Happy Birthday Daughter

Hi friends.  Are you busy getting ready for Thanksgiving?  I think I have been to the Grocery store everyday for a week for something I have forgotten!  Our daughter and son-in-law and two grands are coming for dinner.  I have had up to 16 people in the past when my parents used to come before they passed and we always celebrated both Canadian Thanksgiving and American Thanksgiving here with my Godparents who lived in Toronto.  I miss that big family dinner and all the activity in the house, but I am looking forward to cooking this year.

Monday was our daughters birthday and today was my husband's birthday.  I am sharing the card I made for my daughter here.

Card Recipe

White 5x7 card stock base
5x7 embossing folder
Die cut is Cuttlebug, Anna Griffin
from pink card stock, used chalks to hi-lite  flowers
Sentiment was created with a Kitchen Sink set that I
love, all of the words are separate and it's a clear set, so
it is easy to create with.
Spellbinders die for sentiment

We are going to get some snow for Thanksgiving.  My sister and her family are
traveling out of town to one of her daughter's house, so maybe I will have more
than I think for dinner if the weather turns bad!!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Until later............

Your daughter will enjoy this card, Sue, it is so pretty, and the white texture in the background looks especially elegant. I miss the larger group as well during thanksgiving, but somehow, the spirit of gratitude is all the dearer these days. hugs, de
