Thankfully

Hello!

What kind of day are you having? Is it sunny? Rainy? Is there snow? It's about 40 degrees here with rain. Not a good day for outdoor activities. But it's perfect for hanging out at home and taking it easy! Christopher is creating a train layout on his computer here in my office while I blog and craft. Mr. Dan went to fetch some groceries and will spend time reading magazines and playing his guitar. This kind of weekend would have bored me to tears once upon a time. Today, it's the little things, the simple everyday things, that make me happy. I'm going to bake some pumpkin cupcakes, we'll carve our pumpkins and roast the seeds. How about you? What are your plans?

Before I get to the crafting portion of my day, I have a couple cards to share with you. Would you believe these cards started out as a scrapbook page? I created a page yesterday that along the way lost its focal point. Some projects are like that, they don't turn out as planned. This time I had the idea of cutting it up to make some cards! I salvaged the photos and added a couple things...and here you have it.


I used an adorable new digital kit from Two Peas in a Bucket called 'Thankfully' by Polka Dot Pixels. Love this turkey and the children rolling that huge pumpkin along!


I almost created a sign for this turkey that said, "Eat Tofu-rkey!" :)


Instead, I opted for this cute phrase from Bella Blvd.


I like the way these cards turned out...cutting up my page wasn't such a bad idea! I have two cute cards instead of one bad page! ;)


Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture of my page to show you before I put it on the chopping block.


 
I hope you enjoy whatever you have planned for the weekend! I think I'll add a cat nap and reading to my weekend agenda!

Enjoy!

Kathy :)

I love those cork stars! The weather here has been pretty nice, but chilly. The deer ate our kids pumpkins after we carved them! We have an extra one so we'll probably carve that one today. :)

What a great idea, Kathy! Don't know what the page looked like, but these cards are absolutely adorable. Love the design on them. Both so unique and eye catching.
