Happy Thanksgiving!


My card for the #56 Bella Sketch Challenge on the SCS forums. Uses My Minds Eye papers, Clickabella, and sentiment, cardstock, and embellies from CTMH

I hope all my US sisters have a great Thanksgiving today! And the rest of my blogging sisters around the world have wonderful day as well! Since it is Thanksgiving I wanted to thank all of you for being a part of my life. Knowing that people actually get online and view my creations for inspiration inspires me to be creative, to make time to create, and essentially take time for myself! I'm thankful that you visit my blog, thankful for all the amazing support I have received from such wonderful crafting sisters, thankful for all the inspiration, friendship, and love I have felt from sharing my life with you.



Tuesday afternoon our family received a package in the mail that was sent with love from gals I know online and anonymous ladies as well, each with such large hearts. Vicki B. had sent us a package that contained cards, images, and other wonderful gifts from these different ladies on SCS. There are so many images, this really was amazing! I would love to personally thank everyone that participated as it really lifted my spirits and touched my heart so very much, but since there were a few anonymous gifts I will have to settle for hoping that you all get to read this and know how very thankful I am for your friendship and generosity. The heartfelt messages in your cards were a warm blanket of comfort and your gifts showered us with kindness. And I am so very thankful. We as a family are so thankful for this wonderful surprise. Vicki had said that you guys just wanted to do 'a little something' for us and I want you to know that maybe even if you thought your gifts were little, they are a big deal to us!



And just for fun I thought it would be nice to post 10 random things I am thankful for today :D Feel free to play and post your 10 thanks on your blog! (This pic is from my house. If you look closely you can see the girl's fingerprints on the cabinet top, lol!) So here are my ten:

1 - Family and Friends (okay so that one isn't random, lol but it is definitely important!
2 - Homemade Quilts
3 - Vicks Vapor Rub (The girls and I spent the last week with stuffy noses and sore throats)
4 - The color of fall leaves
5 - The sweet scent of my girls
6 - Chilly mornings
7 - My hubby's freshly shaved face (minus his goatee of course, lol but it's soft right now so that's okay ^_~)
8 - Freshly baked cookies
9 - Handmade cards
10 - And Knee Socks (I have an obsession with them, lol)

Last but not least I'm thankful for not having to cook the turkey, lol!! I know that's eleven but once you get going it's hard to stop at 10!! Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope your turkey or ham or whatever you are having tonight tastes great and the company is wonderful as well!
