Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I hope everyone is having a great Thanksgiving.  We're at my in-laws house in Pensacola and the boys are having a great time with their grandpa.  I was going to get up at 5:00 tomorrow morning to go to Target because there were a few things I wanted to get the boys for Christmas.  I ended up looking at Amazon and found the same things for the same it!  Why get up in the dark to go to the store with the crowds and hope they have what I'm looking for when I can buy the exact same things for the same price while I sit watching TV in my slippers and pjs, plus I didn't have to pay tax or shipping.  I love the internet!

I did go out to Michaels this evening after dinner with my SIL and MIL because they were open from 5-9 and had a 25% off coupon and some good sales.  They didn't really have anything that I was looking for, unfortunately.  Figures when they have good sales, they don't have much in stock. :(

Here is the card I made for my in-laws.  I distressed the edges of the card base and added some Papertrey Autumn Abundance patterned paper and inked the edges with the Chai Blend Vintage Touch Tea Dye.  The Scarlet Jewel paper is stamped with PTI's new Turning a New Leaf set with Versamark ink.  I used PTI's Fall Elegance to stamp the swirls and pumpkins on Vintage Cream cardstock.

And the inside of the card:
