A Simple Thanks - Pals Thanksgiving Hop

                                                 
                                          2013novhop_badge







The Pals are celebrating Thanksgiving time with a hop that says thanks!  Hope you enjoyed your stop at Lisa's Queen Bee Creations!  I created my Thank You card using the sketch at Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 197 and kept the design clean and simple.  I will be sending this off to my sister-in-law at the end of the month because she hosts our family Thanksgiving every single year!  She often asks us to tell what we are thankful each year before we eat and the usual responses are of course family, friends, health etc. Last year I believe I said I was thankful for the arrival of sweet Emma!  But the cold hard truth is that every year there is also another thankful thought in my heart that I never really mention.  I am always grateful that I am not the one cooking dinner for twenty people.......



                                    Your next stop is with Diane Roberts - enjoy!

I love that big, bold "Thank You." Your colors and chevron dsp accent it so nicely, too. Beautiful card, Linda!

Adriana Benitez said...

Great card! Love the color scheme and the strip of pattern running down the side.

p.s. Your sister-in-law needs a set of flowers to go with the card. LOL I'm only cooking for 14 and I'm *ordering* the ham and turkey! :)

Ann Schach said...

Yowza, Linda! So bold and beautiful! Like you...I am always thankful that my sister hosts the big Thanksgiving meal!

Marisa said...

Love the clean lines! Fabulous use of the sketch too :)

Darnell J Knauss said...

Dawn Tidd said...

Love this, Linda! I'm glad to see you didn't forget the Candy Dots. I may CASE this one for a class! Bless your sister-in-law's heart!

Katy McGloin said...

This card is up to your usual high standards, Linda! Fresh, clean, lovely with just the right amount of detail! I love the addition of crushed curry particularly with the banner ribbon. It is funny the things we notice... I have always cut my banner edges with the chevron... yours is against and I like it better!! Yes, Thanksgiving dinner is at a friend's house this year. Lucky me, LOL!!

Greta said...

Beautiful color combo & great sketch which you used to perfection!

Michelle Gleeson said...

I love this "thank you" but I never thought to put it in a circle always a square or rectangle. It gives it a whole new look. Perfect! Thank you for the inspiration.

Wow!! Love your card!! Makes a such a statement!! Love it!!! I'm thankful I'm still cooking Thanksgiving in my home!! One day I know that will change, but for now... I'm happy. :C)

Beth Beard said...

I love your use of color; it gives the card a fresh, modern feel.

Linda love this card and the layout as well. The colors look fab together and I especially like the Large Font on the Thank You....
We also go around the table giving thanks and I'll have to borrow the "Not making dinner" IF it ever applies! hugs
