Thankful Thoughts

What a weekend! In prepping for our Halloween party this weekend my hunky husband and I did a ton of cleaning! Whew! Its the kind of cleaning I have a love/hate relationship with. The kind of cleaning I hate to do, but I love when its done! ;) Scrubbing walls, cleaning carpets, organizing...ahhh...I do love the organizing...but yay all done for now!

We did manage to finally get to the Pumpkin Patch as well! Normally we go a lot earlier in the month, but luckily it was still fairly nice out. We take the kids to the same patch we've gone to for the last 6 or so years. Thought I would share two pics, one from 2004 and one from this year..too fun to look back! LOL they still look the same after 5 years, haha just a little bit bigger!



Ok so after having a blast at the Pumpkin Patch on Saturday, I came up with this little card Sunday night based off the SPCC #20 color combo. It is so Fall-ish and as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to pull out my old set Thankful Thoughts. Something is up with my camera so nothing looks right, even going through some of our pics at the pumpkin patch. I think its dying, but Jake has told me he can "picture" a new camera in my future...wink, wink. It will be my Christmas and B-day present (New Years Eve is my birthday!) and I'm looking forward to it! There seems to be a spot that won't pick up colors very well or something its so weird!

Anyway, here is the color combo...

And here is my card!

CS: Really Rust, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla
Ink: Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, watercoloring
Stamp: Thankful Thoughts
Misc: linen thread, Sassafras buttons
