grat-i-tude (card 2)

In our second line-up in my Thanksgiving cards, we have this little cutie!

I wanted the glittery leaf to be the focal point of the card (because I got it in a set from Michaels with papers and stickers and a ton of stuff for like $1.99!! Holy cow!! I would have bought 1 for Naomi and 1 for Christy...but they only had one left :( sorry girls....)

My mom and dad just got off a week long cruise (so jealous) but I was so excited for them because they have not been on a cruise since the Big Red Boat (uh like 12 years ago...and now it's a floating prison, lol -- no joke) and they haven't been on a vacation by themselves since like their honeymoon (I have no idea if that is true or not but it's been a looong time). So they had a great time!! The thing was, I wanted to pick up the phone and call them so many times while they were gone :( It made me realize how lucky I am to have such great parents, and to have them so close (last year, they moved literally right up the street from my husband and I...we were a little worried at first that they would just drop by unannounced, but they have been really good about not doing that, lol, thank know, we are are still kind of newlyweds, haha!!)

Well, that's all for now!! Enjoy!
