Flurries of Thanks on Thankful Thursday

The first flurries of the year. There's no denying the excitement they bring to a classroom of children... as visions of snow days dance in their heads. And, there's no denying the dread they bring to commuters... as memories of traffic nightmares flash through their minds. 

While I've graduated from the first group to the latter, I couldn't help but love inking up the Simon Says Stamp flurries of love stamp set. Today's thank you card will probably find its way into a box of SAS4Kids cards for Nationwide Children's.  :)

Stampin' Up! whisper white; stash (AC?) purple and blue cardstock
Simon Says Stamp flurries of love images, heat embossed with Versamark and silver mbossing powder
SSS flurries of love sentiment, heat embossed with Versamark and white SU ep
Lawn Fawn mini snowflakes
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Ranger multi medium matte; Zig 2 way glue pen

This card is a CASE of a wonderful, beautiful card by Cynde over at The Pink Envelope. And, I'm going to link my version over at SSS's current Anything Goes and Work It Wednesday Challenges. 

Thankful Thursday

You may remember that we had new neighbors move in next to us about a month ago. I'm thankful for our new neighbors. They seem like a great family. 

And, I'm thankful for the big laugh provided yesterday by the high school and junior high boys. Hubby and I were making dinner. (Well, hubby was making the dinner while I was setting the table. LOL) Regardless, the high school boy was mowing the lawn when his Halloween-mask-wearing little brother decided to sneak up on him. Needless to say, brotherly rough housing ensued.... and the high school boy quickly avenged his brother's antics. Too fun for words!

Parting Thoughts

A quick reminder that we have an Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog-month-inspired challenge going on over at Words 2 Craft By. Calling all rescue pup lovers to play along.  :)

Have a great Friday. And, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
