Post Thanksgiving Musings

Yesterday was such a wonderful day! I love my family, both immediate and extended. For many years now, my family and I have travelled across the beautiful valley where we live to have Thanksgiving dinner with my sister and her family. Some years my brothers and their families join us, some years they are not able to make it. We miss them, and love them, and wish they were with us, but we know that we all have separate lives and different needs. This year it was just my sister and her family and me and my family. It was still wonderful! 

I am thankful for my family, the beautiful country that we live in and this amazing Earth that we call home. I am especially thankful for a loving Father in Heaven that watches over us, and his son, Jesus Christ, that gave His life for us so that we can return to live with Him one day. 

I am also thankful for those of you who read my little blog, and I hope that you all have a wonderful day!

A Generic Wedding Card

A little while back I had a friend call me and ask if I had any wedding cards on hand. I don't usually have any wedding cards in my "stash" because I usually like to make a wedding card specifically for the happy couple. I usually know at least one of them so I can make something extra special for their wedding. In this case, I did not know either the bride or the groom, so I just had to make something "generic". Now, don't get me wrong. A generic card can still be pretty and special. I hope you like my "generic" wedding card.

Supplies (all come from Stampin' Up!):
Stamp sets: Label Love, Chalk Talk, Regarding Dahlias
Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Very Vanilla
Ink Colors: Elegant Eggplant
Punch: Artisan Label
Accessories: Champagne Glimmer Paper, Very Vanilla 5/8" Satin Ribbon, Sizzix Big Shot, Chalk Talk Framelits, Beautifully Baroque Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots

I hope you like my card. Not bad for generic, huh. If you would like to order any of these supplies, leave me a comment at the end of this post. I would be glad to help you.
