So Thankful

The holidays are always so hard on everyone. I know I expect everything to be picture perfect with all the family together and that never happens. Life gets in the way somehow. But no matter what happens we do end up with happy memories of the time we have spent with our family. What ever you do this holiday season please take time to visit your family and friends. Don’t worry about the picture perfect moment. Buy that pumpkin pie instead of making it from scratch, use paper plates if it will keep you out of the kitchen, take a walk and enjoy the day!

I made this card for a dear friend. She is one of my best card shoppers so I had to make a different card for her. I have loved making Thanksgiving cards this year. I think Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. But now I am ready to get busy on Christmas. It will be here next week…..!

Shared Birthday and shopping at Goodwill

It has been a busy two weeks. Once we got back from Orlando I had to go back to work. I didn’t get to any crafting at all last week and today was the first day I had time to make any cards. Here is a quick card I made for a friend who needed a “shared” birthday card. He and his 82 year old cousin share a birthday and he wanted something special. I hope he likes it! The butterflies are punched from some pages out of a book I bought at Goodwill. I thought the borders in the fairy tale book were so bright and colorful that I bought the book with the idea of using the pages for cards and embellishments. I bought a couple of other books at Goodwill and I will be sharing more creations soon. Thanks for stopping by today.
