Thanksgiving...

Hello friends! I don't usually stop here on Saturdays, since weekends are filled with church and family stuff, but today I'm staying home with two sick kids. While it's pretty nice and quiet here, as both of them are taking a nap, I thought I'll pop in to say hi!

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving day. We certainly did! There's so much to be thankful for in our lives that we need to have Thanksgiving at least once every month! Just without the black Friday to follow it.

I have another card to share today. Again, it was made using lovely papers by Les Papiers de Pandore.


One of my favorite techniques lately is cutting a shape with Silhouette and covering it with glitter...


I added a lot of red pearls here to emphasise the star design on the paper.

I guess before I go, I have to share a couple of photos from Thanksgiving day... My girls helped me make a cake, apple filled roll and two salads to take along...



This is our happy family. It's a rare occasion when we are all together on one photo! (Still, two people are missing here, but it's as good as it gets:) Whenever all of us are together, we forget to take a photo:)


And this is what we had on our table. How can you not be thankful? Or how can you not like Thanksgiving? It's one of my favorite days of the year!


This is one of those days when you count your blessings, not calories! Right? Hope you had a great Thanksgiving celebration too! Oh, Irochka, thank you for letting us gather at your house this year! If there was a mess after we left, it wasn't us :))

Thanks for stopping by here! I like to hear anything and everything!

Until next time!

  1. I love how you added a "button" on that bow, very pretty! The card itself is just very pretty:)
    Food looks ammaaazing, I tell ya! You are all so talented at making it look so beautiful! We had a wonderful time at Olga K. house. She is also so talented with her baking masterpieces that, oh my goodness, were out of this world. She made something so delicious that no cake was ever so delicious to me-I had to get the recipe from her!
    And I definitely agree that Thanksgiving is all about counting your blessings-that's the whole reason for the celebration!

  2. Thank you! Well, now I want to know that "out of this world" recipe too! Was it a desert? I'm searching for a reason to invite AnnaO, so that she can make it and share with us :))

  6. Oh, I totally agree! It's one of my favorite days of the year, too. LOVE the good food and family togetherness without the stress of the gifting killing your pocketbook ;). And those desserts... Girl, you outdid yourself. Yum!

    I also adore your beautiful creation, especially those dangling stars and pearls! So sweet!
