One More - FMS111



I am delighted to be hosting this week at Freshly Made Sketches! I turned the sketch into a Christmas card - ahhh one more to add to my stash! And I have another "one more" to tell you about.  But first let me say that the FMS team is a wonderful group of talented gals - so much fun to work with!  I have been fortunate enough to meet Rita and Cindy in person at Stampin' Up! events and this weekend I got to meet one more person on our team - Jen Mitchell!  We live about 4 hours apart so we met in the middle for lunch at The Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.  We had a great time - no actual stamping, but lots of stamping talk!

As I was driving home my son called and asked for a ride home since his car was in the garage.  When I picked him up he said "I ordered a pizza for us for dinner." Then my daughter called and said "We are headed to your house - we're ordering pizza so you don't have to cook." As we pulled up to the house a pizza delivery guy was just leaving and there stood my husband in the kitchen with one more pizza. "Oh," he said, "I ordered pizza so you wouldn't have to worry about dinner!"  Who was worried?  Obviously not me since I was the only one who didn't order a pizza!


                     Hope you play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!  Enjoy!

LOL....your family obviously LOVES pizza! And I LOVE your card! And I LOVE The Red Lion Inn...one of my first REAL vacations was spent there! Fond memories! I remember that one round window on the second floor! Such a cool place! This card really stands out....I am going to have to rethink that Santa, cuz he's awful cute!

Pizza saves the day! And you know what's extra weird? I picked up a pizza myself on my way home. That's some karma!

Oh, that Santa is adorable. the White is a star element on this card, too! So, did all the pizza come from the same place? Yum!
