Grateful Greetings

Thanksgiving will be here in two weeks. Can you believe it? I am so grateful for my promotion at work. It really has been life changing.

I try to make Thanksgiving cards and treats for my family every year. I've been paper crafting for so long, I think they expect it now. No pressure, right? I decided to embellish these mini pails I picked up at our local craft store recently. Aren't they cute? Of course they must accompany a matching card and the pail will be filled with something sweet. Hopefully my friends and family will enjoy them at the Thanksgiving table this year. Did I mention I'm cooking too? I bought the turkey this week. Now the planning. Argh! I'd rather be paper crafting.

Enjoy your day & happy stamping!
