Thanksgiving Week is here!

Hello Stampers!

I'm sure that for most of us, stamping has taken a back seat to Thanksgiving as we prepare for Thursday's holiday meal.  Even if you're not responsible for the whole feast, you probably have some part to play, even if it's just bringing the rolls or the green bean casserole, or maybe the yams.  

I hope you understand that the posts this week are going to be short and hopefully sweet, as I'm preparing for the big day.  Today's card is by one of my wonderful downline members, Mary Peterson.  Check out this lovely card that is the perfect way to say Happy Thanksgiving...

I received this card as a swap at the big Stampin'Up! OnStage event that I attended on November 14th.  Mary says she "cased" this card from Amy Koenders, a Stampin'Up! demonstrator in Alpharetta, Georgia (

That beautiful fall tree image is from the Sheltering Tree stamp set on page 89 of the annual catalog, as is the "thankful for you" sentiment, which was stamped on vellum.  The colors Mary used are Chocolate Chip for the tree, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry for the leaves, and Old Olive for the grass beneath the tree.  The small leaves fluttering over the background panel are from the Among the Branches stamp set on page 39 of the Holiday catalog, also stamped in Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, and Old Olive.  

You still have a couple of days to stamp a beautiful card like this to give to the special people in your life on Thanksgiving Day. 

If you haven't shopped the fabulous Online Extravaganza Sale that started last night at midnight, be sure to check it out today.  There are some great bargains and quantities are limited, so if there's something you'd really like to get, shop early.

I'll meet you back here on Wednesday if you're not too busy and show you another classic card.  I'm off to chop celery and onions for my stuffing (or do you call it dressing?).
