Giving Thanks - PPA226, CTS98





November is the month of Thanksgiving.  But why wait until Thanksgiving?  Thought you might like to know what I was thankful for today.........

1- Forgot my umbrella for my morning walk but the sprinkles that started when I was a mile from home cleared up in two minutes.....who needs umbrellas?

2- The dog has an infection and needs people antibiotics - yikes - but they were only $14.57!

3-  After 30 years of living with a garage door that only my husband could open (I know hard to believe) we ordered a new one today with an automatic opener!  I am delighted but then again there obviously isn't much in the garage I need............

4- My husband just remembered he needs to bring chocolate chip cookies to a meeting tomorrow so guess who had to get busy in the kitchen?  Oh but now there are warm chocolate chip cookies in the kitchen and the CMA awards on TV.........definitely thankful!



And I am thankful to be part of this wonderful online stamping community!  We have a great fall color challenge at Pals Paper Arts this week.  Hope you play along!

                   I was also inspired by the cool sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.

What a neat sketch, and have to say I probably would have turned it sideways as you have done. Love the feathers on your card. :)

I just love to see a splash of color behind a sentiment. Plus I never see enough of those feathers! And your lovely post reminds me that we have much to be thankful for if we only take a moment to look around!

Firstly, congratulations on your new garage door. I hope it gives you many years of smooth operation :) And now onto your card. I'm with Jen - the stamping behind the sentiment always draws the eye. This is a wonderful card using beautiful autumn colors.
