A Thanksgiving Card For A Little Girl

The past couple of weeks I've been showing the fall/Thanksgiving cards I made for my kids.  I showed adult cards the first two weeks, now I'm moving on to the cards I made for my beautiful grandchildren.  This week I have a card I made for a little girl, my granddaughter, Alethea.

My image is an old MFT stamp.  I colored her in with Copic markers using all fall colors.  I made her a blond because Alethea is a blond.  Then I added some pretty leaf crystals because I knew Alethea would like that.

The sentiment was stamped directly on the main image panel then I adhered the panel to an orange card base.

Alethea was so cute when she got her card.  After she opened and looked at it, she immediately knew to put it on top of the bookshelf where it would stay safe but she could still see it.  Mom has her trained well. :)

Have a Great Day!  Amy

Feeling The Blues

Now before some of you might assume I'm depressed based on the title of this post,  fear not,  I'm not feeling blue,  I'm "Feeling The Blues" in this outfit of many shades of blues!  

If you recognize this sweater, it's because I just showed it on Friday's "What I Wore" post,  only in that post I wore the sweater with blue leggings and here I am wearing it with a vest and jeans.

I'm normally not a fan of stripes, but I do love this sweater.  The stripes are minimal enough not to annoy me too much.   The length is perfect to wear with leggings, and the oatmeal color with blue stripes goes with anything.  And did I mention it is super comfy and comes in several different colors too?  I put a direct link to this sweater at the end of the post.

For footwear I chose these taupe booties. 

Since the outfit was so casual,  I went for blue statement earrings to amp the look up a little.

My new handbag from my October Stitch Fix box was the perfect accessory with this outfit.

What I Wore In October

It is the end of one month and the start of a new month, so it's time for a monthly "What I Wore" post.  These posts are just a quick review of what I wore in real life.  Most of the time I just snap a picture of myself before I walk out the door, but sometimes someone is around to do it for me.  I'm continuously amazed at how popular these posts are.  I get more hits out of these posts than a more formal fashion shoot.  Who knew women would want to see selfies in front of a mirror of everyday looks?

This is an outfit I wore for a day of errands;  the typical shopping and lunch with hubby kind of day.  

The coat is a new olive windbreaker I picked up at TJMaxx.  Everything else I'm wearing is old.  The pants are blue stretch cords from Stitch Fix that I apparently got a lot of use out of this month as they are in a lot of the pictures!

This plaid dress (JCP, old), red tights, and brown boots I wore to church.

This outfit you might have seen in a fashion post titled "Blue and Gold" that I featured earlier last month.  I wore it again when I was in Illinois visiting the kids and grand kids last week.  We went to a an animal rescue center.  It was such a beautiful place, hopefully when I'm done with my Utah Travel Series I can do a post on this special place.

I do love this gold cardigan I bought years ago.  It's such a great color for fall and it's so cozy.  I get compliments every time I wear it.  It's nice to buy a piece that has such longevity.

If you caught Monday's "Grandma & Me" post you would have seen this outfit.  I wore this to a farm in Illinois.  The top is new from TJMaxx, everything else is old.  I'm wearing the same blue stretch cords from Stitch Fix I have on in the first picture.  I love these pants!  They are so comfy.

This is an outfit I wore running errands when the weather was still warm.  I did put a jean jacket over it though.  The top is from Stitch Fix and everything else I'm wearing is very old.

I wore this NEW SWEATER shopping with my daughter and grand kids.  I just love this sweater from JCPenney.  It's nice and long so I wore it with blue leggings.

And finally, an outfit I wore both to church and on a fall hike with my hubby.  You may have seen this one too as I did a full fashion post on it.  I have those same stretch blue cords from Stitch Fix on.  See, I told you I wear them a lot!

Have A Great Day!  Amy
