Hello, and welcome!
I live in a wonderful part of the world. I am free to come and go as I please. I have health and strength. I have a family that loves me, unconditionally. I have a Father in Heaven, and a Saviour, who love me, unconditionally. I have friends and neighbours who are kind and thoughtful. I have every home comfort and more than enough to eat and drink.
For these things, I am truly grateful!
I am also grateful to have a lovely hobby that helps me to "meet" wonderful, kind, generous and inspirational fellow-crafters. Having this hobby has made it possible for me to be on a couple of Design Teams and today, one of them
has another challenge that I'm hoping you all will be inspired to enter.....
I am very fond of the images at
And this week, Kathryne is our generous sponsor!
She's offering 4 images from her collection of stamps and sentiments........Fantastic prize.......when Mr. Random Thingy chooses our winner!
I had a certain person in mind when I made this sweet card........her friendship means a great deal to me.....and the "Thankful" sentiment reflects the gratitude I feel towards her........
I love the way Kathryne draws her images.....the characters always have such sweet expressions, and this little fella is no exception...hahaaa! He's all coloured up with a mix of Promarkers and Spectrum Noirs.......the papers are all from my scrap mountain.......mountain?.....it's a whole mountain range, now!
The lovely border is a freebie from Tracy at diestodiefor.com ....she always, very generously, includes a handful of die cuts in the packages she sends out! Yes, I know it's to get you pantin' for another new die....or is that just me?....but it's still nice to open the package and have something extra in there...ha!
I wonder what he's goin' to do with all that scrummy pumpkin?
The pretty heart is the latest die that I got from Tracy, and i added a tiny button with a twist of paper string......
I found this big sentiment tag in my stash.......had it for an age.....got loads more like it...hahaaa...
....and the corn button, too, from.a big box of autumn-style buttons that I bought years ago.... Couldn't decide if I'd put it upside down, or not.......it doesn't grow like that around here...hahaaa!
Okay....it's over to you.....make a card that expresses Gratitude in some way.....Harvest, Thanksgiving, anything that fits our theme....and don't forget The Twist......you must include a scripture or an uplifting quote or sentiment on, or inside, your creation.
Can't wait to see what you come up with......oh, and don't forget to pop over and see what our uber-talented Design Team have created!
