There will be food right?

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday 'cause it's filled with food. This year I'm going to spend time with my eldest dd and familly in CA. She's had a rough year, but wants to entertain us anyhow. I am relishing the idea of being pampered a bit, as it's usually moi who puts on the entire shebang at my home. I know there are a few favorite dishes she'll ask me to make. I'm glad of that, 'cause I don't know what all I might get into if I had nothing to do.

So, I've kinda moved on to making Christmas cards and not many Thanksgiving cards were made. I have plenty of stamps, but the stores started decorating for Christmas so darn fast, that I seemed to lose that particular holiday card mojo. Seems to get earlier each year. Oh well, I shall make up for it when it comes to cooking and baking.

So legionnaires, here's one of the few. I used the SU top note die and a pumpkin stamp I've had forever colored with Copics. The sentiment is from Stampabilities. I used a CB folder for the BG and I brushed a brown stamp pad across to highlight. A button, a bow and some hemp finished it off.
I have one or two more T-Day/Fall cards to post and then it will be all about Christmas.
Yeah for the weekend.
Hugs & Blessings,

Beautiful. Enjoy your time with your family for Thanksgiving. My sister is hosting this year but I have to prepare the turkey and dressing.

It's nice to be cooked for huh? I host it every year because there are so few of us and I have the largest house. But I don't mind, I love to cook. Your Thanksgiving card is gorgeous! I love the embossed background and your coloring on your pumpkin is beautiful! Great job! Best, Curt
