Don’t you just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these fun leaves from Sizzix/Stampin’ Up ?! It took so much restraint to not get up and put them to work at 5 am on Saturday (my first day in a long time to have some stamp time)…. oh wait… I DID get up at 5 am to use the die! How funny am I?!
I truly needed some stamp therapy this weekend… my week was the pits. Seriously – the pits. And it did my heart so much good to turn on the music, open the windows (so I could smell the damp air and feel the cool wind on my neck – I just KNEW it was going to rain) and get my hands on some card stock. Seriously – I cannot tell you how much good it did my heart and soul.
And to sit and reflect on who we will be spending Thanksgiving with (family) and who I will get to see over the next few months. To be reflective, like I usually am, I love this time of year. We somehow make time to see those important to us… we eat and laugh and reminisce and share stories and just have a good ol’ time.
So I as I sat there and made this version 2 of my Thanksgiving cards my heart was warmed. And the cares of the week wore off for a bit…
I’m so blessed to have stampin’ time and the hobby to share with my friends and family.
So, on to the details for my card…
