They're walking around the bed, On their head, Clippety cloppety...

Happy Thanksgiving, Sistahs! I hope you're enjoying your day. I have to take a second to tell you all how thankful I am for you. Seriously! I find it baffling that some of my greatest friends are ones I've never even seen...I love you all! There are some major changes going on in my life (no, I'm not pregnant, and no, I'm not leaving, and no, it's not THAT kind of change...) and it's nice to have you all there to lean on. HUGS to all of you!!

Ok, so now that the love fest is out of the way, I have something fun to share! Hopefully by now you've heard about the newest stamp company in town, Our Craft Lounge. Owned by some of my dear friends, I'm so excited to support and encourage them in their new venture! So if you haven't, make sure you check out their newest stamps, k?


When I saw the new stamps, I fell head over heels for the Dr. Pea-Nut set. OMG!! His face just cracks me up every time! Totally makes me happy. Check it out:

Isn't he adorable??? One of the things I love about this set is all the accessories that come along with Elfred (no idea what his name is, but I shall call him ELFRED). You can make Get Well cards, Valentine's Day cards, and Thinking of You/Just Because cards...it's all in how you use it.

I knew I wanted to use this sentiment, so I stamped Elfred in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and masked him, then stamped the Peanut bucket and grass around him. Colored him with Copic Markers and Voila! The sketch challenge on SCS was perfect, so I just added a red panel and a strip of felt ribbon and then the sentiment to finish it off. What a perfect card for a friend who has had a rotten day!

Anywho, that's about it for me today...I gotta go finish some laundry. *blech* Hope you have a wonderful Turkey Day!
