Happy Thanksgiving cards

I only made 3 Thanksgiving cards this year. I made one for each of the kids' teachers and one for the teacher's aide that both of their classes share. I used a stamp set from The Angel Company and the Jillibean Soup Apple Cheddar collection. I also used Spellbinders Petite Oval and Labels 10 dies along with a ton of Copics. :-) (These are 4.25"x5.5" cards with the fold on the top. The ribbon is wrapped around the card front.)

I cut a little bit of the flower out before sliding the die into place. This is a good technique for odd shaped images when you don't want a lot of "white space."

 I colored this cute little guy before I decided on my designer paper. He doesn't really coordinate with the colors, but I like the "pop" of the brighter colors.

And lastly, an little Native American boy. The hair is done with Cool Gray Copics.
I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!!

oh yea, we got snow now!!

Opps, didn't mean to be away so long! My last post showed the kids trying to make snow angels. Well, let me tell you a week ago yesterday we DID get some snow. To the tune of 6+  inches. (And just so you know, it fell in about 2 hours time, AND it surprised the weatherman as much as it did everyone else! LOL)
I got up just before 6 and peek out the window, I was so excited I woke everyone in the house up so they could see this.......

Yesterday we were in the upper 30's, and I could not believe how warm it felt. :-) The snow melted a little yesterday, and the forecast is looking good into next week, so maybe, just maybe we will see the ground one more time before spring. LOL

Our first North Dakota snow

Early last week the weather reporters started warning us about a snow storm blowing through from the Rocky Mountains. AS the week went on the amount predicted varied as did the path of the storm. Saturday was to be the day! Friday it was beautiful, I did a few things outside without a jacket. Saturday came and went and no snow, the kids were so disappointed! Sunday morning just after we got out of bed we started getting some ice, and then snow. After a late breakfast (we missed church, not knowing how long the ice would last) the kids were beyond thrilled to see some snow. They both stood with there noses pressed against the sliding glass door and Hunter said, "I am so excited, our first North Dakota snow!!"
 Two seconds later they were racing around getting dressed and digging out the winter garb.
Hailey all ready for some fun in the snow! (As long as it is pink she will wear it. Does not even have to be the same shade of pink. LOL)

Hunter all ready.

LOL, here she goes out to play in the snow!! Yes, that was our snow, that teeny, tiny little bit!! You would have thought we had several inches by the way the kids were acting!

And, you can not play in the snow without making a snow angel!! LOL 

I hope you got a good laugh, I sure did. Those crazy kids!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
