So Much to Be Thankful For

I hope that as the Thanksgiving Holiday approaches that we are all blessed enough to see and to know how much we have to be thankful for. I know that I feel extremely blessed as the holidays are rolling around this year. As my family recently had a major move (my husband took a new job and we moved from New Mexico to Ohio), I am delighted about how well we have transitioned into our new home and new community over the last three months. We still have a lot to learn about our surroundings, but we really like where we are. I am also thankful for my family. My husband and kiddos are a joy! And I can't say enough about how much we have been blessed by our new friends! I give praise to God for my satisfaction, just as I have been doing over the last three months. In honor of a heart full of Thanksgiving, I have a card I'd like to share.

The SVG cut files are from Treasure Box Designs. The cardstock is Papertrey Ink and American Craft. The DP and ribbon were found among my stash and scraps. The card measures 4 1/4 x 4 1/4. I used both Memento and Color Box Inks to ink the edges and to stamp the sentiment. The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Wedding Wishes.


I will enter this card into the following challenges:
