attitude of gratitude

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog.

Today was my day with my grandsons.

 It was such fun and I love going to meet their school bus. We did homework and I made them something to eat.

They wanted me to sleep over and then stay until they come home from school  tomorrow. This really tugged at my heartstrings, but  I already have plans for tomorrow. They wouldnt let me say no-they said "just think about it Grandma".

Aidin asked me to take his picture so he could be on my blog. He is holding the card I made. Then he asked me to take Austin's picture and put him on the blog as well.

So Aidin here you are!!

And Austin here you are!!

Aren't they 2 good looking boys?? Ethan was outside playing so he doesn't get in this time around.

Now onto my card for today. I made this one for the November "viva la verve" challenge Each week in November, Amber, posts a sketch and if you complete all of them you are eligible to win the Verve stamp release for November.

This sketch also had an inspiration photo with it. The colors in the photo were all about fall. So I decided to make another Thanksgiving card.

I made it a square card for the challenge on the crazy for challenges blog. Cindy Haffner is the hostess this month.

I had a die-cut in my stash from Darcie Stamps and this cute little screcrow is the focal image on my card.

Here is the sketch
and the inspiration photo.

i stamped my background with different leafs from the Stampin-Up "fantastic foliage" set.

That's my celan & simple card for today.

So blogger friends until next time.........
