Happy November!

Hello my scrappy friends!  What a month this has been for us, just so busy, who's sick, visiting family, Halloween....just so much!  Doesn't look like November will be much different but our Disney vacation begins on Friday....16 hours of driving during two days!  Our kids said NO! to flying since "we talk and laugh so much when we drive down to Disney."  Well, we do, but i was hoping to fly!  They'd really better make me laugh while I'm driving!

On to a card I just made for a co-worker's 40th birthday tomorrow.  She's been going through a rough patch with working 2 jobs, her kids, ex-husband, boyfriend, his's a plate full for her, so I decided to just be nice.  No jokes, I don't think she's in the mood for it.

I used The Crafter's Workshop stencil, mini organic matter mask (love this one!); My Sentiments Exactly, birthdays innies and outies, Cricut; Art Philosophy for the butterfly; SU! ribbon and gems from my stash.  I'll be entering my card into these following challenges.....Be sure to check them out!
