Hello friends and followers - so happy that you've stopped by to visit me today - Thankful really!! A couple weeks ago I watched a video on the sunburst technique. My first couple of attempts looked like a 5 year old did it - a tad heavy handed with the sponge dauber. After a few botches attempts I finally got the feel for it (it really wasn't as hard as I was making it) and the result is what you see above.
I made this card because I've been inspired many times by the beautiful sunsets that we see each night out our back patio door. I also wanted to reflect on my favorite time of year - Fall/Autumn - and
the fact that I have so very much to be thankful
for. The sentiment "thankful" is one of three new ones in a new thinlits set I got from Stampin Up! and it sums up perfectly how I feel. I feel this way when I get up each day, when I get a big hug from my daughter (who is now taller than me), when my puppies are sitting on my lap while I watch tv, when I see a gorgeous sunset, when my pantry is full of food, when I make an especially good dinner for my family, when someone else makes me dinner, when I get a good night's rest, when I hear my son's voice on the phone, when I take a long hot bath, when I see the smiles on the faces of my friends, and when I get to craft and share that with each of you as part of my wonderful and extended support network of lovely people in my life. The list could go on and on - but you get the idea :o)
I'm sharing this with you today for my DT card for Addicted to Stamps and More!
(ATSM) - Challenge #66 "Anything Goes". This is a very popular theme each month and we get so many wonderful entries. The rest of the DT ladies have also made some amazing creations to inspire you. I hope that you will pop on over and visit them and then decide to join us this week.
I'm also entering my card at Sweet Stampin'
Challenge - Autumn is here!
Thanks again for stopping by. I hope you take a minute or two to reflect on what makes you feel thankful. Til next time friends...hugs and happy crafting! D
