Harvest Blessings

Have you ever had one of those days where truly the entire day is wrong? I had one of those days yesterday. It was a trying day at work, my husband called me on the way home to inform me that he lost his glasses. Which by the way, were only 9 months old! Then I walk into my front door to find my 14 year old laying on the couch upset and teary eyed. His girlfriend broke up with him..... : ( So needless to say, much of the night was used to talk to him, console him, and convince him that life will go on!

Today is a brand new fresh day, and hopefully a wee bit better than yesterday! ; ) I have a card to share with you that I had created for the Cricut Circle Magazine last November. It uses the Thanksgiving Cartridge. The grapes and leaves were cut at 4". I popped up parts of the grapes with dimensional foam circles. They were glittered too. ; )
I used the Cuttlebug to emboss the background for added interest and texture.

Here's wishing you a GREAT day! May you have a FABULOUS day at work, not lose your glasses, and not come home to a sulking teenager! ; )

AHH~~I really don't like those days!! Seems like mine are always around the time of cooking for the holiday's and I end up dropping the eggs and spilling the whole sugar container and then have a bottle of pop or wine explode!! It is days like that, that I have learned to just go lay down and try getting up on BETTER side!! =)
THANKS for sharing and have a FABULOUS REST of the week!! =)

Boy... when you are 14, it sure feels like the end of the world. I have been having more and more of those days lately. Don't know what's up with that, but life goes on and days get better. The glasses would really freak me out. I could buy about 25 cartridges for what these ones cost me. Hee! Hee! Love the card! I can't wait to see all of your magazine designs this month!
