Happy Thanksgiving!



 

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends!  I hope you are having a very blessed day filled with lots of love!  We're spending the day today with the Mangan side of the family.  It is the first time in 20 years of marriage that we are hosting Thanksgiving.  Thankfully everyone is bringing a dish to share.  Most importantly though we get to be together.  Since we won't be spending the day with my side of the family, we'll be having everyone over again on Saturday.  We'll be making chili on Saturday instead of turkey...a bit easier :)
In honor of Thanksgiving, Collin is sharing his "snowman" turkey today! He was very proud to take pictures of it for my blog. And I have a Thanksgiving card for all you inspired by this week's ColourQ challenge.  I used my Verve New Mercies set and had fun using the fall colors to ink up the leaves.  This is very similar to my card here.  Don't you love when a set is so versatile?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  So much to be thankful for especially my family and dear blog friends!  Take care!  I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
