Over the River and Through the Woods

 Hello and Happy November!  

I don't know about you, but I am super excited for Thanksgiving.  Tradition is my jam so a full turkey dinner even if it is just for two is always on the menu. 
 And speaking of tradition, do you have certain songs that you associate with holidays?  How about Over the River and Through the Woods?  Oh my, that song is Thanksgiving to a t!  
This image and scene reminds me of that song;  Travelling to grandmother's house, which we always did as kids.  So many memories!  

I used the fabulous Vintage Van Stamp Set-gotta love the pumpkins!  I used distress inks and Ken Oliver Colorburst Watercolors to color the scene.  The van is stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink.  The trees were done using the Scene Silhouettes -Trees Stamp Set, inked them up with distress inks and then spritzed with water before stamping onto Arches Watercolor Paper.  Sentiment is from the Fall Remix-Autumn Splendor Stamp Set.  Did you notice the license plate?!

I am entering in the Paper Players Challenge, Turkey Time.  

As well as Tic Tac Toe Challenge~
I have used Everything but the wreath in the tic tac toe squares.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

  1. This is FABULOUS!! Such great memories of going to Grandma's house....and when my little one was younger, we literally DID go over the river (well, a little creek) and through the woods to Grandma's house...she lived right behind us, LOL! Your coloring is super, I love the punkins on top of the van, and it all is just such a fun card! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Players this week as well as Tic Tac Toe!

  2. Oh, how fabulous! We always traveled to Grandmas house, too, for Thanksgiving!

  3. I'm with you Lee Ann, a traditional Thanksgiving dinner is the best! And we always went to Grandma's house when I was young, although not in a fabulous VW van! Love the scene you created and those pumpkins on top look snug enough not to escape enroute LOL! I'm so glad you joined us this week at The Paper Players as well as the Tic Tac Toe challenge!

  4. Just love this scene! reminds me of going to grandmas for the holidays...such awesome memories for me. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players!

  5. LeeAnn we don't celebrate thanksgiving here in the UK but your fun scene makes me feel like I'm definitely missing out! Love your camper van with the pumpkins on top and those trees are beautiful. Thanks for sharing with us over at The Paper Players this week!

  6. Wow! I simply cannot get that song out of my head. What a lovely design and I can remember those trips to my grandmother's at Thanksgiving. Thank you so much for playing along with us this week over at Tic Tac Toe challenge.
