The other day as I was logging into the Stampin’ Up! website I fell in love with the Give Thanks card on the main page. I didn’t have the exact supplies, so I set out to make it with what I have. I pulled out my Autumn Traditions designer series paper and paired it up with patterned paper from the Crushed Curry Prints designer series paper package. I liked it so much I’m even using it as one of the cards are my class tomorrow. Unfortunately I won’t be able to be at the class, but I sent all of the materials since I had all of the packets made up to my Mom and she is going to run the class. I decided that since Evan has Influenza A and probable H1N1 and I could be carrying it too that I’d rather be safe than sorry and not get anyone else sick. I’m glad I sent the stuff along because I woke up with a sore throat today and don’t feel 100% myself. I guess that comes with the territory of taking care of 2 sick kids over the last few days.
To make this card:
Soft Suede 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
Autumn Traditions dsp 4 1/2 X 3 1/4 and 1/2 X 4

Yesterday Colin came home from school and told me that out of 23 kids in his class there were only 12 in school. Apparently Influenza A is going around his entire classroom. I’m crossing my fingers that they all get it out of their system now and that the rest of the winter goes much more smoothly.
