Happy Thanksgiving today to all who celebrate the holiday. We all have things to be thankful for, no matter what the day. I just want to tell you that I'm thankful for all of you bloggers that drop by and say hello. You have been an enormous help to me these past few weeks and I enjoy reading your comments. Today I'm sharing a card I got from a friend that I stamp with. I love the colors she used on this one. Love to you all and be kind to one another.

Today's the day I go order my new glasses. I'll be so glad to have them as I am having a hard time reading.  It is so windy today. I keep hearing a sound from the roof that I don't like but I can't tell what is making it. The roof is still on the house and my craft stuff is safe, so I'm not worrying about it. I'm showing my crafting helper today and how hard she works. It just shows how tiring it is to make cards! This card is for my brother in law who had a hip replacement last week. He is home now and doing really well. I love these Art Impression stamps and the sayings they have. They are a hoot. I kept it real simple as it is a guy card. No frills but I did add a gray pearl to the stethoscope.  Be kind to one another.

This week is moving too fast for me. I'm not ready for the holidays yet. I finished my Thanksgiving cards and need to catch up with cleaning before next week starts. I used some left over patterned paper for these cards so I am entering in These are DeNami stamps and I love the tiny images. I used a Cuttlebug Provo Craft embossing folder and sponged some ink on it. I hope it's warm where you are. I feel so bad for the places in New York that got so much snow and still getting more! Be kind to one another.

I checked in on The Paper Players Challenge Copy and Paste our Badge for your blog! yesterday and was delighted to learn their challenge this time is for a thank you card. I needed to make a thank you card for my eye clinic that did my cataracts. They did a great job and sent me a beautiful plant afterwards. I think this is "clean and simple". I did add eyes to the glasses because that was for the eye clinic! I did add a pair of glasses to the envelope too. Be kind to one another.

I have a fun project for you to try. I found this on Pinterest by It is called "A Box of Sunshine". I am sending it to my friend, Martha, who is undergoing chemo every third week. I thought it might cheer her up. Darnell of  taught me how to figure out Pinterest. I could never figure out who actually made what was pinned. I made a quick card to go along with it. This stamp from Stampin Up was used and I didn't get a real clear image but I did it several times and this is the best. I don't think she will be picky about it. Be kind to one another.

Okay I was a little mislead. The polar vortex isn't coming until tonight. I kept hearing about it on the weather and when I went out the other morning it was cold, so I thought that was it. It turned out Sunday and Monday were beautiful out. Today is nice too. So I have been doing all my running errands and cleaning up the yard since it is so nice out. We have one Dr. appt. tomorrow afternoon and then I hope we are finished for a while.

This is a card I think came from stamp camp last year and I didn't use. It uses older paper from Stampin Up and has gold cord around it and a leaf punched out. Be kind to one another.

The polar vortex has popped in for a few days. We are snug inside and being like slugs. Went back to Dr. Wed. and he said DH's infection is almost gone and to stop the antibotic because it has caused a rash all over. Now he has a fungal thing going on. We are to keep clean and dry and he has five days of pills to take. Then the rash and fungus should all be gone. Then I will shut up.

The card for today is one I saw last year but I don't know where or whose it was. It is an embossing folder background, an oval punch, sentiment and ribbon. Can't get much easier than that. I'm only making a few Thanksgiving cards this year. Then it's time to start Christmas cards. I know many of you make them all year long and I should do that too. Then it doesn't take too long to get them done. I keep all my Christmas stamps and stuff in a tub that is put away until it's time to start making them. Right now my tub of Halloween and Thanksgiving stamps is out and in the way. Two tubs out would be too many in my little room. I stumble around as it is. (That's because I'm clumsy)! That also says I have too much stuff BUT I think there's a law that says you can never have too much stamping stuff. I don't want to break the law. Be kind to one another.

Oh what a beautiful day! The sun is out and my eye is okay. Well, sort of okay. Well, not broken.  They assure me the spot that is cloudy will clear up and go away. They didn't seem concerned about the sparkles. They did a complete scan to look inside and make sure nothing is wrong that they can't see. My sight, which seems to me not as good as the last time I went, is better. In two weeks I can order new glasses. I am so relieved that things are okay. Thanks for all the good wishes. You guys really lifted me up this past month when things were yucky. Now if I can just get hubby on the right track.
Speaking of lifting me up, I have three terrific cards to show you today from other crafty friends.  This first one is from Mary of Mary's card had texture in the gold sparkly embossing powder and the bat was raised and backed for dimension. It has such a fun happy witch. The next two are from Brenda at She also sent the most beautiful waterfall folio for pictures and notes. It is gorgeous and very detailed. I know it took a long time to make and I love it so much. On the Halloween card she stamped the background. I thought it could be patterned paper but she did it herself.  The last card is from Brenda also. It came with the folio. A darling basket with an apple and leaves and the cutest circle sentiment.  They are all so appreciated and I'm thankful to have such great friends. All of you are fantastic. Be kind to one another.
