Endless Thanks - Simple and Stepped Up!

It's hard to believe that October is already over.  It's been a busy month for us.  We made our move from Rhode Island to Minnesota a little over a week ago and we're settling in at my in-laws for the time being.  Let's see... So far in the 4 days that we have been in MN, I have had a root canal, it's snowed and the offer we put on a house was second in line and we missed it.  Rough few days.
Then last night I was able to watch the joy on our kid's faces as they went trick-or-treating and I was reminded how blessed I am. 

Aren't they adorable? :)

I'm also so thankful for health insurance for my tooth, being close to family and living in God's will.  The house wasn't meant to be - and I know we will find a place. :)
So, speaking of being thankful and the fact that today will start the "I am thankful for..." statuses on facebook, I wanted to share with you the thank you cards that I made for my customers who placed orders this month.  I'm also playing along with the "thankful" challenge at SU Only Challenges! They're celebrating 5 years!
This one I kept very simple.  I used Endless Thanks which I order last week during the stamp sale.  I love this set already!
I also wanted to show you all how to "step it up" and add more detail to this card.  This is my card for the challenge!
What do you think?
I hope these inspire you!  I'd love to hear what you are thankful for today! 
Thanks for stopping by :)
