Papertakes: Thankful

Today I sit here in a different “thankful” place than I was in November…..the end of the year brings refection and with it MUCH Thankfulness.

Today I am sharing a card that expresses my “Thankfulness” but before I share it I would love to take a moment and share some things I am thankful for at the end of this year.

I am thankfully for my family…my dear sweet and wonderful husband, my two children and my grandson. I am thankful for the grandbaby on the way and the dear ones who love my children.

I am thankful for my health, my home and my friends.

I am thankful for paper and paper products that bring me much joy.

I am thankful for the good in people and am thankful for those who practice loving one another…everyday.

I am also thankful for 2011 and the opportunities it will bring…..I am thankful for life.

The challenge on Papertakes and Phiny's Place this week is


1228 papertakes


For this card I used’

Spellbinder’s Paper Arts: Labels Eight and Classic Lace Border Grand

Webster Pages: Waiting for Santa Collection

And to adhere it all together: Glue Dots

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and this new year brings you much to be thankful for.

Until next time…be creative!
