Thankful Season

We had, what I consider, a great day at the Doc yesterday. For more information see our family blog of the side bar. So I thought for today's Sketch Challenge card a Thankful card would be great, besides I just got this set so I had to use it!!! I am very thankful beyond what words could express. I have 6 wonderful kids, a beyond great husband, a very supportive and loving extended family, church family and friends. On top of that all is the fact that I know I am in God's hand no matter what is going on in my life. Ok, now that I have wiped away the tears... my card. I was so in a coloring mood yesterday but the color challenge did not give me the opportunity to do so like I wanted to. So this was a great chance. I love this card just because of the colors. I love fall colors!! As you saw in yesterday's post I just got the Crop-a-Dile. How I lived so long with out it, I will never know. I dreaded eyelets before, because they were too much work and loud. This makes it so much easier and more eyelets are now on my wish list!! The Words are embossed. I stamped the leaf under the words off once to lighten it. The leaf was stamped on vellum paper and cut out. I did not want more card stock to take away from the main image, but needed something there to complete the sketch. I colored the image with re-inkers and an Aqua pen.

I hope you are all having a great week and would love to hear what you are thankful for!!!
