Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi there!

Happy Friday to you!  I've been on vacation this week and have been busy every day except Wednesday.  I wanted to get more done especially the fall cleaning.  Fun, huh?  But, I did get one room done.  Some windows cleaned and crafts items organized.  I just have to plug along and get it done when I can.  Anyways, it's been a very fun week getting together with friends and family to celebrate my birthday, which is this Sunday.  My husband will take me out to dinner tomorrow.  Some place other than McD's I!  Seriously, he's a sweetie, so I'm sure it'll be a nice dinner. 

I enjoyed some creative time and started my Thanksgiving cards.  I'm entering the above card over at Cupcake Inspirations.  The theme is fall leaves. 

 I started with a kraft card base and layered with brown and orange.  I used Tim Holtz distress inks of mustard seed and spiced marmalade onto cream colored paper and stamped leaves at random.  The sentiment was colored with copics.  I added ribbon and gems to finish off the card.

Thank you for viewing my card here today.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend, hugs!
