I went to the market today to pick up my turkey. I get such a big one that it needs several days to thaw. Don't know why I didn't make a list with me so I could get everything I need for my meal.
I was on my way home from my son's home and thought I should get the turkey. I tried to remember off the top of my head what I need for all the dishes I make. But, of course I didn't remember everything so another trip to the market is necessary. That will have to be done early in the week because traffic will get crazy after Tuesday.
Today, I finally addressed the Thanksgiving cards I will be mailing. They are all local so the cards will get there by Tuesday. A few of them I hand deliver along with a little gift. Now it's onto my Christmas cards. I am so far behind on those so some serious mass producing is in order.
Now onto my card for today. This is another I made for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges on Splitcoaststampers. Ceal was our hostess for this 30th challenge and she wants us to make a card of encouragement letting them know it's going to be okay.
I used the teacup stack die from Poppy Stamps and backed the cups with pink pirouette, rose red, mint macaron card stocks from Stampin'-Up.
The sending word is a die from Simon Says Stamp, and I cut it in rose red card stock. My sentiment is from the happy thoughts stamp set- an exclusive set from the Paper Pumpkin Kit June 2015.
The background paper is from the Stampin'-Up - "pretty petals" collection. And I used the layout from the week 5 Viva la Verve sketch.
And with that, my post for today is coming to an end. So until next time.......God bless.
