Happy Thanksgiving Card

Hi Everyone!! I'm sorry I've been MIA for the past week! I've been busy preparing kits for my Stampin Club and getting them mailed out so I had to take a creative break. Well, I'm back!! I'm still working on Thanksgiving and holiday cards.

I bought a package of K&Co Fall die cuts and I'm just trying to use them up or at least reduce them. To help in the process, I made a card using the cornucopia die cut. Nothing much else to the card.

I'm thinking starting the beginning of the new year that I'm going to reduce my blogging time. I spend more time blogging than I do creating! LOL! There's so many things I want to do and create but time seem to be so limited. I try to squeeze as much of my "free" time to craft but for some reason, this time seem to be getting shorter and shorter.
I also want to concentrate on losing weight. Sitting down blogging and crafting well, is very sedentary and I think contributes to my inability to lose weight. I want to lose at least 20 pounds. Arggh!! I've been trying to lose this 20 pounds for years and can't seem to do it.
Anyway, back to my card. . .the picture to the right is a double ribbon bow. I just took two ribbons and created the bow together like one big bow.

This brad is from the Target $1 bin. I think it's such a cute brad and perfect for this Thanksgiving card. It's amazing what you can find in the $1 bins. You just gotta dig through them.
Anyway, I'll work on another holiday card. Maybe Halloween. . .
Hope y'all have a fabulous day!!
