Happy Monday!  And Happy Thanksgiving Canada!!!  It is so weird celebrating Thanksgiving before Halloween...just can't wrap my head around it yet.  But yesterday, we went for a nice long walk to check out a duplex on the other side of Verdun and the weather was absolutely perfect for Thanksgiving!  Sort of kicked me in the mood :)

Today also starts a new challenge at Paper Makeup's Digi Makeover Challenge!!  This week we want you to Think Pink!  And I know a lot of you are already doing that going by all the pink challenges out there supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
One of our very own at Paper Makeup is going through this battle, so we honor her and all the struggles she is going through right now with this challenge.  We continue to keep her and her family in our prayers.

Here is my card for this week:
I sort of fell a little behind on my cards with all the repairs going on with the leaking pipes in our apartment..so it ended up being a pretty simple card (because I made it late last night :) ) but I still love it.  The papers are from Michaels that I just bought yesterday and I love them!  I had this challenge specifically in mind when I looked at them and I knew they would work perfect.

I used the Hope Fairy for my image and colored her in with my colored pencils.  She is darling and I love the birdie on the end of the ribbon.

The sentiment is a new stamp set release that you can check out here!  It's so fitting and so true and I knew I had to use it on my card this week.  It's sort of hard to see in the picture but I distressed the edges of the image and the sentiment with my scissors to add a little texture to the card since it was a bit flat :)

So be sure to stop by the Digi Makeover challenge and check out all the wonderful DT creations!  And then make up your own Think Pink card and join in the fun!  We'd love to have you :)
