Happy Thanksgiving

So last week Mark's Finest Papers did a blog hop. It was so fun and used stamps I had just purchased so it was extra fun for me! It was one of those blog hops where if you comment on everyone you are entered to win a prize. And I won one of the prizes! I got an unreleased Thanksgiving stamp set! And it made me think... I didn't have any Thanksgiving stamps! So now I do. This girl and sentiment are from the set. Isn't she darling?

I paper pieced her clothes using paper from Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl line, I colored her skin and hair with copics. The sketch here is actually today's Sketch Challange over on splitcoaststampers. It is the type of sketch that usually scares me, different layers and shapes and stuff.. But I had colored the girl last night, not knowing what I'd do with her, so I just made it work. :) Oh and I used the Papertrey woodgrain embossing plate on it too. LOVE that woodgrain plate.

In Other News:

That stinky summer cold has hit our home, one at a time mostly. Me and Ethie are overlapping. Oddly Stephen hasn't gotten it, he's usually the first to get sick. I think it's actually his being gone at school all day that's protecting him. (I'm sure he will get lice next week to make up for it or something.)

Brian comes home tonight then travel is over until the baby comes! I'm a little over 32 weeks now. I feel huge and tired but otherwise ok.

Oh I would love to see you belly! I hope everyone in the house will get much better soon. Love this little girl on your card too.

Adorable card. I too would love to see a belly pic of you (with or w/o the glasses......on the belly!)

My kids are nearly 14 & 16 & {knock on wood} have never come home with lice!!!! Even when it ran RAMPANT thru their day care, they never got it. My biggest fear when I was PG!!! Whew, one parenting bullet dodged!!!
