{card sharks}

What a busy week I had last week.  Hardly any time was had being crafty.  There isn't a better way for me to jump start my mojo than a challenge or a contest.  The Scrapbook Nook is having a Card Sharks contest.  The first challenge was to pretty up an envelope and hide the sentiment inside. 


the sentiment reveal:
Paper, Brad & Chip: My Mind's Eye, Felt Flower: Jolee's, Sentiment: SRM

Can you believe we are already well into the second week of November?  Time is flying by , as it so often does this time of year.  With Thanksgiving right around the corner and Tessa's gentle reminder, I'm remembering to put into words the things I'm grateful for.  Today, it is the peace and quiet in my house.  The busy week I had last week was great fun and I got a lot accomplished, but this morning I am relishing in the stillness of my house.  What are you grateful for today?

Happy Wednesday, friends.
