♥ Sew thankful ♥

I am truly thankful for everyone and everything in my life. Especially, friends and my family. My 4 yr old son and the upcoming birth of my 2nd son are the most precious things in my life. And I am truly grateful for them. I thank God everyday. As well as my husband, Robert, my Mom (who is my Rock in Life) and my sister Stacey, who means the world to me! {just wish you lived closer!! hint! hint!}

Another thing I am thankful for are all of you. It is such a joy to be able to come on here and share with you all my creative side and to get the feedback that I do from you all. You all mean so much to me. You have no idea. I have always said that the women {and men!} that are in the crafting world, especially cardmaking and scrapbooking, are the most nicest and generous people out there! I don't know why, maybe it's all the yummy paper, stamps and ribbons out there that make us so happy, but whatever it is, THANK YOU!!

This is a card I made recently for a challenge. I had a blast making it! I loved paper piecing that dress together. Another thing I am thankful for...beautiful papers!! I just love these papers by October Afternoon and The Girls Paperie! And aren't those little mini wooden spools just the cutest! You can find them in the wood section at Michael's.{Sorry for the different color variations in the photos!} Well, I hope that you all have a wonderful day! Take the time out today to tell your loved ones how thankful you are for them! It will feel good!!

Hugs....


P.S. I have received so many emails and comments regarding my Blogaversary giveaway next month! I am just as excited as you all to be giving away a Cricut Cake!! Make sure you look out for the chance to win one sometime next month!! Ooh, I can't wait! :)

Your card is gorgeous - so frilly and beautiful. I appreciated reading all you wrote as well. It's so easy to want more and more and not be thankful for all we do have. It's good to take time to give thanks. Thank YOU for the encouragement.
