I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and you got to spend time with your loved ones. We went to my family's this year, we got back Friday night. It was almost a uneventful Thanksgiving for us...lol We was getting the dressing out and thought my cousin had it, well I was wrong. Yep dressing pan fell and dressing almost every where. The good part was it did not flip over only part fell out so we saved it or lest some of it...lol There dog got some dressing this year. Whats thanksgiving without one mishap. Also to while we where visiting Gene went hunting, my cousin's where we stay has land. So when we stay he just gets out of bed and walks to his blind. He had not got a deer in two years but he broke that record on Thanksgiving. He came back with a 8 point and not only did he get one but my brother got two. I walk outside and I see three deer laying out I could not believe it. So part of that day was spent driving to take them in to get processed. I know some people cant stand the idea of killing deer and I feel the same way. But if I don't agree with it that is my view I cant look down on those that like it and Gene is one that does like to hunt. I am happy he got to get something cause that is his hobby, but at the same time feel bad for that deer. He will also have it mounted so I get to look at it all the time. Payback for all the scrapbook stuff he has to look at...lol
Oh speaking of scrapbook stuff hope you all got to do some craft shopping. We hit a few walmarts on the way home I found one 20.00 lite cart I was wanting, the Christmas one cant think of the name. They had lots of the cricuts expressions left, and they were so pretty. Almost wish I had waited on mine...lol Such a good deal. But anyway that was all the shopping I did we are on a major budget so craft funds are limited. But hope you all got what you was after on black Friday. Hope the posting about sales helped.

A thank you card I made using my cricut summer in Paris cart. I loved this cart so much when I seen it. I love the Paris look, I really like vintage or distressed items. Anyway back to the card...lol I made this card for Gene's grandmother who was down last month and she brought some items for our new house. So this was for her, she loves shoes so thought I would use the pretty shoe on Paris cart. I used distressing inks on it as well and Glimmer mist. Thanks for looking.

Here is the cards made for operation write home. I wanted something simple so that they would not get damaged during shipping and they have certain things you can't use. I did have fun making these, it was a challenge to make something without adding a lot. I tend to over do it sometimes...lol So thought I would share the finale product, thinking I might make for myself for Christmas cards...lol
