For my grandfather who is fond of apples! The Valley Forge stamp is technically a Christmas stamp-but the colors matched and prayer & Thanksgiving go together.
For our goddaughter - I thought this envelope ended up being "cheerful"
I just LOVE those "We Give Thanks" stamps!
Attempt at oak tree to mirror card
The card looked like pencil art, so I used a colored pencil for the tree.
This card had roses in a pumpkin.
Thought the peppers worked well.
Love the Illinois stamp-so pretty & perfect for Thanksgiving.
The card had blackberries on it, and the football & dog stamps were to represent what we plan to watch on Thanksgiving.
Gave up on the oak leaves, & went generic with the leaves.
For a letter to a great aunt whose dad used to work on a train & part of the letter was about packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.
This is probably my favorite of the envelopes! Ducks flying from a fall lake! I measured against a postmark on a card I received to be sure the ducks would be canceled...
And finally, here's what went in the care package. Thanksgiving classics: turkey, cranberries, and pecan pie...all a little different. Plus M&M candy corn, a Mounds Bar (as I normally make coconut pie), popcorn, & Uno Avengers as game playing is always a part of our family Thanksgivings. And, not pictured are some homemade pumpkin cookies.
The name “Smiles Sent Saturday” denotes my hope these things I mailed made the people who got them smile.
