'Tis the Season...

Hello!  Did you all have a great weekend? Sure hope so.  Today's card has NO stamping.  I used some fab Authentique Wonder paper and a die cut sentiment from that same collection.  I also used my Sugared embossing folder on the red panel.  Added some burlap twine, a paper rose and some holly on the doily.  I like the vintage look.  I love my CAS cards, but I have been having lots of fun with vintage themed cards and projects.  You will be seeing more of that from me mixed in with my usual CAS.

I cooked a big, fat turkey last night!  I have never had to do a big turkey dinner, as my mom has always done Thanksgiving dinner for as long as I can remember for our family.  I decided it was something that I should do, so we cooked a 10 pound turkey with all of the fixings for just the five of us.  I put out the good china, crystal, and candles in our formal dining room for the boys.  They thought it was fun to be eating another fancy turkey dinner!  I was surprised at how easy it really was, and it was super yummy!  Good news...I won't have to cook a bunch this week! Lots of yummy leftovers to make sandwiches, turkey dumplings, turkey noodle soup and turkey tetrazini!

Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous! Love the embossing and the doily. I bet the boys had fun eating a fancy dinner. I always loved using the fine china as a kid. :)
