Celebrating Thanksgiving Week With Family - Back November 24th

This is the card that I designed and will be teaching at Sarnia's Lasting Impression's store on December 11th, so if you're in the area, why not sign up. This is one of my favourite cards. Can you tell that there are shiny snowflakes hanging on thred from the top? And look at those little Hero Arts birds flying around.

I am away celebrating Thanksgiving week with Donnie's sister, in Ohio, and will return on November 24th. Unfortunately, there is no computer where I'm going, so I cannot blog. Please leave me a comment and let me know what tutorials you would like to see, and I'll see what I can do. In the meantime, can I put you in the mood to do some Christmas baking?

While I was baking shortbread cookies today, I had my Christmas music playing, and it really put me in the spirit of Christmas. There was just one thing missing--my daughter. She's all grown and away at university, but when she lived at home we baked together all the time.


BETH'S SHORTBREAD COOKIES


1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
2 cups flour
1 cup butter

Cream powdered sugar and white sugar together with butter. Add flour and mix well. Divide into two and roll into a ball, wrap in waxed paper and place in fridge for 30 minutes. Bake at 300 degrees F for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
