November Wishes

With the new month comes changes to the decor. I suppose I can't leave the ghosts and jack o lanterns up when we are focusing on blessings and joining together with our family for Thanksgiving. DD has reminded me twice that the Halloween decor must be taken down. She's ready to move onto the next holiday. She's extremely family oriented and loves when we gather as a family for holidays. We went to my sister's for Halloween to celebrate my BIL's birthday which was lots of fun. My parents had a breakfast feast on Sunday so we had two days filled with cousins, Aunts, Uncles, and grandparents. DD has been asking me for over a month when she could go to Nana and Papa's so she was thrilled to go. We also celebrated Bear's 2nd birthday! Bear is the white fluffy dog my parents receive so much love from. I adore him too! He's like a soft blanket and just wants to be held or close to you. Pure sweetness.

A couple of cards to share today. First up is "Thanksgiving Celebration".



I made this card based on CardPatterns #39 sketch, Crafty Creations challenge #39 use Thanksgiving theme, Alphabet Challenge C is for circles, and Gingersnaps Creations-use orange, green, and brown.







This card is based on Get Sketchy's #12 challenge. I was worried I would not be able to find the balance for this sketch since it has two flowers on the upper left and lower right corners. I played with the embellishments and thought it was balanced and yet still met the sketch layout. Overall, I was surprised I was able to play the blue up in the pattern paper and like the appearance. You can't really see the blue unless you right click to see full size. It looks better IRL. Anyhow, thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it!
