Happy Thanksgiving to all My Friends

Good Morning! I hope you're well today. My children were very happy this morning that this is the last day of school for awhile. They were groaning just a little but they'll be OK.

I just want to take this time to reflect on what I am thankful for during this Thanksgiving season. I have many blessings to count... I have a wonderful hubby and children, my sisters who are my best friends, and friends that are the best. I am thankful that we still have the freedom to worship freely and am very thankful that we have a God who loves us. I am also thankful for my stamps - they are my therapy and enjoyment when my family is away.



Here's my Thanksgiving card using Inktegrity's adorable turkey and pumpkin images. Of course I am participating in a few challenges. I colored the images with Copics. I did use the little acorn from a PTI set (Limitless Labels) and I used the Argyle CB folder for the pumpkin pie card stock piece.

1. Friday Sketchers - the sketch. Wonderful!
2. Just Us Girls - the color combo. Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie and Really Rust. I was very excited to see that I still had a few scraps from SU! paper pack Apple Cider, at least that's what I think it was called.
3. Stampin' Sisters in Christ - make a Thanksgiving card.

I also want to invite you over to my challenge blog, Tuesday Morning Sketches, for a fun sketch and wonderful sponsor!!
