Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all celebrated exactly how you wanted to! I spent mine pre-cooking a huge turkey dinner for my husband's family who came over on January 1 for our inaugural "Feast on the First"! And that wasn't the only first...this was the very first turkey dinner I have ever made. I'm 41 years old, and yes, it's taken me this long!! I wouldn't exactly say it turned out perfectly. I WAY overcooked the turkey, and didn't get rave reviews on my potatoes (although personally I thought they were delicious, but the "traditionalists" didn't love that I added some balsamic vinegar and caramelized red onion to them - they wanted plain (and boring!!), but overall I was pretty happy with the results :)
Of course, between the shopping, the prep and the dinner itself, it was a three day event. And my only regret...it cut into my valuable card making time! Ha ha! So I had to make up for lost time yesterday. Came up with two cards:
This one didn't come together as easily as I'd hoped - there was a lot of try this / try that! It's another mish mash of a lot of different products...I am really enjoying all of my new purchases :) There's some Lawn Fawn in there, some Janes Doodles, HA and some PS.
And Card #2:
This one was inspired by a card I saw Julie Ebersole done quite some time ago. It actually inspired the card I made for her while her Mom was going through her cancer treatment (I didn't post it because I took the photo with my camera that is on the blink - I still can not download the photos from it!). In her most recent video, she accented her card with the latest trend of bunching up a "nest" of twine under her main image. So I thought I would re-create the card I made for her, and add the nest to this version. The flower is an old Stampin Up image coloured with Copics, and the Thinking of You is from WPlus9.
Thank you so much for stopping by to see me today!
