{11.24.11} so thankful…

Happy Thanksgiving!

If you didn’t start at the beginning of the Unity hop, make sure you head over to the Unity blog for all the deets.  Always lots to see and I love it when Angela kicks off our hops.

Today we celebrate Thanksgiving the US.  I probably say this every year, but this is my favorite holiday.  It is not about gifts, it is not about bunnies or candy.  It is about being thankful for the blessings in your life.  It is about spending time with your loved ones and sharing some amazing food and stories.  Maybe playing a little football or relaxing while you watch others play.  I am so very thankful for many things that have happened this year and for the memories I will always have.

And even more so for the one being delivered tomorrow… my new fridge.  Ha, just kidding.  But seriously, what a blessing and stress reliever it will be!

I am incredibly thankful to be apart of the Unity Stamp Company design team.  The opportunities and blessings this company has given me are endless.  I’m so happy to share this day with my Unity family as well.

I’m using the Give Thanks and Generations stamps sets for this card.  Seemed fitting.  These sets are just perfect for the blessed feeling I was going for.

And, I am so very THANKFUL for all of you… my friends.  I never knew the wonderful friendships I would find when I started this blogging and card making adventure.  For that, I give thanks.  Hugs to all of you.

Happy Thanksgivings
to my stateside friends.

That is all from me, off you go to Maren’s blog!!!!

Psst… I almost forgot the CREATE: blog challenge called for Thanksgiving cards this week.  Hope on over to the blog to see all the beautiful cards.
