No Chicken Patties For Me
Me (to the husband): You know, I've never cooked a turkey. Do you want me to try for Thursday?
Husband (to me, with a worried expression): No, we can just have chicken patties.
Me (with a disgusted look): What? No way! I'll try to cook a turkey.
Husband (with an aha moment): Let's just grill steaks, ok?
Me (relieved): Yes, that will be fine.
I hope your Thanksgiving was a great one (if you celebrated it!) and are well relaxed today. Our steaks did turn out excellent, by the way! I'm featuring the lovely stamp set Rustic Tiles from Skipping Stones Design in my card today, on sale for just a few more days! I love this stamp set, because the tiles can be delicate and soft, charming and quaint...or bold and beautiful!
I chose the colors based off the palette over at The Play Date Cafe. Started with the gold base and panel, stamped the panel in deep red and then misted with orange. A bit of inking on the edges and a stamped sentiment, along with a fun, simple fiber treatment and you've got a bold, rustic card.
And since it is Black Friday after all, what a better time than to showcase this card and corresponding sketch featured over at the Scrap Rendez-vous Blog. I'm delighted to be a guest sketch artist again!
