Happy Thanksgiving

I hope y’all are making memories today.  Be thankful for all your blessings.  Family, friends, food and festivities abound this time of year.  But the memories last a lifetime.

We’re doing good.  Our health is not getting worse at the moment and for that I’m thankful.  We’re together with a roof over our heads and food on the table. Life is good.

Our weather is overcast and cool today as another cold front passes through. Not complaining! This is ever so much better than howling winds and snow.

Last night we had a wonderful time with family. Some we haven’t seen in a long time. Some we’ve never met.  SaraJane and Jerry hosted the Blythe family cousins with a BBQ.  I should mention that all of these family members are from Jim’s side of the family. Cousins, second cousins, spouses etc etc etc.  I didn’t count but it was a full house. A tradition of sharing this holiday rotates each year. And they travel from far away. 

Handmade cards because:

No one displays an email on the mantle
or shows off a tweet on the fridge

or saves a Facebook post in a box of treasures

For the year of 2019 I've challenged myself to 500 cards think I can do it?

 28 November 2019 276 cards

These cards were fun to make using a template for 6 inch paper.  Of course some mixing and matching with other bits and pieces helped a bit.

Love how this turned out.  Stampin' Up! supplied the paper, stamps and dies.  Though it's difficult to tell, the frame is a rope die, very fiddly to cut and glue onto the card

this card is another one using bits and pieces

This Paper Pumpkin kit and so many elements that I'm still making the cards I sent out for Thanksgiving.  Perhaps you got one?

Look another same paper, bits and pieces.  When I say same paper, I mean both sides of the paper are pretty.  You can also see the dry embossed design on this one

Using up Let It Snow DSP from Stampin' Up!

Young Livings Aroma Siez Essential Oil Blend is probably an oil that you've never heard of.  A blend of lavender, peppermint, basil, marjoram and cypress and it smells divine!  Mix with a carrier oil and use for circulation and pain relief.  Great for long car drives or flights.  Your legs will thank you! Soothing enough to lower your blood pressure....are we there yet?

All is right in our world
