FTTC147 Joy to You and Yours...

Happy Tuesday Flourishes Fans!!!

It's time for a new Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC147. Today I have the pleasure of hosting and I have created this simple Sketch for you!!! I hope you like it and play along???


Here is my sample.....



For my card I used the gorgeous new Petals & Peace Set. It comes with a two matching Tailor-Made Classic Keyhole Spellbinder Dies. The image was inked in Tuxedo Memento Black and colored with these Copic Markers ~ E27, R14, R22, R24, G93, YG67 and Colorless Blender. The Design Paper in the background is from the BoBunny Father Christmas Collection. For embellishement I added the Red/Cream Striped Ribbon, a Doily and some Silver Pearls.

Now it's your turn!!! Don't forget to check out the rest of the team ~ Cindy, Maki, Heather, Tammy, Beate and Mona. Please also help us welcome our new December Guest Designer Theresa Pollack.

Thank you for stopping by today...I'm looking forward to your FTTC cards!

                                                                     Hugs, ~Silke~

Amazing!! But then your the Queen of Amazing cards! I love the stamp set you chose, I have to save my money for that :) Everything about it screams Beautiful :)


~ Ok, so about my turkey on Thanksgiving :) I brined it, put it in, and 2 hours later I checked it, in 5 different places, and it read 180 degrees (ideally done). It was done 1 hour before my family got there, so I tented it with foil for the hour. When it was time to eat, I picked it up to cut & plate it...blood ran out from it! Eeek! So I shoved it back in the oven (which was still on for the stuffing) and roasted it for 30 minutes. Pulled it out - dry as cardboard!! Yeesh. So I put the ham in the oven, and we ate the driest turkey I have ever made in my life. The only redeemer here was the brine, it did give it flavor, even if it was dry as "cardboard" ;)
