You're So Sweet!

 Maybe you were expecting a Thanksgiving post?  I should have some Thanksgiving cards prepared, but......I don't.  I could give you a bunch of excuses why I don't. Like life is really busy lately. Life isn't allowing me to craft as much as I'd like. But I won't bore you with the details. So instead of turkeys and cornucopias, you get a doughnut. Let's call it my Thanksgiving doughnut shall we? ;) 

I had created this card almost two years ago when I was part of Splitcoast Stamper's Dirty Dozen team. I had used my Cricut to cut the shaped card.
I cut an extra layer of the "frosting" and added a thick coat of glossy accents to it.  While it was wet, I strategically placed all of my "sprinkles."  
I added a little satin bow, a sentiment from My Craft Spot, and a little ball gem thingy. 
In just a bit I will be knee deep in cleaning and cooking for tomorrow.
Cort has school, but Kyle is home. He insists on going out to lunch with me.
I told him I don't really have time. You know, with all the cooking and cleaning I have to do. 
His reply to me was, "This may be the last time, Mom. Next year I will be away at college and you are going to miss me."
Good point kid.
Guess my house won't pass the white glove test.
Have a wonderful blessed holiday my crafty friends!
Hugs to you all!

A new Thanksgiving tradition born! I think it's wonderful. What did you use for your sprinkles? Real ones?

Donuts are appropriate for any occasion! I think most of us have the same issue with not having enough time. I only have 3 Christmas cards made and so many ideas running around in my head I hope I have enough time to do them all. So sad your son is going away to school but sounds like he is already prepping for it;) Take advantage (and pictures) of the time you have left with him!
