A Happy Thanksgiving and an Angel Card

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Our's was really awesome...wonderful people and wonderful food. The dry brine was really a success! That turkey had to be the moistest and best tasting I've ever had - and I wasn't the only one who thought so! It was fabulous to have Lauren here a few extra days than the usual weekend.

I think this card is the first Christmas card I created this year. I start way ahead of time and I kind of forget by time the season comes around. I love the vintage image and, of course, used lots of glitter on it. I surrounded it with a handstamped frame and paper from the Wassail collection from Basic Grey. The paper for the star was first embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Have a wonderful week and a great start to the Christmas season!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hard to believe that Thanksgiving is already here. Lauren and Paul will arrive on Wednesday. Can't wait for them to get here! We've started thawing the turkey. We're trying a dry brine this year. Have you ever tried that? Apparently two days before cooking, the entire turkey is covered in salt and wrapped in cheese cloth. It's supposed to keep the turkey moist. We'll see... What I'm worried about right now is that it won't be thawed out by Tuesday morning.

I love the image of the sleigh on it's way to Grandma's house for Thanksgiving. These two cards were made awhile ago. Always have to work ahead. Right now I'm about to finish all the Christmas orders and I've been working on some new Valentine things. Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Fairies and Frogs

Hi! Hope everyone's weekend has been wonderful! It's cooled off quite a bit...feels more like November. I've used this image before (on a journal). I really like it and decided to use it again on this card. When we moved into our house (21 years ago) there was a little albino frog (or was it a toad) living in our basement. I remember being amazed that he'd been there long enough to lose his color. Lauren and I worried about him for awhile, but then decided he'd been fine for quite some time...

Have a wonderful week!

Happy Birthday

Hi! Hope you've had a great weekend. Lauren was here and I always love when she's at home. Here are a couple of birthday cards that have the cutest little girl vintage images. The polka dot paper and cupcake is from the new Nook and Pantry collection from Basic Grey

The pretty scallop on the round card is cut with the Cricut Storybook cartridge. Have a happy week!

A Little Note

Again, I love these scalloped cards! I think this is one of my favorite cards ever... That little bird is so cute! Can you believe it's already November? Where does the time go?
