November SFYTT

SFYTT
 
Hard to believe this is the second to last SFYTT sketch!  Where has the year gone?!  Jumped on it early this month as I wanted to change things up from all the Christmas cards I've been making.

Love these MME papers and dove in and used this bold, flower patterned piece as my starting point.  The rest flowed from there.  Even used a sentiment from this "Jen inspired" Verve sentiment set.  It's been a while since I've used a butterfly so was happy to do crimp one and add it to the card.

Wasn't totally satisfied with the card as the cream just jumped out at me, so I distressed the edges to give it a little something and was happy with the result.

So proud of my son who played his best soccer game this season over the weekend.  He scored a goal and set up the assist for the second - all as the rain just poured down on them the entire game.  He even won the best offensive player of the game jersey.  Yes, I am a proud mama :)

Thanks for dropping by today!

this must be the last little butterfly on it's way to Mexico! I'm finding it hard to say goodbye to warm weather and daylight too :) A lovely mix of fall colours :)
