Happy Thoughts

Happy Halloween one and all!
I must say, once I managed to get to work today, I had a very productive day.  At one point, my research assistant and I went to the PICU to visit one of the families enrolled in our study.  While we were there, I saw my husband pass by the doorway.  Although we work on the same campus, we almost never run into each other.  I can't remember the last time this happened...well over a year, at minimum.  
The mom I was visiting came out and wanted to meet my DH because she wanted to tell him how much she appreciated me.  Awww, so sweet and unexpected, and in Spanish!!!  I know a little, my DH none, but he was so cordial, none the less.  Then he took me to show me a PICU room where the work he was doing was completed so I could know what he has been up to (installing computers/monitors/other stuff so docs can enter there orders without leaving the room).  Just a great day all around!

My card today is for the challenge at MFT.

I used MME Tangerine, that I picked up at Archiver's when I visited Margaret this past summer.  The fishtail die is from MFT and I used Nesties for the squares.  The dress and kite are paper-pieced and the square behind the image is paper-pierced.  The sentiment is also from MFT.  I colored the rest of the image with Copics.

I am also entering the following challenges:
