Hello Friends! I hope everyone is doing good; and staying safe in these crazy times. It sure helps to craft and enjoy the simple things in life. We have to count our blessings each day and be grateful for what we do have and what we can experience in this current life.
My husband was a sweetheart on Sunday and drove to one of my favorite restaurants to buy me one of my favorite meals to bring home to me. When my mother was alive, she made turkey, cornbread dressing and mashed potatoes with turkey gravy every year for Thanksgiving; so when I found this place that cooked like my mother; I fell in love with this meal. They actually serve it daily, all year long.
Can you imagine being able to have your mother's turkey meal anytime you want it? It has been 3 months or more since I had it; so I was really excited. I prefer eating it there; but the next best thing was eating it at home. I get 3 meals out of that one meal. It always makes me smile and feel close to my mother; when I eat it. It is a joyful experience.
I am super excited today; because I received my new CTMH Blue Skies special paper and cardstock over the weekend; and I was finally able to play with it. I have been sharing my new favorite CTMH Sweet Hummingbird Stamp & Thin Cuts - Z3725; but now I have created using this fabulous paper and patterned shiny cardstock to go with my Hummingbird set. I created this for a friend of mine, Sue. She loves Hummingbirds and I haven't made her a card in a while.
