Gearing up for a Bountiful Thanksgiving


Happy KSS Monday! 

No matter where your travels take you this holiday, I hope you are gearing up for a

Bountiful Thanksgiving!

Today’s card, stamped using 3 Step Turkey Trot and Multi-Step Classic Old Truck, was inspired by playing along with a couple of challenges: Freshly Made Sketches (FMS113) & Color Throwdown (CTD269). I rarely get my act together in time to play along, so this was a fun treat!




Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy (and inky) KSS Monday!

Don’t forget to check out what the KS Crew has cooked up for you today.

All Star weekend in Georgia!

Happy Kitchen Sink Monday… and happy is an understatement!

This weekend was KSS’ first workshop, which was held in Warner Robins, GA. My dear friend Traci (who joined me to add a helping hand) and I, had the time of our lives!!!! It was a thrill & joy getting to meet and work with KSS Crew Members: Dee (who made all the arrangements), Lisa & Lynn (who both traveled many miles to help and share their projects at the workshop) …. along with the pleasure of getting to know and spend a full day stamping with an amazing and charming group of ladies who came to learn all they could about multi-step stamping! Thank you ALL for an incredible weekend ladies! And heartfelt thanks to Dee, Lisa, Lynn & Traci… this event couldn’t have happened without you all!:)

I promise to share photos and more details from the workshop as soon as I get home (I am probably still flying home by the time this post is published) and can download my photos (yup, left my camera USB cable at home! I knew I had forgotten something at home!).

While I was gone enjoying Georgia’s sweet southern hospitality … my 3 men (DH & 2 DS) were home having a great time too, which included an awesome Dodger game! Since it was also a Father & Sons weekend at my house, here is a belated post with a Father’s Day card that had slipped by me and I never got to share.
