CASC&S291 Give Thanks

Happy Monday, peeps!  HAPPY OCTOBER!  I have never been so delighted and thankful to turn September's calendar page to a new month!  Hopefully all the rain and humidity will stay away!  Looking forward to cooler days, I made a little CAS Thanksgiving card with some stamps that I got at the end of last year and finally had a chance to ink up:

I am squeaking this in for the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge sketch, which ends today:

My little mice are courtesy of Lawn Fawn, the leaves are from a Right at Home set, and they were all stamped in Memento ink and colored with blends:

I stamped the sentiment in Pumpkin Pie and added a tiny little heart in Cajun Craze.  I already had a Sahara Sand card base sitting on my desk, so I popped it on there and called it a day!  

Over the weekend, I had a friend of mine from upstate NY come down with a friend of hers for a visit!  Another family friend came to visit all of us and brought four of her six children (and she has another on the way!!).  The girls all love to do crafts and were enamored of my craft room, even though it was quite messy!  They wanted to make a card, but we didn't really have time, so I let them use some of my punches and scrap paper and take the punch-outs home!  Between looking at cards......

and punching out stars, hearts, butterflies and balloons, they ALL had a good time!  Even though Molly is only five, she mastered those punches like a boss!  Ruby, Gayle and Kay had fun too!

And just for fun, I found a picture of the oldest, Kay, (she is 14 now), from six years ago when she came to craft with me for an evening:

They all want to come back when Cassidy is home to play and craft with her!  Enjoy your day and be blessed, and thanks for popping in!
