Taking a few moments on this Thanksgiving to wish everyone a fabulous holiday with family and friends!

I’ve been MIA for several weeks as we have recently relocated to Texas! My husband was fortunate enough to retire in early October. We spent September getting our house packed and ready for the move. After more than 20+ years as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, my Craft Room needed a huge purge before packing everything up. What an undertaking that task was! We grossly under estimated the amount of “stuff” to load on the moving truck and had to rent a small enclosed trailer for the last household remnants. My hubby had the privilege of driving the moving truck, towing the trailer across county while I followed in the SUV. It was about 24 hours of driving, basically three days. Once we arrived at our new home in Texas, even more work was waiting for us. After unloading the moving truck (with some hired help), there was carpet to remove and painting to be done. We made great progress each day with the unpacking and thank goodness are are settled in as I type this post. Without a doubt, moving is EXHAUSTING!

I am hoping to be back on track with posting to my blog more regularly. I’m sharing a card that both of my clubs recently completed.

Words of Cheer holiday card
Holiday card featuring Words of Cheer bundle

This card features the Words of Cheer bundle, the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder and the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I looped some gold cord behind the focal image and used Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots in Gold for the flower centers. Stampin’ Blends were used to color the lovely floral spray. Simple card, but very stunning in person!
