Gobble Gobble
Sweet Sketch 69
Sponsor: Sweet 'n Sassy

Gobble Gobble!!! I know it is only September but Thanksgiving is just around the corner for us here in the US! I will tell you straight is a big work day for Moms!!!! Now I have four children....all grown but not all married. I am looking forward to the day when they will all contribute to the fixins'. Just cooking the turkey would be the easy part for me. But I usually start two or three days ahead by making rolls and pies, cranberry sauce and salads. Well, I have a new double oven this why am I complaining... I have tried to buy rolls and pies but I get all kinds of complaints from my children because the rolls and pies are a tradition...and when you start a tradition you can't change it.... The problem was that... I didn't know it had become a tradition!

This little turkey is called Templeton Turkey. He is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. They are our sponsor this week at SSW! Yes, their images are sweet 'n sassy! So be sure to look around their site. Sweet 'n Sassy is offering a very Sweet 'n Sassy prize of a

This is a rub on also from Heidi Grace. It was perfect for my card! Thanks, Heidi. I had the opportunity of meeting Heidi last year. Didn't know she lived in my area. So when I found out she had a little shop, I stopped by and purchased some fun items. Twice I have bumped into her at JoAnn's. She has since closed her little store due to the arrival of her third baby! Not sure if her little one has arrived yet but I do wish her well. What a sweet and talented lady and Mom!
