A Peaceful Tree...

We had a wonderful (early) Thanksgiving dinner last night with friends and family...so much fun that I spent the day preparing for our guests as well as preparing the meal. I always forget how much time it takes to get organized for a big dinner. I should know because we almost always have friends or family over at our place every year.

Here are some fun lil' memories from today...sorry no turkey pics...totally forgot!

Some laughing pumpkins...



My MIL makes the BEST pies!



Cranberry juice, orange juice and sprite punch with cranberries and ice cubes....mmmm



And now the long awaited card I promised for yesterday *lol*



recipe
paper: Holly Collection Stocking DP and Holly Collection Ornament DP (Crate Paper), Whisper White
ink: Jet Black StazOn
stamp set(s): Believe (Papertrey Ink)
accessories: Copic Ciao Markers, Corner Rounder (SU!), Misc Ribbon


I will be away for a few days so you won't see a new card posted until Friday BUT please check back because I have some LOOT I would like to share with you. Yes...it's blog candy time again...celebrating 130000. Seems like it was only yesterday I was celebrating 100000.

Because I love to stamp and you do too!
Alli
