So Much To Be Thankful For

Hello crafty friends!!  Thanks for stopping by to check out my project for the Always Fun Challenges blog this week.  As summer passes us by once again and we head into another wonderful season, I just want to let you all know that I am extremely grateful for each and every one of you.  Some of you may read this and carry on with your day and some of you may leave me a sweet comment, letting me know you’ve been by.  Some may even watch my video at the end of this post.  No matter who you are and which category you fall under, I appreciate you.  Most of you don’t know me personally so the fact that you take even a moment of your already precious time to read this post, means so much to me.  I’ve never been much of a writer so I really didn’t think this blog thing was going to be for me, but the more I write and the more people I meet along this crafty journey of mine, the more I realize how much I enjoy blogging.  It’s all about the people I meet along the way, that make this so important to me.  So without getting too sappy on ya, just know that I appreciate you.


Getting back to the theme for this week, which is Fall Colors, I decided to make a card of gratitude.  I really enjoy this time of year, I love the change in temperature, I love the change in colors around me, I love bundling up and feeling the crispness of the air on my face.  This time of year always makes me stop and think about all the wonderful blessings I have in my life.  Without a doubt, I have “So Much To Be Thankful For”.  This sentiment is perfect for the way I was feeling while I was making this card.

If you’d like to join us this week with some fall colors, head over to the Always Fun Challenges blog and share with us!!  There’s a new theme each week that starts every Monday.  You can share up to 3 projects each week, using whatever supplies you have on hand.  We have a very talented design team and gorgeous entries each week.  Take a peek for yourself and you’ll see what I mean.

I’m also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge.  The theme is Emboss Like a Boss.  I love the title of this one.  Click on the link to be taken to their flickr page where you can find the rules on how to participate.


Thank you so much for stopping by.  If you’d like to see how I made this card, just click on the video below.  Just below that is a list of all the products that I used.
