For my card I used the Hero Arts "So Thankful Set"
As most of you know, Im not a big fan of COLORING. Its just not for me.   I especially avoid coloring people whenever possible.... Sooooo, it took a lot for me to have to ink up this adorable Hero Arts stamp set knowing it had to get colored in, A LOT!!!  LOL... but I did it! It isnt the best, but its done! And that my friends is a huge accomplishment for me.  A step in the right direction, right?  :) heheh
