Happy Turkey Day!

Happy Thanksgiving Friends!


I made this adorable card last night to give to my nephew today using Lawn Fawn’s super cute Turkey Day stamp set. The patterned paper, note card and leaf are also all Lawn Fawn Products.  The stitched circles are from MFT (and probably one of my favorite ‘go to’ die sets!)

November calendar page

It took me 25 days to get around to it but I finally have my Mom’s November calendar page done. She still wanted it so she’ll have a complete set for next year. I chose MFT’s Pure Innocence Cornucopia and had a blast paper piecing her :-)

The Simple Things

Hi everyone!


I finally sat down at my desk tonight and made a card…lots of stuff has been going on and I haven’t been feeling all that crafty.  I used my Gina K Designs Stamp TV kit from last month to create this Thanksgiving card.  I used the sketch at Mojo Monday and would also like to enter it into the Thanksgiving challenge at Cuttin and Stampin.
