The Big Day is Almost Here!

Dear friends,
Here it is, Thanksgiving Eve!

We are packing up our car and heading to our beloved Calistoga in the
beautiful Napa Valley. It is extra--beautiful in fall with the vineyards aflame with color. Can't wait! We will be connecting with loved ones, enjoying the warm and healing mineral water pools and relaxing. Oh, yes! There will be some delicious food, of course!

This is another of the Thanksgiving cards that I made this year and I think it is my favorite. I can't help but smile at this adorable turkey by Neat and Tangled - even the little dots are cute, don't ya think?

The tag die from Hero Arts (I shortened it a bit) and the sentiment is an old one from Crafty Secrets. I love this embossed wood grain card stock from Ellen Hutson - it is so rich! I die cut (Paper Smooches) the leaf from some wide cork ribbon that I got at Michaels and attached it with Tim Holtz's Tiny Attacher. The top is a strip that I made from several scraps of patterned paper.

Wishing you and your families a very blessed Thanksgiving. Thanks for the visit - stay safe and happy.

Another Thanksgiving Card!

Happy Tuesday bloggers!

This is one of the three designs I made for Thanksgiving cards this year. We send/deliver quite a number and I don't like mass-producing too many of one design.

 Actually, for the cards of this design that went to our neighbors (hand-delivered) I made this into a cute shaker card with an assortment of fall-colored beads and sequins behind the leaf. Very cute and fun! The weather wasn't cooperating then, so I couldn't take a photo of them.

This gold-embossed sentiment is an old one from Stampin Up that I got at a used stamp sale. The leaf die is also an old one, from Cuttlebug.

I am trying to remember to use embossing folders more often - I have a huge collection and they add so much, especially on a flat card. This one is from Sizzix.

Things are getting busy around here. I love seeing the families of the neighbors arriving with all of their goodies and love. We will be packing up our car tomorrow. What a joyous time of sharing!

Take care and thanks for the visit!

A Thanksgiving Card

Hello, friends!

It has been awhile since I have posted. Life happens and it is all good. We are so happy in our new home and our new community - so much to do and learn, great places to explore and everyone is so nice and friendly. Happy times.

I am sharing with you to day a card that we made in our card class here in Sun City Lincoln Hills. I have been taking the class for a couple of months now and I really enjoy it. Our teacher, Dottie, is a total doll and such an inspiration. She has so many tricks to teach even this old cardmaking dog.

This, as is everything in our class, is made with Stampin' Up products. I don't have much experience with them, but I love how all the products are color-coordinated. It takes lots of the guesswork out of designing.

Thanks for the visit. I imagine that all my US friends are busy getting ready for the holiday - my favorite of the entire year.

Take good care and enjoy!
