Merci Beaucoup


Hello there.  I got a chance over the weekend to use my new PTI goodies. I'm really looking forward to making several Christmas cards with this set, but first I started with a thank you card.  Saying merci beaucoup reminds me of my parents. My nana on my dad's side of the family was French so he would quite often say this and j'et aime for I love you. I played along with the CASE this Sketch for my card.  The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye and I thought the subtle pattern was perfect for the sketch.

I thought I'd also share a couple pictures of Collin and Marcel. We almost didn't make it to the pumpkin patch this weekend, but ran out their quickly on Sunday to get our pumpkins.  Better late than never.  Marcel was all about exploring in the pumpkin patch, corn maze, etc.  Collin said, "I'm too much of a man for that now."  Needless to say I was cracking up laughing.  It was a gorgeous day.
