Happy Wednesday and Happy Thanksgiving to those that are celebrating! My kids are off today thru Friday and we are off to shop for hubby’s birthday present…he celebrates his 45th Birthday on Thanksgiving. Do I have any idea what I’m getting? ummm NO…not really…LOL…except one small thing I already picked out. Last year I combined his birthday and anniv present and got him an iPad…best darn prezzie I ever got him because he uses it everyday. This year…well I’m just befuddled other than some clothes. He doesn’t really have hobbies I can buy for…he has all the golf stuff and he likes RC Airplanes but he has all that and I haven’t a clue what to get for that. Sooooo I’m taking kids to mall to figure SOMETHING out…some divine intervention that will say “oh yeah, that’s what he needs” LOL! Not that we have to get him anything I know…but I want to get him SOMETHING! OY! And then I have to finish laundry, pack and get cats all squared away. Alexa’s BFF comes and takes care of the cats while we are away but I have to everything out for her. And last night I picked up a new cat to foster from the rescue…my other 2 babies got adopted on Sunday…so happy for them but I miss them. So I have a 2 yr old cat named “Winston” that likes to lay in your lap LOL. My 7 animals just look at me like “another one? seriously?” heehee, they are used to it! We are headed to my parents for an early Thanksgiving meal and then hubby and I are headed away thru Sunday for a belated getaway w/o the teens…yippeee! Looking forward to some downtime and just hanging out…where are we going? Well it’s a surprise but its not too far away cuz’ I was in NO mood to travel far right now KWIM?
Anywho I hope you all have a fabulous holiday, spent with those you love most and enjoy that time together Next week I have lots to do…projects, chorus concerts and 12 Christmas trees to start putting up…yup a lot on my ole’ to-do list, nothing new right? LOL!

Today I’m sharing my last fall card with you that I made for the current TouchTwin Challenge HERE! (go enter for a chance to win 12 markers, you can use any markers on your image) The current challenge is a photo inspiration that is “fall inspired” so I had to bring out an oldie-but-goodie…one of my fave Lockhart Stamp Co stamps “Harvest Candle”(25% off). I love, love Lockhart stamps when I need a change from the cute & cuddly stamps KWIM…so many gorgeous images to choose from and super fun to color!
I used Paper Trey Ink cardstock and ribbon (I use their cs 95% of the time cuz’ I love it) and then a sheet of paper from my friend Mindy’s paper pack for Little Darlings “Chocolate Covered Cherry” HERE! I embossed the darker cream cs with this embossing folder and inked the edges. Around my main image I used a Spellbinders flourish die cut out of cream cs and the orange flowery diecut is a Memory Box Die (Catalina Wreath). I cut the wreath into pieces to make it work for me…I cut all my diecuts into pieces, I like to use them in lots of different ways. The sentiment is from PTI as well!
The TouchTwin colors are listed above for you…if you haven’t tried them then what are you waiting for? They are fabulous and in my honest opinion right up there with Copics (in fact I prefer the TouchTwin ink)! I used Diamond Glaze on the hurricane glass over the candle. I used Liquid Pearls in Rouge on the winterberries for more texture.
