Are we really a thankful society?
It doesn't seem so.
There are many thankful individuals out there, but it seems that we as a society have lost what it means to be thankful, to appreciate our blessings, to earn and not expect.
I am thankful.
I am thankful for my family and friends and their love and support, for my home, for my job, for my fur balls. I am thankful for the gift of creativity and the means to support my habit. I am thankful for people who take the time to read my ramblings and view my creations and, if they are inspired, leave me lovely comments.
- All of the papers are of course from My Mind's Eye. The combination of patterns and rich amber tones with black accents says vintage country mercantile to me. Love it.
- I colored the pumpkin illustration with Distress Markers, then spritzed the entire image with water to blend / bleed the colors, just like Tim :-). I then fussy cut the image and accented areas with Distress Stickles.
- The ribbon I used is simply too bulky to make a bow for a card, so I cut a couple lengths and tied them together with twine. Sort of a faux bow!
