HMSC17, HMCC13 All I Want For Christmas is The Time For Cookies

It's Saturday, yeh.. It is also day 4 of the H&M Blog Hop. I have always loved Thanksgiving. My Aunt made the BEST chicken & dressing and always cooked 4 or 5 vegetables. My mom did not cook veggies that much bc my brother would not eat them except my Aunt's house so I always looked forward to eating at Aunt Neva's (yep, I am named after her). So my question today is What is your favorite traditional dish for Thanksgiving dinner?

Here is another really kewl set from H&M Stamp Company that I used for today's sketch/color challenge.
This is not what was in my head but I think I have some cob webs up there due to all of the recent spooky creations. LOL. The images from this project are from a set called "Christmas Is Time for Cookies" and the sentiment is from "Al I want for Christmas". These sets can be found at H & M Stamp Company. This sentiment set is so neat with phrases for the inside of the card as weel. I stamped the tin filed with chocolates on white then on my dp and the plate of cookies on white. Images were colored with prismacolor pencils then blended w/gamsol medium. I applied crystal effects to the candy and the milk in the glass. Hard to see well in the photo. The sentiment was stamped in green galore then punched using my new wide oval punch but I wanted it layered too so I had to cut those by hand. I did paper piecing for the tin. The images and layers ended up so large I decided to not do any photo corners,etc.
