Sweet & Simple Blessings...

...you know it's a GOOD life when you can think of 100 of these-sweet and simple blessings, right off the top of your head!  I definitely can, and yesterday was a good day to reflect on that, especially after my awesome weekend w/ two of my besties, Mercy and Pammy :)  We had the best time-it's SO easy with them-the laughs come as easily as the good times, good movies, good FOOD, haha.  Everything is just fun and easy w/ these girls and every time I don't think it's possible to laugh as hard as the last time-well-something happens and proves me wrong, LOL.   Yesterday I was so happy to see the kids and DH and we just kind of hung out as a family and that, too,  always makes me smile and remember the SIMPLE blessings of this life.

Speaking of which, I hope you're enjoying my 30 days of Gratitude/Thanksgiving on my Facebook page :)  I definitely won't be able to squeeze all the "sweet and simple' blessings into a 30 day span...but I'm really happy to be given the chance to tell ANYONE I'm grateful for them.  They deserve to hear that and it feels good :)

Well, onto what you came for, right?  LOL.   Today is Tuesday and we have another fab sketch from Mercy:

I used the adorable "Gobble Gobble" set by Taylored Expressions and really enjoy creating with this October Key Ingredients kit.   I really love this shade of blue that Taylor picked out to coincide with the cute patterned papers!

I did a fun double crooked stitch around the base of my card and colored Cuppie and all his yummy Thanksgiving trimmings in w/ my Copics :)  Other than that, EVERYTHING on this card came with my October Key Ingredients, right down to that fun button :)   Are you subscribed to Taylor's AWESOME Key Ingredients club?   You can find all the information, including some fun member-only perks, HERE :)

Well, the rest of our Muses have some wonderful eye candy for you today, including our sweet guest muse, Jodi Collins:



Thanks for coming by today-I am always grateful for that as well!  Whatever you do today-I hope it's a great one, full of sweet and simple BLESSINGS :)
