Cards and Cookies.:)






 These are a few of the cards I have gotten..almost..finished. I have the outsides completely done and am going to need to find something *COOL*..to write on the insides.:)  Plus...eventually give credit to the ones who made these CUTE characters for me to use. I knew I was going to have a limited time to complete several cards..so I used the same backgrounds ..tweaking the snowline a little on them.I am really happy with the way they turned out.:) Glitter and gems add the sparkle that completes them.




These are only a few of the cookies Christy spent this weekend making. She made so many!! Jim took a gallon zip locked bag full to share with his employees yesterday and Christy loaded up a bag for her fellow employees at the Animal Clinic.Believe me...there are more than enough for us to enjoy for several days.Especially since I am limited with the sugar I can consume.LOL The round ones with the sprinkles are soft sugar cookies that she flavored with almond instead of vanilla. They were a big hit last year!! The oatmeal chocolate chip ones.(second from top in the cookie pics) are MY favorite ones!! They are soooo GOOD! :)

 Christy is cooking for Thanksgiving this year. She did such an AWESOME job with her turkey last year..and I am really looking forward to it again. Family members are cooking side dishes etc to add to the meal. We will have Robby and his family ,our Nephew and his family and our family for the day. After the meal..those who are able to stay awake will help decorate our house for CHRISTmas. It has become a  tradition I suppose.LOL

 Thanks so much for stopping in...and please don't leave without letting me know you were here.:)

Hugs,
Valinda
