A Pink Aluminum Christmas Tree

For some reason, the Pink Paislee Tinsel Town collection reminds me of Lucy from Peanuts saying that she wants a pink aluminum Christmas tree!!! So it should come as no surprise that I stamped this Christmas tree in Pixie Pink ink!!! :) I love the funky combination of colors in this line, and this card just makes me happy!

You know how you often have to sand clear acrylic stamps to get a good impression with dye inks? Well, you do NOT have to do that with the Pink Paislee stamps! YAY! I was so thrilled to get a perfect image the FIRST time! :) We have the Tinsel Town clear stamp set at Limelight, as well as the Sweet Cakes stamp set, which matches those super scrumptious papers!!

We have quite a busy day ahead of us! My parents are coming today to spend the holiday with us (we do Thanksgiving dinner at our house...love doing that!) and we have a community Thanksgiving service at our church tonight! I am making pizza (and the moderately easy tomato sauce..yum!) for dinner, plus a fun new recipe I found in Family Fun magazine for the service tonight. I may share a recipe with you later, depending on how it turns out! I am also planning on making Cranberry Lemon scones for Thanksgiving morning, and I want to make the dough ahead of time and freeze them...hopefully I can get that done today, too! I got the recipe from Smitten Kitchen, of course, and they are SO yummy! Believe it or not, I think they are better as leftovers the NEXT DAY! You can find that scone recipe here. Oh, and if you try this recipe, I DID use fresh cranberries (for the first time) and they were SO perfect.
