Let Them Eat Pie

It's hard to make Thanksgiving and Christmas cards when the temp is in high 90's and the days are long. However, I had some help from my dear House Mouse friends Mudpie and Muzzy. They're up to their usual - you know - pigging, or should I say, 'mousing' out on one of their favorite treats - Pumpkin Pie! Today they're sharing their holiday treat with the folks over at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, Let's Get Fruity. As this card shows, they've certainly taken the expression 'Nothing exceeds like excess' to heart, with gobs and gobs of Liquid Applique whipped cream piled on Amanda's latest culinary treat which is colored with Copics and mounted on Bazzill cardstock and some DP from my stash. The sentiment, well, I cheated and bought a roll of 50 Happy Thanksgiving stickers. I know, maybe the lazy way, but it worked for me! So here they are. I just hope they don't get tummy aches from overindulging, but if so, I'm sure Amanda will do her best to make them feel better.

This is one of a set of holiday cards going to OWH very soon. Have to make early, you know, 'cuz they're going far, far away and I don't want them to miss the boat, so to speak! So, gobble gobble everyone, and happy turkey day to all!
BTW, I would be so remiss if I didn't enter this in OWH Stars and Stamps challenge this week, Thanksgiving  Any Hero card! Wow think about it! Two challenges for me this week - must be some kind of record. But this was too good an opportunity to pass up.
