Our Crafty Saturday

We decided to make some Thanksgiving cards today. We got out all our supplies, including Coke for me, since I stayed up too late last night!

What a lovely sentiment Kelli. Your cards are so pretty and those your children made are as charming as can be!

Kelli, the bottom part of your chat box is not showing. That's the part you type the message into. My chat box is not showing at all on my blog. They must be working on them.
