Winged Thank You

Happy Saturday! It's a beautiful day here--warm and sunny, so I'm in a great mood! Hope you're having a fabulous Saturday where you are!

I hadn't played along with the Pile It On challenge in a while, so when I found a bit of crafty time this morning, I just had to join in on the fun. (If you've never done a Pile It On challenge, you should try it--the idea is to complete their challenge, then "pile on" as many other challenges as you can.)

Here are the challenges I completed:
Pile It On--thank you card
Taylored Expressions Sketch #90
Splitcoast's CC243--neutrals with a pop of color
Cuttlebug Challenge--Thankgiving or gratitude
Flutter By Challenge--use a butterfly or fairy on your card

I'm super excited today since our new TV has been set up and our new sectional was delivered this morning! We're heading out soon to do some shopping, then home again for more home improvement projects. We've lived in this house for 7 1/2 years, and we haven't done many changes besides paint, so I'm having fun picking out new lighting, pillows, curtains, etc. We hope to finish up the living room by Christmas, then do a few changes to the kitchen over the summer.

Stamps: Short & Sweet (SU)
Paper: Bazzill white & pink Swiss Dot, Melon Mambo, Basic Gray, Basic Black, October Afternoon dp

Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Nestabilities butterflies, Cuttlebug Houndstooth, Kaisercraft pearls, dimensionals
