Hi Friends! I hope you had a nice weekend. Today is Thanksgiving, here in Canada, so “Happy Thanksgiving” to my fellow Canadians! We had a nice roast chicken dinner with family yesterday and today I’m making our turkey supper with all the trimmings. I’d have to say that this is my one of my favourite meals: turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, veggies, candied sweet potatoes, and fresh dinner rolls. We’re usually too full for dessert but I LOVE pumpkin pie so I may make one later this week, to enjoy after all our turkey leftovers!
It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is already here and even harder to believe that Christmas is right around the corner! My mind is in full Christmas swing, planning and sorting my gift giving, decorating, baking and of course, cards! The card I’m sharing with you today is one of the designs for my cards this year. I’ll be making more using different designer series papers and colours but with the same layout. It’s an easy card to make and lots of fun to assemble. I hope you enjoy this tutorial, which is also my submission for this month’s “Leaders Project Sheet Group”!
