Please send me your address at magicintheair@att.net so I can get this out to you. CONGRATS and ENJOY!

This week I am super excited to introduce three new designers Danielle Lord, Kim McDonald and Selma Stevenson. All bring their own unique talents of inspiration to the team. Don't stop with just looking at their cards posted here, but make sure you also check out their blogs as well. The links are just above their posted cards below. Also, I would also like to introduce to you our November Guest Designer Lisa Cook, she too, brings us a lot of talent and inspiration. Make sure you check out her blog as well. So, why don't you join me in a big welcome for all the new Team Designers and this months Guest Designer!!

I realize that not everyone out there celebrates Thanksgiving, it is a tradition for the good ole USA, so how could I not have an image for that? So I went for a nice traditional cornucopia. I think we all have things to be thankful for no matter where we live on this globe, so I hope that even if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving you could still use this wonderful image to create another type of card for harvest, fall or of thanks. So, in the mist of snagging this free image this week I want to challenge all (lurkers included) to leave a message for the designers and also include something you are thankful for on a daily basis. I am certainly thankful for all of you who participate on a regular basis and also for all the people that have supported and encouraged me along this journey.

Also, I have had a few people inquire about using my images in other challenges and by all means, yes! The only thing I would ask is that you credit me for the image.

Now, the main focus for the challenge is still the image, but I have included two sentiments for you to use as well, but it is not necessary; that is up to you. You could either use them on the outside of your card with the image or on the inside, or not at all. :O) But they are there if you would like to use/have them.

(C) "Cornucopia"

("Cornucopia" is no longer available for free... I am in a process of getting a website up and going to make available to you not only these images, but many more originals by me in digital form and in the near future photopolymer as well... it's all in "the works"! In just hours a new free image will be released)

Nilla brings us this weeks challenge. You will need to use the image "Cornucopia" I have provided and then Nilla wants you to use buttons on your creation.

The prize for this week’s random drawing for whoever participates in this weeks challenge and links their work back here is:

Now for the oh so talented...

Thank you for the lovely new image and sentiments. I'm thankful for God in my life to guide me each step of the way.

A warm welcome to the new DT members and this month's guest designer. The whole DT makes beautiful cards.

Christa said...

Thanks so much for another beautiful image! I need to make a few more Thanksgiving cards, since we'll be celebrating by ourselves again this year and missing our big families!

On a daily basis, I'm probably most thankful for my glasses. I couldn't do much without them!

Anonymous said...

Another gorgeous image, Nina! Thanks for including the sentiments, too! Now to get some time to play with these. :-)

P.S. I clicked Post too quickly -- LOL! I meant to add that I am most thankful for the continued presence of God in my daily life, for always knowing that He is there, loving and guiding and protecting me.

Marsha said...

I love the image and the samples are absolutely beautiful !

Sheila said...

I love this beautiful image. Thank you for sharing it. I'm thankful for my wonderful husband and precious daughters. Being a 4 time cancer survivor, I thank God for the blessing of life.

Lynne Phelps said...

One of the things I have to be thankful for is you and the images you share! However, the link on the second sentiment is not working - when I click it, nothing happens. I tried in three different browsers but the link is not working on "May the bounty of the season..." Help!

Nina said...

Lynn, I have re-uploaded it so it is now in working order! :O) thanks!

louk said...

I just found your website last week and really appreciate your beautiful images. I don't know how to upload my finished products yet but will try soon. I love the sayings and have lots of family to make cards for. Great designs by the team!

"Kirby" (KrB) said...

What a gorgeous image, Nina, and thanks for the sentiments, too. They're perfect. I'm grabbing this one for sure. Well done!

berg4 said...

Nina-thank you for the cornucopia, you just made making all my Thanksgiving cards so easy! Thank you so much. Every day I am thankful for my husband. He is so thoughtful. Every day he surprises me with a RAK. Every Monday I am thankful for the free digi, and participating in this challenge.

PatsyB said...

In this time of worry and uncertainty, I am thankful for all the blessings that the good Lord has given me. As my Mom used to say, "There are always people worse off than you are!" That means there are people who haven't found this website!! Thanks for the images you share and the great cards I can case.

Carol said...

Nina-you are so generous with your digi images. Currently, my husband and I are traveling in our RV and digi images are a must for me! (They take no space :0)!) I plan to download this weeks image and hopefully create before long!!
Thanks again,

Pattie G said...

Nina, thanks for these freebies. They are beautiful. I just added my creation to Mr Linky. Let me know what you think.


craftieodmae said...

Hi Nina,

Thank you again for another wonderful image! I used it on a card that I posted above.

Thank you again!

Thank you for the images. They are gorgeous. The cards above are beautiful. Someday maybe I'll be able to color not like a five year old.
