretty, cut from textured mustard colored cardstock and sponged lightly with Candied Apple Disress Ink.  I realized while I was posting these cards that this is actually a spring image.  I guess I was too focused on the colors to realize that those are forsythia sprigs and a robin.  Oh well, lets just pretend its fall... ok?  ;o)

Here's a list of the dies I used that can be found in the Dies R Us store

Marianne Designs Basic Distressed Square (Special Order) 

I hope you'll visit the Dies R Us Challenge Blog and join in on the fun. 

Thanks for stopping by!

You know I never thought of the image being spring, they both look great... I do love the doodling you did on the second card sentiment, I so love the way the leaves are floating on each card too, gorgeous!
