Thanksgiving has arrived!  This is one of my favorite holidays.  I love getting up early to cook for my family and friends- using recipes taught to me by my grandmother as well as a few new favorites I’ve learned along the way.  This year, Thanksgiving was ushered in with a large winter storm bringing snow, wind, and freezing tempeartures to Washington.  In fact we are getting another round of snow as I type this!  Looks more like Christmas.  The weather and icy roads will be keeping family away this year so it will just be Tim, the kids and I for Thanksgiving.  Six people to share a 21 pound turkey!  I think we will have lots of leftovers.

I wanted to share our Family Thanksgiving card with all of you.  I loved the layout of one of the cards from the Portland Regionals that I decided to use it for our Thanksgiving cards.  Please refere to the original post for details on dimensions, as this card has an off center fold.  I changed the front just a bit, using different images from Day of Gratitude and adding some Autumn Spice Designer Series paper to both the inside and outside of the card.  I also used Teeny Tiny Wishes and God’s Blessings for the sentiments.  I also used Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla in exchange for the River Rock and Whisper White used in the original card.  I used the Crumb Cake because I was out of River Rock and I used Very Vanilla because I wanted less contrast.

Don’t forget about the great Online Spectacular going on now.  HUGE discounts on some of your favorite things, including 50% off My Digital Studio!  What a great savings.  The sale ends November 30 so don’t miss out.

I hope to get a little paper crafting done while that huge turkey is in the oven so I may have some more posts later in the day.  Either way, may you and yours have a Blessed Thanksgiving and a beautiful start to your Holiday Season.  I’ll certainly be counting my blessings today!

God Bless and Happy Stampin’!  I’m off to make some stuffing!
