Simon Says Thanksgiving & Thanks!

Happy Wednesday! Can you believe the week is already half over? Wednesdays always sneak up on me! : )

I'm excited to announce that the Simon Says Stamp Challenge theme for this week before Thanksgiving is perfect - Thanksgiving & Thanks. Besides the mass quantities of my favorite foods (stuffing - I am what I eat in this case!, mashed potatoes, turkey...yum!), I am always thankful for the laze around the house and enjoy your family part of the day. This year, we'll be going to my sister's place in Chicago to celebrate her first hosting of Thanksgiving. : )

Here are some cards by our talented Simon Say Stamp Challenge Design Team featuring the Thanksgiving & Thanks theme!

America used a Hero Arts Stamp set called So Thankful! Cute little pilgrims, aren't they?

  43. Gifts cash on the priceless emotions and terms that make the relation, by adding the true values to it. When it’s about relishing the sweet terms spent together, gifts are magnificent in dealing with that. That’s the area where HampersNationWide.com has specialized, and www.hampersnationwide.com/France/Send_Gifts_to_France.asp is the link that hosts them all.
