From Our House to Yours...

Oh my goodness, it's NOVEMBER. I don't know where the year has gone! Luckily, it's Monday, which means it's Mojo time. Today is the perfect day to get my Thanksgiving cards in gear. Why am I always so behind?
For this card, I paper pieced this adorable house image and cut out the windows to let some of the warm glow of the happy home peep through. I took a tiny roasted turkey from the From the Kitchen Of set from Stampin' Up and placed it in the window. Doesn't it look tempting? I love the sentiment, and of course the inside of the card reads, "Happy Thanksgiving" -- we'll be celebrating with just the wee one this year, but we will be thinking of all of our friends and family for whom we are very thankful for.
