So Grateful For You

Well, it is the day before Thanksgiving...are you ready to go yet? I have to tell you that when we first moved to Washington I had never made a turkey myself. The kids and I had always gone to a relatives house for Thanksgiving that only necessitated a side dish. While that was nice and easy I have to say that I really enjoy the fulfillment that I get from having made the entire meal myself...okay, not myself, Todd helps (a lot) but you get the idea. This year we are making a turkey breast rather than an entire turkey since it will just be four of us. Smiley from Should make prep much easier. Today I will write out my schedule of cooking for tomorrow, make my pecan pie, and do a little cleaning. Should be a busy day! OH! And, I get to watch my friends little guy today. He is 10 months old and just adorable. I can't wait!

Alright, enough of my blah, blah, blahing! Today, I have a clean and simple card for you that is based off the CAS sketch card that Lori Tecler did on SCS. I did cut my card into kinda an odd shape so that the circle could come off the side a little without being to large to fit into a regular size envelope. Anyway, the image is another from The Stamping Boutique and it is AJ the Pilgrim. Isn't he just adorable? I just used some Tangerine Tango cardstock for the base, embossed it a bit, added some ribbon and voila! Super easy and conveys a heartfelt message.

Just a little note for you guys...The Stamping Boutique is offering 35% off its images this week so hop on over there to purchase the images you've been wanting!

Alright, that is it! I will be back tomorrow with a Thanksgiving funny so if you have a chance in between all that yummy food stop on back!

Hi IS cute. I would've cut mine down to fit a regular envie as well ;)

I sooo want to stay home and cook the entire meal. I'm like you--very satisfying. Even if we had a couple people come over and I jsut cooked the MAIN stuff... but I've only had that opportunity once in the 14 years I've been married. We live too close to family and so we're obligated to go every single holiday. Listen to me... a time to be thankful for family and I just wanna stay home??! CRAZY I know. It can be fun though. There'll be 14 of us in a little house. My girls and I look forward to seeing my nephews' little girl... now 2 yrs. old. Fun age to play with. Anyways, have a wonderful Thanksgiving and hope your turkey meal comes out nice! =)
