Happy Thanksgiving Card with Inkadinkado

Ever have one of those times when even the smallest little card is so darn challenging you just want to throw it in the trash & totally forget the whole thing? Well, I'm "persistent" (now I know some might say that's a nice word for "stubborn", but I prefer persistent -- just like I'm sometimes "precise" but never "anal"!) Hee-Hee!!! Anyway, our Costco (YES, Costco!) had 3 sets of Inkadinkado stamps, each containing 128 stamps, an acrylic block & one black ink for $19.89 ! Who could resist?! I actually only got 2 sets, but since I just "blew my wad" at CKC, well . . . . The big problem with Costco's "seasonal" items is that if you don't grab it when you first see it, you'll probably miss out totally. They'll have wonderful scrapbooking items now through the end of the year & then "poof" -- they're mostly gone until next fall. So, after many mishaps & changes in paper choices, etc., here's my little Thanksgiving card!!! ;-)
Paper: Speckled Kraft Cardstock
Stamps: Inkadinkado's Holiday Seasons Clear Stamps
Ink: Tsukineko's Pigments: Bamboo, Paprika & Brown
Tools: Spellbinders' Wizard & Long Rectangle Nesties

Wow! That's a nice deal for a stamp set!!! Too bad we don't have Costco here..(no Michael's, no Joann's, no Hobby Lobby...and the list goes on) :(

Your card is fab Marge, as usual. :)

Thanks for the tip about Costco. I saw this set at ACMoore and just loved it, so maybe I'll have to venture over to Costco this week. :) Cute card, by the way!
