Hi everyone! Man, the leaf season is upon us! Brock and I have been out in the yard that last four afternoons raking leaves on to tarps and dragging the tarps to the street for the leaf vacuum. Such backbreaking work, but dragging them down to the street is much easier than bagging them all! I really don't know why we do it anyway. I tell him when we go to the park with Riley "Look at all of these trees and all the leaves they drop out here. The park doesn't rake these up. They just sit here and rot, and come spring are we still knee deep in leaves? No! We have grass come up just like always." But he still wants the leaves out of here. I know it does make the yards look nicer, but I'm not convinced it's worth it!
It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving will be here two weeks from today! With that in mind I wanted to create another Thanksgiving card and I thought this was a quick and easy one to make.

I used one of the adorable Thanksgiving circle images that Robin Willis has drawn for Squigglefly. This one is called Indian Girl. She's colored with copic markers and the scalloped circle is sponged on the edges.
the designer paper is from Debbie Mumm and I used a Martha Stewart border punch on some kraft card stock on the sides. I think a little note card set made with all of Robin's Thanksgiving circles would be cute.
I gotta tell you something funny. You know I'm fur baby sitting for Chesney's pets this week while they're on vacation. Well she had left me instructions on how much to feed her four cats and she told me where each cat's food dish was. She said Max eats in the bedroom away from the others because he will eat their food, Bourbon's dish is by the sink, Georgie's dish is by the refrigerator, and Penny's dish is by the stove. So, I'm there trying to keep all the cats straight in my mind and they are all following me around in one big group. I get the bag of food out and turn around and see all the cats patiently sitting in front of their respective dishes waiting for the food to appear! Max was in the bedroom poking his head around the door to see if I was coming! It was just so funny when it happened.
Well, I hope you have a fantastic day ahead of you and thanks for looking!
