Simply Pretty!

First I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving (in the US) a bit  early.  We are celebrating this year at my MIL's.  When I first married my husband we went to spend Thanksgiving at his Great Grandma's house.  It was a sweet little log cabin that her husband had built for her many years ago.  The tradition of the family was always to spend 2 weeks at Great Grandma's.  So we all slept in rows on the floor of this tiny house, with one bathroom for all of us.  It was SOOO FUN!  I was new to the family and wanted to contribute something that we always had at my family gatherings.   I decided to make "GREEN JUNK" which is a jello and whipped topping desert.  We were all sitting in the kitchen talking about the new carpet that Great Grandma had just gotten.  I was mixing up my green dessert with the hand mixer.  When I went to take the beaters out they FELL RIGHT ON THE NEW CARPET.  Green jello on Cream colored berber.  YIKES!  This is my life and my luck.  What a way to impress the family.  They have since gotten used to my little blunders.  Great Grandma was one of my favorite people.  We will be thinking of her this Thanksgiving.  I hope you enjoy your family.

Now for the card.  This is soooo simply and a concept I have used before.  I love the colors of this card though.

I used the flourish from a set by Making Memories called Autumn Splendor.  I just inked it up with versamark first and then Enchanted Evening Ink and clear embossed it on Old Olive.  I also sponged the edges to give the card a little depth.  The ribbon at the top is threaded through a tiny slit to make it look like it's hanging.  The sentiment at the bottom is from Peaceful Wishes which is retired.

Hope you have a very BLESSED DAY!  I will be back in a few day from vacation.  See you then
