Happy Thanksgiving

I just wanted to take a moment to thank those who follow my blog..I am truly thankful for each one of you. I am also thankful for that I have been blessed with a roof over my head, food on the table, my family, my friends, my church, my job and my pup.
There will be no Funday Friday tomorrow so everyone has time to spend time with their family and friends.

Blessings to you!

Funday Friday - Happy Thanksgiving!

You'll want to make sure to play along this week for a great prize.
Our sponsor this week StampArt!
And if you haven't checked out Kathryn's designs, you're definitely missing out. She has some of the most adorable digis out there. 

 Starts: Friday, November 21st 12:00 AM (eastern time)
Ends: Friday, November 28th 6:00 PM (eastern time)
Here is what I created for this week's challenge:
This is the Autumn Smile digi and it comes with a very cute bonus digi. The sunflowers I fussy cut are part of the bonus (you'll have to check it out to see what else comes with it!). I also put one sunflower on the inside of the card just to add a little extra something. I think I'll be giving this Thanksgiving card to my friend's aunt and uncle. I'll be spending Thanksgiving dinner with them. My mom goes to Florida to be with my one sister and BIL for Thanksgiving so I have about a month to myself. And yes, I do have some essential craft time planned :)   My other siblings and I decided to take it as a "day off holiday" for Thanksgiving a few years ago. My other BIL works long hours so it's a day he and my other sister just get to be together at home, no running around. My brother and SIL spend the day with her family and then don't have to run the kids around from house to house. I love the holidays but sometimes the running around to see everyone gets crazy. I have a dear friend who has decided to stay home for the holidays and let everyone come to her and her kids if they want - what a great idea! Her kids have requested pasta for Thanksgiving...a very un-traditional request but it sounds like a great tradition to start...she will be cooking their favorites.

So what are your Thanksgiving plans and traditions?

It's Funday Friday - Thankfully!

I think the warm weather is officially gone here :(   Last night we had our first flurries. It's definitely a little early for us but at least it wasn't enough to create the "have to go buy bread and milk!" panic...lol! 
 
You'll want to make sure to play along this week for a great prize.
Our sponsors this week are Bugaboo and Limited Runs!

 Starts: Friday, November 14th 12:00 AM (eastern time)
Ends: Friday, November 21st 6:00 PM (eastern time)
Here is what I created for this week's challenge:

Since Fall has definitely arrived here, and Thanksgiving just around the corner, I decided to combine the two. My scan didn't come out too well for this no matter how hard I tried....and I have no clue what that little tag is on the "h"..but it scans in where ever I place it on the scanner. (I truly am technology challenged...lol!) I heat embossed the leaves in clear and then used my daubbers to rub about four different autumn colors around the card. Add a scrap of burlap and a button, and it's a card I would be thankful to receive.

Funday Friday #65

I hope everyone is enjoying the change of seasons. The weather here is starting to get a little cooler and all the leaves are falling. But I have to admit, I think the leaves are much more beautiful on the trees than they are on the ground. I will be spending a lot of time this weekend outside getting them all raked up.  The kicker is I don't have any trees in my front yard and it's covered - the wind has brought the neighborhood pile to me! I actually wish they were all in the back yard so my dog could play in a pile. But enough of me and on to the challenge....drum roll please....
 
You'll want to make sure to play along this week.We don't have a sponsor...
it's even better than a sponsor! 
The winner will get to be a guest designer at Jo's Scrap Shack!

 Starts: Friday, November 7th 12:00 AM (eastern time)
Ends: Friday, November 14t h6:00 PM (eastern time)
Here is what I created for this week's challenge:

I decided to use up some of my Stampin' Up stash that I have been accumulating for this challenge.  The two stamps are from the Thanks for Caring set. I love the look the border punches give, not sure why I don't think to use them more often. It gives it that little extra something to finish off the card I think.


On the inside I punched the border to match so you have plenty of room to right your heartfelt sentiment.
