Happy Thanksgiving!!

I started the day today going over all of my recipes for the big Thanksgiving day feast. It seemed like I had so many different cookbooks, magazines, torn out pages, etc. and I just wanted to simplify. So...I decided to copy each recipe and then just put away all the books & magazines and just have the copy to refer to. I hope this helps me get rid of some of the clutter and be a little more organized!  Yummm....I'm already hungry for all those taste tantalizing flavors that only Thanksgiving dinner brings!

My card for today is a Whipper Snapper Designs image: Megan. She's such a cutie! I colored her with Copics and did some shading to her skirt and around the image with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Her shirt was paper pieced then I added some Star Dust Stickles (gotta add some bling!) and Crystal Effects to her glasses.  The sentiment is an old one from a Hero Arts set that I use a lot.  The scallop punch used is from SU! and I added the black inside the scallop edge to make it stand out a little more.  Love, love, love this paper!!  It's from My Mind's Eye and it's from the "So Sophia" collection. A little stitching, a couple of buttons and this card is good to go!

I know this is a short post, but I need to get back to my Thanksgiving preparations so I hope you'll forgive me!  Cleaning is next on my list, then checking to see that I have all the ingredients needed for dinner.  I'm ready for a busy, productive day!

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!  Don't forget to give thanks for all the blessings in your life.
