I’ll be spending time with family over the next few days, and then while my girls are here we’ll be decorating for Christmas.  For us, Thanksgiving starts the holidays and they don’t end until after New Years.   Here’s wishing all of you aSmiley from millan.net and if you are traveling over the long weekend – safe journeys!

Animation from millan.netGood morning! I have to admit, that yesterday I hung it all up. I went down to the studio to work on a card and was working on a fabulous image panel. All of a sudden the phone kept ringing, the pups were running in and out, and after about an hour . . . I decided that I was getting no where. So, with no hesitation, I shoved everything to the side and turned off the lights. Which was a good thing, because Mallory rolled into the driveway not 20 minutes later. I spent the rest of the afternoon chatting with her and working on her computer.

Now I knew that I had to make a card for today since I fudged yesterday. After a dinner of pizza delivery, I headed back down to the studio once again. This time there were no interruptions and by golly . . . I finished a card!

Today’s Rubbernecker Blogger Challenge is hosted by Broni. She has challenged all of us to make a card about food. I think she put it . . . since we are going to be thinking about food chowing down on a big feast, why not? It may not have been that exactly, but the idea is close. We hope you find time this holiday weekend to play along with us. Make sure you check the Rubbernecker Stamps Blog for her exact challenge and don’t hold me to anything written here.

I thought about making a card with a chicken looking for Tommy Turkey in the barnyard (and I still may), but I decided to put the focus on the main course instead.

I seem to be having problems with layouts these days, and decided to go with one of my favorites to use. I love to stitch on my cards, and this layout just screams for it. The turkey was colored with Copic Markers and then cut with Circle Nestabilities. I knew that I was going to use my favorite brown ribbon and all of a sudden it hit me to tie the ribbon with a button. I went digging through my aunt’s button collection, and found one that looked better than all the rest I had. Once I had the ribbon tied through the button holes, it wanted to hang down a little, so I added some Ranger Glossy Accents to the back of the button to make it hold in place. Worked like a charm!

Have a great day! Smiley from millan.net
