Happy Fall Y'all!

We've already had a few weeks of very, very cold weather. This morning, I caved and put some Christmas music into my music mix and so I get intermittent bursts of Christmas with my faves. For my crafting today, I wanted to give thanks for all my american friends who are about to celebrate Thanksgiving.


I pulled out another older favourite paper pack for this card, Generations by Simple Stories.


This image is from Saturated Canary, and like many of their images, I think she is darling!


I coloured some 'dirty' into her clothing layers. Seriously, who stays clean when doing chores or playing outside?!!


This sentiment is several years old from Give Thanks, and I admit, I had to dig fairly deep to find it among my Whipper Snapper stash!


I coloured the mulberry blossoms using the same copics I used to colour the image, just to keep everything coordinated. It is feeling really good to take a little time to colour these days! There is just so much that is continuing to consume my time, and while it is all good and necessary, I do miss having any time that I can take for myself.

Have a lovely week!
