I hope that everyone has survived the Cyber Monday shopping!!! I made it back at 5 am this morning after driving through the night to get home from my son's which was over 1000 miles away. I really wanted to sleep in my own bed and snuggle with my cats which helps me to sleep better. Also, I wanted to get through Chicago when there wasn't a lot of traffic (and deal with all those tolls!!!).
I was bad that I forgot to set up a post that should have been done last Friday for Bugaboo for the Friday Freebie of this Cocoa image. I made mine into a gift card that I could put a Starbucks card into.
I am visiting my son so I traveled from Wisconsin 16 hours to South Carolina. So I want to wish all my blog friends in the US Happy Thanksgiving and those not in the US I'm still thankful for all the support and friendship that I get here on my site throughout the year. My husband encouraged me to start this site for stress relief and to display my creations back in 2010 and over these years I have met many wonderful people and made lots of connections. With all that has happened in this world, I feel so blessed to have friends in many different parts of this world and walks of life. It is still nice to know that there are places where hugs, kind words and small gifts are appreciated. So if you are having a special meal or just happy to have food today - may it be with people you love.
Hopefully I will have some pictures to share later and will be around to comment on your cards/projects when I have internet access. Happy thanksgiving and thankful blessings to all, Lisa
Today at Bugaboo is a New Release and this adorable image with Three Snowmen is available. Grab it this week when it is on sale for 50% off. I used a sentiment from TLC, Create for this card. I put Sakura jelly glitter pen on the snowflakes and Stickles on the snow.
I will be leaving this morning to start my travels to see my son. This will be over a 1000 mile drive and take me over 16 hours of driving to get there. I'm not sure if I will have internet access to be able to comment on your cards/projects for the next week so if I'm missing you will know why.

Catch the Bug Saturday Challenge is a BINGO and here is a card that I made with a retired giraffe image and a sentiment from TLC, Create. I outlined the string in Sakura jelly glitter pen. Love these colors together.
It would be great if it worked that way just like the commercial of years ago used to say..."Calgon take me away". Here is my card using the Friday Freebie from Bugaboo called Ruby Bubble Trouble. For my card, I added some bling for the earrings and some extra die cut bubbles.
