Thanks so Much

It is fast approaching that time of year when we pause to give thanks.  Autumn can be a great season and arguably my favorite of them all.  I have a quick and fun share for you today.  I made a hybrid card.   Like I said, being on my laptop is so much easier and more transportable with a little one.  So, I designed this on the go and was able to put it all together so quickly later.

I am still loving making complete cards.  (LeAnn's definition of complete = (outside + inside + envelope) designed)  Yes, pull out your 6th grade math skills.  You can do it!  :)  I love how the liner adds the perfect and sophisticated (yet totally easy) touch to the card.  And hold the phone, operator . . . long, heartfelt inside sentiments . . . LOVE!  I will definitely be doing this one again.

I found a new love . . . my favorite paper products, Papertrey Ink, paired with my favorite digital products, Shabby Princess.  Love!

4 months

School has started and life is starting to fall back into a routine.  This is glorious as I really needed this to help Noah get on track.  He is 4 months old today!!!  Can you believe it?  I am blessed.  God is so faithful.  Most of you know that we are building a house (which is coming along great).  Because of it, I have been moving things and cleaning at our current house.  My craft room is back to full functionality!!  Yeah!!!  I have been doing all sorts of fun stuff in there.  Cards . . . sewing . . . and I have set up my computer station so that now I can digital scrapbook easily too.  I hope to start blogging about all of my endeavors.  I am trying to think it through as I have so many things to share about sewing, cleaning, cooking . . . . I just want to make sure that I don't loose my focus.  Know what I mean?

I don't have a card to share today as I am on my laptop, so I thought I would show you what I did this morning.  This is a couple of pages from our recent vacation.  Thanks for looking!
