Happy Turkey Day!

Pin It

Thanksgiving is just a week away! Do you have your stretchy pants ready? Just kidding. Although I love seeing my extended family on Thanksgiving, turkey and the rest of the Thanksgiving fixin’s are not my favorite meal. Why couldn’t the pilgrims eat pasta? And chocolate? Can’t forget the chocolate.

Anyhow, whether you like turkey or not, this little guy is looking for a pardon this year. He would like you to eat some of his farm yard friends like the cow or pig. Or how about Tofurky this year? Do you think the farmer will be able to find him in his cute disguise?

The new Meljen’s Design challenge is “Thanksgiving or Thank you”. Melissa is putting some new Thanksgiving themed images in the store today. Aren’t the perfect for the challenge or any last minute Thanksgiving projects you might have?

If you like the paper I used, check out my blog candy! The paper I used is from the Darling Dear paper pad.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!

Tofu Turkey? YUK. Bring on the turkey and all the fixins' I love Thanksgiving, well everything except the clean up. Solution for chocolate - chocolate cream pie. MMMMMmmmm

Your card is too cute. I love the burlap and MelJen's designs are hilarious.

Hope your Thanksgiving is utterly fantastic. Hugs Linda

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
