Create a Thanksgiving Card with MISTI ( A Video!)

Hello friends!
I made this card in a video a while ago...I almost didn't share it because I am not sure if it's "good enough". Our Canadian Thanksgiving is almost coming to an end, so I guess I'd better share it on the last day of our Thanksgiving long weekend.
Giving thanks
We celebrated our Canadian Thanksgiving and enjoyed a feast-turkey, roasted potatoes and vegetables,  stuffing, cranberry sauce...and pumpkin pie.

I am not gonna lie...making videos is a lot of work. This particular video has about an hour of taping and re-taping. I watched, re-watched, edited and re-edited...and whittled it down to 7:42.
You can watch the You Tube video here
You can see the entire process how I created this card with MISTI --->The Most Incredible Stamping Tool. I can't say enough about this invaluable stamp positioner.

I truly appreciate your wonderful support and feedback on my video-making.
Gobble, gobble!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Thank you so much Virginia for putting together this wonderful video using MISTI. I just got one and had no idea how to start. But now I do after watching your video. This is so wonderful. Now I will never get uneven stamping of my images and sentiments again! Gorgeous card too Virginia. You always create such stunning cards, applying various of techniques and making them look so easy! I'm learning a lot from you. Thank you for all your beautiful inspirations!

Beeee-u-ti-ful shading you created on this card. Love the image but you made it come alive. The video was easy to follow. Like that you explain yourself so well. That turkey looks yummy, too. Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy belated Thanksgiving to you! Thanks for the wonderful video! I love how your pumpkins turned out! Your idea to clear emboss the images and then blend the background makes a lot of sense!
