It's Friday!  Woo hoo!  I can't believe it's almost Thanksgiving!  Gosh, it will be here in a few days.  I've been in a funk of some sort - I think it's knowing this will be my very first Thanksgiving without the girls...and thank the Lord my sister Sandy is able to fly home from L.A.  She finished her last chemo about 5-6 weeks ago.  She had a checkup and thank you, Father, she was cancer free!  She was battling Stage 2 ovarian cancer.  She is a tower of grace and strength.  She'll be home for Thanksgiving with Mom and the girls and I wont be there.  It makes me sad that I won't be there but so very thankful she is able to be there. 
I did manage to finish up two cards last night - let me know what you think!
Oh, and I forgot to show y'all the one I had finished up before:

Oh, I need to go throw chips on the smoker - we're smoking a brisket for tomorrow!  Yum yum!
Have a good one!


  1. Oh i am so glad for you and your sister. that's awesome news!! I do love your cards. they are gorgeous!!! I try to scrapbook, I buy everything, do a page, and then quit haha. Anyway Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. Hi Rachel! Thanks so much, I really appreciate it. I started out scrapbooking but have gotten more into the cardmaking right now. The last scrapbooking I did was of Tim and my wedding. I do need to finish those.
    Well, don't put any pressure on yourself - it's supposed to be fun and relaxing! Have you tried making cards?
    Have a great Thanksgiving too!

  3. I have to tell you that my name is Amy not Rachel. Last May I was asked to make to pieces of jewelery for a Cancer benefit. I couldn't use my name and didn't want to remain anonymous so Rachel Willow'z was created. Anyway I have never made cards. I would like to try sometime though.
