We're celebrating friends and family today-I made a card to send to our Thanksgiving dinner hostess.
The Stamp is from Close To My Heart. The paper is from a stack from JoAnn's. Ribbon is from Stampin' Up, bling from Wal-Mart. It's a simple card, no excuse not to send a thank you when you can make one quick and easily, and sometimes we forget what's really important in life. We get caught up in all the trimmings and the extras, but when you have family near by and can enjoy a day with them, that's something to be Thankful for. A simple sentiment that reminds us of what is important as we move into the Thanksgiving holiday season.
My family always tries to have Thanksgiving dinner together. The food, the laughter, the fun.. is all worth the extra work that goes into it. We each have our specialty that we make... my daughter makes the No Bake Cookies.. they're an appetizer with our bunch.. I make the dressing, one pan with oysters, one pan without..my sister makes the ham or the turkey and I do the other.. her two daughters, and my other daughter always bring whatever else we want. We can count on a table full of desserts, pie, cake, candy, and yes there are vegetables.. and I love Sweet Potatoes and my granddaughter loves the marshmallow on them. The guys move to one room to watch the football while the girls find something to do.. sometimes games, or the Christmas movies on, but last year we took advantage of the preseason sales and shopped! That way the guys didn't realize how long we were gone.. but we got some great bargins!! I hope your Thanksgiving is a wonderful day.
Head over to Anita and Bugs to see her great creation!
