Thanksgiving Card ~ MM267

Every day on Facebook this month I have been listing what I am thankful for.  Honestly every day I am filled with thankfulness for so many things.  My life has truly been blessed.  Not to say it hasn't had it's trials, just that I have had a life filled with love.  What could be better?  So, in honor of this month of gratitude and reflection through the eyes of Thanksgiving I decided to make a few cards.   My plan is to send each of the cards you will see over the next week to family members.  It just might be the first year I've sent Thanksgiving cards.

For those of you not in the USA, it's never too late to be grateful and send a thank you card.  ;)  My card today comes from the Mojo Monday sketch this week.  Every week they manage to come up with a new, divine sketch for us.

As you can see I had fun with coloring.   I used my markers and a blender pen to color this image.   Such fun.  The papers come from SU's Comfort Cafe DSP.  This pack of papers is wonderful for Fall cards. 

My favorite thing about this card is the custom button I made.  Basically I stamped the Give Thanks sentiment from the Full of Blessings stamp set onto Very Vanilla Cardstock using Soft Suede ink.  Next I punched it out using Little Labels punch pack.  I used a glue dot to stick the punch out to the Brushed Bronze Button and used another glue dot to adhere the button to my card. 

The strip of paper in the middle of the card was created by taking Cajun Craze cardstock and stamping off with Cajun Craze ink before stamping onto the paper in a random  pattern.  Easy as that I have a custom background paper. 

There is lots of dimension with this card, so I'll probably have to pay extra postage, but my family is worth it.  :)

Creative Blessings,

This is a lovely card - your coloring is beautiful, and the color choices so rich and autumnal! Listing the things you are thankful for is a lovely idea. I, too have been so blessed, and it is so easy to take all the blessings for granted.
