November 26, 2016 - Autumn Cards


This is the "last" of my autumn/Thanksgiving cards before I truly get in the groove to make Christmas cards.  The first two cards were made at a recent class that I helped one of my BFF's.  We had 10 women, 1 child (who was so well behaved and talented) and 1 man.  We made 4 cards and we were hopping the entire class as only a couple of the students had ever made cards before.  But it was fun, and I truly enjoyed the ladies.  Food helps as well and they had two trays with fruit/dip and cookies.  

The last card is one I made at another class - minimal stamping, just the sentiment which is from AMuse studio (which is closing in 2 days).  The sunflower and DP came from Hobby Lobby and I love the way this turned out. This was given to another BFF along with a small token of our friendship. 

This Thanksgiving, my husband and I helped at a transitional house shelter as none of the adult kids came home this year.  We helped prepare, serve, deliver, and the all important "clean up".  1500 meals were served just on Thursday.  We are so blessed and give thanks for what we take for granted in our life.
