Our Uninvited Guest

Do you see the red cardinal in the picture? I was helping my daughter and her boyfriend move yesterday and we had the front door propped open and in flew this beautiful red cardinal. He originally perched himself on the mirror wall and then tried to get through each "mirror". When that didn't work he flew over to grandma and grandpa's picture and sat up there a minute. He looked so "devine" up there that I decided to get a picture but by the time I grabbed the camera and got it turned on, he had flown down into the craft room. I wanted to get a close up shot of him but of course that was out of the question. By the time I got the camera on him, everybody else was watching him too and it must have scared the shit out of him because he took a dump on the back door and a file folder got it too. He started flying vigorously back and forth across the back of the house and finally flew back out the front door. Nothing like a little excitement on moving day, lol!!!

Thanksgiving Card

Good Morning Peeps, here's a card that I made for a little craft fair that I attended a couple of weeks ago. It turned out so cute. The little wheat stalk was made from raffia. I gave one to my sister and she liked it so well, we re-created it with some of her card making supplies and she used it as her presentation at a card club she belongs to. I was over there helping her with her cancer surgery she had done on her nose. Man, they really roughed her up. Besides having this "flap" on her forhead, she also has two black eyes. They have started to turn yellow now but you can sure tell the trauma her face has been through. They will do the remainder of the plastic surgery in a couple of weeks and they say that within a year, you won't even be able to tell what they did. She has really been a trooper though. She even ventured out to card club last Friday. Her friend Tiffany came and got her (she can't drive yet) and brought her back home. We have all told her that we don't care what she looks like, WE ALL STILL LOVE HER AND ALWAYS WILL!!!!! I will be going back over for Thanksgiving next Tuesday. We are going to put out a traditional Thanksgiving feast. I have the Rhoades frozen bread rolls already. Those are hard to find down here. Picked up some canned red tart cherries for the cherry pie. Not sure if I will bake the pie before I go or just do it over there. Still need to get the yams. Hope ya'll have a very nice Thanksgiving!!

Thanksgiving Die Cuts

Hello Everyone, nice of you to drop by. Have been busy building the remainder of the Thanksgiving Die Cuts. They make such a nice Thanksgiving page layout. Can hardly wait for the day to arrive. Besides that yummy turkey, love, love that turkey breast meat and all the goodies that go along with it, all the pictures we can take and do our 2010 Thanksgiving scrapbooking layouts with. I think I even have a couple of "thanksgiving of old" layouts to still do for my daughters album. These will be perfect for them as well. Anyway, here's a look at each one, there is the cornucopia, the pilgrim's hat, the turkey and the words "giving thanks". In the drop down menu you can choose which one you'd like or you can get the whole package. The shipping of $1.25 applies to each single order. Shipping for the full set will be $3.00.

Cornucopia Die Cut

Get yours before it's too late. Check out this "Cornucopia" die cut I made. It is so perfect for those upcoming Thanksgiving page layouts. They are brown, orange and yellow but with some beautiful embellishments thrown in to accent the fruits and 'plenty'. The photo doesn't even do it justice. I tried it on a couple different papers here that I had in my stash just to show you the versatility but I'll have to see what delicious Thanksgiving scrapbooking paper I can find to go with it. It measures approx. 11"x 5" at it's highest points so it fits perfectly on a 12x12 layout. I can hardly wait for the big day now and will take lots of pictures just so I can use this beautiful die cut on my pages. You can order one for your Thanksgiving pages right from here for just $9 plus $1 shipping. Just click the "buy now" button below and I will send one out to you the same day your payment hits.

MoJo Monday #163

Good Morning Peeps. Just a little MoJo Monday going on this morning. I made this card for a dear friend of mine who is having a birthday tomorrow. The card is already on it's way to Wyoming. It is made from the Emma 6x6 paper pack from Making Memories. I just loved these colors but could never find the actual 12x12 paper pack that goes with it to make scrapbook pages with so I have used it for cards. Used my Tim Holtz rosette die for the flower, just love that thing, then added a brad and a purple rhinestone on top. Hope she likes it. Have a great day!!! Hugs, ~Jody
