Thankful for You

Hi everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had a nice dinner with just the three of us. I am trying to keep my stress level down this year for the holidays, so it was a simplified dinner and we took a few shortcuts like purchasing a smoked turkey. So much easier. Now we just need to do that for Christmas. :)  I made this card using the cute Happy Trails stamp set from Kindred Stamps. I love the browns and greens. I want to enter in two challenges, DL.ART Thankful Thursday and Crafter's Castle Monthly Challenge.

I am off to play a board game with my family. Laila doesn't have school tomorrow and then starts her new school on Tuesday. I'm nervous about it, especially since they haven't sent us any info. :/  She got her hair cut last week and it is so cute. Today she had to try on glasses because I think she feels left out that she's the only member of the family without them. She looks adorable of course. :)

Have a great week and thank you for taking time to look at my card. :)

Rainbow Butterflies

Hi! Sorry it's been so long. Do rainbow butterflies make up for a long absence? lol I saw the challenge at As You Like It and it has two of my favorites as choices, rainbow or monochromatic. I chose rainbow because I need the hope right now, plus I love all things rainbow. Who doesn't love bright, fun colors? I used a butterfly set from Avery Elle and colored them twice so that I could layer them. Super fun.

This is Laila getting ready for school...or not. lol  She's been having a tough week. She is moving to a different school after Thanksgiving and I think she's having a hard time with the idea. She loves her teacher so much. She just can't keep it together in a normal classroom, so we are trying a small, behavior classroom before we give up on public school. We are at a loss on how to help her and it's been a very emotional time for us all.

Now I'm off to take down all the Halloween decorations and put up some leaves. lol Just a little behind.
