Happy Turkey Day!

Happy Turkey Day, y'all!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day and remembering what they are thankful for. I am so thankful that my family is healthy (even my 4 year old is pretty healthy, despite his asthma issues), happy and able to spend the holiday together. I am also thankful that my nephew came home from Iraq & Afghanistan safe. He was deployed many times over the last 8 years. He just finished his service in the Marine Corps and is now a civilian. I am thankful to the men and women who risk their lives, serving in the military, so that we may live safely in this awesome country! What are you Thankful for?

Today, I have a quick card to share with you. I finally got started on my family Christmas cards! So far, I have made 45, but still have another 70 or so to make. I have to keep it relatively simple when making that many.

I got the idea for this card from Geny Cassady's instructions HERE. I used PTI's Snowflake Serenade stamp set. I have a lot of SU paper left over still, so I used Not Quite Navy, Old Olive and Very Vanilla cardstock along with matching inks. I also used Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip ink. Lastly, I added some clear Stickles to some of the snowflakes for a little shimmer. I think it is elegant, yet simple - just how I like it when I make multiples of something! I will probably make some other color variations of this card, since I am now out of Navy!

Have a wonderful holiday and do not eat too much! LOL! It's the one day you are supposed to eat too much! Can't wait for all of the yummy food later today! :)

I have a quick poem to share with you that someone emailed me:

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

Eat lots and have fun shopping it off tomorrow! ~ Tori
