Friend Thanksgiving Card 1 for PPCC blog no 440 DT inspiration

There will be 2 blog posts this morning for PPCC #440 using same image just varied in coloring and card elements! I decided to take the girl "Enjoying the Rain" digital image and morph it into a friendship Thanksgiving card.

I like to send Thanksgiving cards to my close immediate family plus aunts and uncles along with a few friends, but only have had 1 made so far for USA's annual November celebrating.

Version 1's layout is clean and simple=

A. & B. the orange cardstock base is a scrap section leftover from partial set added into my 2019 pulled stockpile papers to use back in mid-June; for FB groups: 100 Pattern Papers Challenge group (2019 goal to use at least 100 sheets of designer papers and/or cardstock) and Bash Your Scrapbook Stash group (June's Paper Pad Madness challenge).

Here's a photo of the partial set of mottled cardstock sheets that I started using on June 15th:

A few more scanned photos at different size ratios:

The striped background paper was a gift from an online crafting friend who was part of a junk journaling group I used to belong to. She decided to clean off her desk and send me a box full of her treasures! That was about 1.5 years ago! I've been hoarding all those lovelies she sent me!

The 2 image mounting papers are scraps placed into a Thanksgiving theme tray about 2 weeks ago when I started re-organizing my garage craft zone!

Clean and simple layout with this version! The next one is a mixed media attempt with a non-traditional layout.

Be all-weather dependable friends! I'm so grateful for mine.
