Happy ToFurky Day


Back again!  It's thursday and boy am I glad to see it!  That means 1 more day of work and hello weekend!!!  Next week is a short week for me too, yay!  2 days of work then I am off for 5 days. I can not wait!!!  I need a break. 

Today I want to share a Turkey Day card with you. I love this little turkey, he is a digi stamp from Stretch n' Bubbles.  He is a adorable and the sign just makes it.  I am actually changing it up a little more when I send it out and crossing off the "Cow" too....I'm sending this to a super sweet vegetarian ( hubby's aunt) and I hope she will get a kick out of it.  We are going to spend Thanksgiving Day with them this year in Sarasota, FL.  Last year we did too and my first thought was.... what are we going to eat???  Now she isn't just a vegetarian, she is also really big into Animal Rights....so her home is a NO BIRD zone!  Well she didn't make us suffer tooo much! LOL  She won't let the bird be cooked in her oven, so another aunt cooked it in her oven and brought it over.  We made lots of good sides though. I love stuffing but my stuffing has sausage and chicken broth in it. So i searched online for a recipe that I could make that would be totally vegetarian. I found one and score one for me, it was delicious. It was made with vegetable broth, lots of onions and celery, sage, and ARTICHOKES! Yup...artichokes...it was really good.   So I think I shall make that again this year! 

I did have to call the auntie up and reign her in on the desserts though. lol  If anybody knows me, I LOVE desserts and usually make oodles of desserts. So if I am saying there was too many desserts, there were way to many! LOL  She bought like 3 dozen cannolis....I made a pumpkin pie, somebody brought a pumpkin pie. I made a pumpkin cake. We had Cherry pie and I think there was something Chocolate there. Not to mention all the candy and cookies that were laying around the house. Omg..it was like a dessert explosion.  Did I mention there were only 12 of us?? 

So enough about that. I can't wait to go see them. They are THE BEST....not even lieing. I totally married into the best aunt and uncle EVER. Love those people!


I love these papers. They are from We R Memories.  The leaves were made with a border punch, I just cut them out into individual leaves. Then I took a stylus and drew lines on it. Flipped it over and sanded it gently to bring out the "Veins" of the leaves. I used Helmars Scrap Dots to pop them. Have you used those yet? They are awesome. Takes a little getting use to because u do have to let them dry a bit, or do it last so that you don't press down. But they are great for adding dimensions.  Pop dots and foam dots are nice but they are all the same height. With the scrap dots you can pile it on to make the dimension different heights. Love it.

Thats all for today!
