How was your Thanksgiving Day? We had a very quiet, yet fun day. I made the traditional turkey and dressing and it was amazing. Can't wait for leftovers.

Tonight - Auction night. It has become a regular fixture in our home. We rarely bid, since we are trying hard to downsize, but it is fun to see what things go for and what is up for sale.

Today is My Birthday!!!

Oh, yeah! My day will definately turn into a week since we are going to celebrate together next Sunday at Seven Feathers Casino Resort with brunch. We will also do a little Ka-Ching too.

It was a wonderful birthday with brunch at a friend's house - totally spur of the moment and just wonderful food and company.

Tomorrow, since we are so full from brunch - I will have a birthday dinner of my choice - PIZZA! Nummmm.

My sister called and we talked for about a half hour and that was special too. So, Happy Birthday to me!

Technically my birthday is all of 6 minutes since I was born at 11:54 pm, that's why I stretch it into a week. LOL

Snowman Treat Card

This has to be one of my all time favorite cards.

Cartridges: Doodlecharms (snowman, carrot nose, arms & shadow snowman), Paper Doll Dress-Up (hat), Joys of the Season (holly)

You can either use the Center Point feature or a 1 3/4" circle punch to cut the hole out for the Stampin' Up Treat Cup.

Punch the gold vellum (Paper Accents) oval with the Stampin' Up scallop oval punch.

Draw in the eyes, mouth and chalk the cheeks.

Fill with white jelly bellys (cupcake flavor) or tiny marshmallows. They sell little bags of these marshmellows at Oriental Trading. Great for Hot Chocolate.
