silly turkey

HAPPY FRIDAY!!! This week has seriously gone by FAST...zoom, zoom! Just a question...did you get everything done that you needed or wanted to? I tried but I think I'm perpetually behind. Ugh!

Anyway, I wan to share with you the first card that I made for the SNSS blog. This silly turkey just makes the cutest cards. I mean really...how could he not make you smile? The background is made with the Autumn Cuttlebug embossing folder and some Debbie Mumm paper that I got for my birthday. I added a couple of strips of ribbon that I got at the $1 spot at Target, colored the turkey to match and there you have it! What family member wouldn't like this card? I can't wait to send it along!

I don't know if any of you follow PaperTrey Ink and their new releases but this month they are starting a series of releases of templates called Timeless Templates which are made by Lauren Meader. Why am I mentioning this? Because I believe these templates will definitely make our gift giving easier. Please go HERE to check it out. Wanna know the best thing? The templates only cost $5 each, you download them on your computer (therefore you can use them as many times as you'd like), print them on your printer, each template includes an idea sheet with several idea for use, AND Lauren has done an amazing job with them! Go see Lauren's blog HERE. You'll see wonderful ideas and feel her passion for her product. PTI and Lauren are even offering the Stocking Stuffer template for FREE just so you can see the wonderful quality of the templates!! Yep, free!!! Now you want to go check it out don't you? And, yes...I downloaded the free template and bought the other two while ordering some more of the wonderful white PTI card stock. Go check it out!

So there you have it...my card and enabling for the day! I hope you will make today just a wonderful day!

Oh my! I'm loving this cutie!

And, that Target dollar spot is pure evil. I find things I HAVE to have that I never HAD to have before, and then there's $30 worth of dollar stuff in my basket. UGH! Love your ribbon, though!

And yes, this week is over! What the hay happened???
