Thankful medallion

This was the Thanksgiving card I sent out this month.  I wanted to go a totally different direction from yesterday’s card, and I’d call this 180° different! This medallion makes me think of wheat and grass plumes, which is why … Continue reading

Paisley Thanks

Three Autumn Trees

Scarecrow!
