Caution! Holidays approaching quickly!

One week to Thanksgiving and only 5 weeks until Christmas, 
how did that happen?  
Today I have 2 Thanksgiving cards to show you.

For the first Thanksgiving card I've used a free digital image from 
A Day for Daisies.  I added a simple stamped sentiment, wood trinkets which I colored with markers, some twine and a small bird charm.  I embossed the kraft background paper with a houndstooth pattern so that I could enter it in the current A Day for Daisies Challenge #109 - Houndstooth

and these other fun challenges:
Daring Cardmakers Challenge - Something Old, Something New  (wood birds are old, charm is new)
Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - Thanksgiving
Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge - Thanksgiving/Thankful
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Thanks/Thanksgiving
Shopping Our Stash Challenge #178 - Thankful/Thanksgiving

The inside of the second card reads 
" Sure will moose you on Thanksgiving!"
I've used the precolored digital image and sentiment from Deedee's Digi of the Month Set, Mix it up! And I'll be entering this in the Deedee's November Progressive Challenge. 
 I kept this free of embellishments so it would have a more masculine feel. 

I'll also be entering this card in these challenges:
Melonheadz Friends Challenge - Add a Sentiment 
Penny's Challenge #204 - Anything Goes
A Crafty Mess Challenge #1 - Anything Goes
