Best wishes to all my American friends for a happy, healthy blessed Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope you have plans to share time with your loved ones, either friends, family or both! I am looking forward to spending time with John’s family this year….and it is my dad’s birthday so hopefully I’ll get to say “Happy Birthday” to him as well!
Today’s quick card uses the sketch from Sunday Stamps, which happens to be my favorite sketch, turned upside down:
I knew I wanted to use Banner Blessings for my card, which is a combination thank you/Thanksgiving card! I used some papers from Farmers Market and stamped my verse in Rich Razzleberry on Very Vanilla, (although I think I should have used Blackberry Bliss):
My simple embellishments are a few stitched leaves (Lawn Fawn) and some crochet trim!
And here is my little pilgrim, showing the hat she made in kindergarten!

Hey, peeps! It’s Tuesday, and Try Stampin’ On Tuesday has another fabulous sketch for you to try this week! Here you go:
The twist/theme is Christmas Colors/Peace on Earth as well! I had this lovely CTMH set with a peace-inspired definition tag that I thought would be perfect:
I stamped the tag in Garden Green, did some sponging, then mounted it on a mat of Garden Green and added the “peace” from SU’s Christmas Greetings. It’s hard to see, but the banners are embossed, and my embellishments feature silver stars, shabby seam binding, punched greenery and silver twine! Designer paper is from MME’s All is Bright line, mounted on a Garden Green card:
You can never go wrong with traditional red and green!
I hope you’ll play along with our sketch this week! Check out the really pretty cards the other designers created at the TSOT blog, and share yours as well, or add it to our FB page! Thanks for visiting today!
Another shot from the aquarium….there is a bubble that extends up into the water and you can pop inside and get a fish-eye view! VERY cool!

Happy Monday, peeps! I usually try to do a Christmas card on Mondays, but I wanted to play with this color challenge from Inkspire Me, and I needed a sympathy card:
I used the Match The Sketch sketch as well:
Truthfully, I don’t think I did either of them much justice, but after fooling around for a couple of hours, I just had to let it go:
I used a verse from Our Daily Bread’s Scripture Collection 2 along with some embossing, pearls and a cut-out flower from a past Paper Pumpkin kit. It needed some grounding, so I added a black mat and black ribbon:
I hate to have to make these, and this past week, I needed four of them! Yikes! Be sure to come back tomorrow for my Try Stampin’ on Tuesday card!
A trip to the Camden, NJ, Aquarium was on the agenda this weekend! Lamby and Dominic went along too!
They had a blast…more pix to follow! Enjoy your day!
