*Happy Thanksgiving*

Today is Thanksgiving here in Calgary, but in my house it's the day after the big feast. My Mom always had Thanksgiving Dinner on the Sunday and I've adopted that tradition as well. I don't want to be doing all the work of such a big dinner on a holiday Monday! Instead we do all the work on the Sunday and sit back and relax on the Monday.

And my favourite part of the whole meal comes tonight for supper.... a toasted turkey sandwich. Total YUM!

I am still making non-winter cards. Perhaps the next time I hit my stamp space I'll do some winter stuff. It truly is my most favourite reason to stamp. I don't know why I keep putting it off! Maybe I'm still hoping for some nice hot summer-like weather.

This card was quick and easy to throw together. Somewhere I saw mention of a challenge that said you could only use patterned paper and a stamped sentiment.

I created the scallops on the patterned paper (and a piece of white cardstock for contrast) by using my small corner rounder punch without the plastic guide. I actually broke the plastic guide a few months ago so I ended up buying another small corner rounder... now I have one for rounding corners and one for making scallops!

Items Used: (all items Stampin' Up! unless noted)
*Cardstock: Whisper White, Certainly Celery
*Patterned Paper: in Rose Red
*Images: Sweet Shapes
*Ink: Rose Red
*Tools: Marvy Mega and Giga Scallop Oval Punches; small corner rounder

Happy Thanksgiving Nancy!

We always do that too! Cook Sundays and then eat the leftovers on Monday. Makes for a much more relaxing day!

Great card with DP! You saw that on SCS probably on Friday. I think that is when I did that challenge.
Your card is awesome!

The weather has been great for us and I know what you mean...some more nice hot weather would be GREAT too!
