Grateful Thankful Blessed

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Yes, I truly am grateful thankful and blessed. I know it’s been an extra tough year for lots of us, more for some than others. Coming from a large family, six of us siblings, we are very blessed to still have both of our parents here with us.

Mom’s birthday is tomorrow and she will be 87. I created a lovely card for her here. Hope she loves it as much as I enjoyed creating it for her. Dad is following closely behind, with his 90th birthday in January. Keeping them safe was our #1 priority this year. That was a tough order. Dad loves people and everyone in our parish knows him. Hopefully, that vaccine will be out very soon and we can all resume life.

I hope you take a few moments today to reflect on the good; what you are thankful and grateful for and how you are blessed. Even if you don’t celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, we can all use a little thanks giving.

Happy Mardi Gras from New Orleans

Happy Mardi Gras from New Orleans

It’s  Fat Tuesday, February 25th, so that must mean it’s Happy Mardi Gras in New Orleans! Have you ever been to the Mardi Gras? It’s an all day event. Who am I kidding? It’s been going on for a couple of weeks.

A few years ago my WOW NOLA Club group asked me to create one of my very popular designs. A sampler to celebrate our Mardi Gras holiday.  Since Stampin’ Up! didn’t have a Mardi Gras set, I needed to improvise. But, we did have some fabulous papers, punches, cardstock and dies that I could adapt.

As you can see Mardi Gras has regal colors of purple, green and gold.  If you are interested in creating a Mardi Gras themed project, our Crushed Curry, Gorgeous Grape and Mossy Meadow are the perfect color combination.

One thing you’ll hear along the parade route is “throw me somethin’ mister”. So in that vain, let’s have some fun. I’ll be “throwing” a lucky winner a little somethin’. Let’s play a little game.
