Happy Thanksgiving




I've been enjoying having my youngest daughter and her family here for Thanksgiving weekend. Here in Canada, we celebrate Thanksgiving the second weekend in October.  Officially,  it's the second Monday, but usually that's a travelling day for people and Thanksgiving dinner is eaten on either Saturday or Sunday. We had ours last night complete with turkey and pumpkin pie and played a few games of Yahtzee afterwards. I watched the Great British Baking Show with my daughter and it wasn't until I got ready for bed that I remembered that I still had a blog post to write! So this is a quick post to wish you Happy Thanksgiving, show you some card samples and a video from Stampin' Up!, and give myself a bit of a holiday break!


  • This is a card I made specifically for my Thanksgiving greeting to all of you! It's the first time I've inked up my Pleasant Pheasants stamp set. This is one of the fall images in the set. I coloured it in using Stampin' Blends and die cut it with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
  • You can see a fragment of the Chicken Wire Elements and the Country Lane Designer Series Paper between the front die cut and the Galvanized Metal embossed using the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder. 


























These two cards are ones I made for Stampin' Up! friends who recently promoted, one to Silver Elite and one to Gold Elite!  The one who promoted to Silver Elite also earned the incentive trip to Greece! I thought the Bethlehem Edgelit dies with the roofs paper pieced with Pacific Point looked just like Greece! What do you think?

I'll leave you with a video from Stampin' Up!:


If you're one of my Canadian readers, enjoy your holiday today!
