Two congratulation cards in a row?
Guess it has been a special month. Today my husband defended his thesis (successfully) and is now a doctor of philosophy in Physical Chemistry. I am so proud of him. He’s been working so hard. It has been a rough couple of weeks, but all of his planning and preparation have paid off.
My in-laws are in town for the occasion and we will be hosting them for thanksgiving. It is the first time I’ve been with family on thanksgiving since I moved out of state after college -and the first time I am hosting. I am looking forward to it. So much to be thankful for right now.
I’ve made turkeys around this time of year and have often been part of a potluck type thanksgiving with local friends. The former hosts of the 6 year tradition are in Germany right now. So new traditions need to be started. It is TLC and my first thanksgiving together and we’ll be cooking together. I’m blessed with a hubby who loves to cook (though he hasn’t had much time to do that recently). I enjoy being in the kitchen with him but our kitchen is quite small. Someday we’ll have a kitchen we can both use counter space in.
This card has a foundation of a single patterned paper from a 4×6 stack including the green border and brown glitter. The paper pack is from JoAnn’s, but I don’t know the name of it. I’m trying to use papers I already have and not purchase any new ones. Then I used a cupcake stamp from CTMH which I colored in with color pencils and “Congratulations” from JadedBlossom. I used momento ink in tuxedo and hot chocolate for the stamps respectively.
