Wouldn't it be great if we could just wrap up Peace on Earth and hand it out for Christmas? I tried to do just that using the PPA sketch, Deck the Halls DSP and the sentiment from Peaceful Season. Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving and a peaceful holiday season...................

Nance Leedy at The Paper Players provided the perfect sketch for a thank you card that I need to send this week. A FedEx box arrived at the library addressed to Nancy (my partner in crime at the Circulation Desk) and me. Inside were two dozen roses along with a thank you note from one of our patrons. Wow - totally unexpected! The resulting good feelings will last long after the flowers are gone. After I send this out to thank the patron, I plan to send a surprise thank you treat to someone who least expects one. Oh what those flowers have started!

Pals Paper Arts challenged us to use ribbon and keep it simple. I used Nursery Suite DSP and skinny Marina Mist ribbon to create a card for my niece's soon-to-arrive baby boy! Yep a boy - unless of course there is a little glitch somewhere. A friend of mine once decided to let his young son announce the gender of an expected sibling at a family gathering Christmas Eve. He asked the ultrasound tech to print the test results on a card and seal it in an envelope. He then taught his son to say boy when he saw a B and girl when he saw a G. The big day came and when the little guy opened the envelope he yelled BOY! Of course there was cheering and celebrating! Thank Heaven before the evening was over Mom thought to pick the card up off the floor where the little boy had dropped it in his excitement. The ultrasound tech had printed on the card - Baby girl! Maybe I will make a pink version of this card..........just in case............

In my house RAIN is a 4-letter word - we worship the Snow Gods. The Paper Players had a snowman theme this week so I used the snowman from Tags til Christmas to let the Snow Gods know we await the flakes. My son cycles daily to get in shape for ski season. My husband has his skis and boots ready by the back door. My daughter decorates her house with snowflakes. I too pray to the Snow Gods. I hope they tire themselves out by mid-January and snooze the week I fly to Nashville for Leadership! I can't believe it - I am going to Nashville :-)

Inspired by the beautiful table linens, I reached for Lap of Luxury DSP and embossed the silverware from Compliments to the Chef. A bit of bling, some pink ribbon and my invite was complete. So if this fabulous photo at Pals Paper Arts inspires you to create an amazing dessert table please send me a card like this!
