Hello Friends! Welcome to my blog! and I am so glad that you stopped by and Welcome to the Thankful Hearts Blog Hop that me and my dear friend and sister Lynne Kirsch and I put together...we wanted to remind everyone about being thankful and count our blessings. If you came from Anita then you are in the right place but if you happened upon my blog please start at the beginning at Lynne. :) Don't want you to miss some fab creations from these wonderful talents that are in this hop! :)
We are giving away a blog candy and you can check it out below and make sure to make a comment and that is it...easy peasy! :)
When the Holidays comes around it is like we are rushing around constantly rushing to shop, cooking and that sort of stuff that we need to realized how blessed we are by God.
I am so thankful I have my Lord and Savior and I am so thankful for many things that my list is a mile long but I am so blessed by the crafty community and recently I was blessed with a new digital cam that someone sent me and another is sending me a memory card. And I am blessed with friendships like these that will last a lifetime...and I can't wait to meet some of my friends on Facebook and I am thankful to God for my family and my sons and church and my church family.
Like I said I can go on...hehe...so I will stop here for now...and show you my project that I plan to use on my table...it is only me and my son when we have Thanksgiving dinner but don't be sad...it has been that way for a long time and we are okay with it...we serve in the soup kitchen for the Holidays...both Thanksgiving Day and Christmas day...it is good to serve and remember there is others worst off than we and we have alot to be thankful for...
I made a simple place card.....I did this with an idea from Theresa the ScrappingQueen...she did a card along this same line...it gave me a cute idea to "lift" from it...I punched out two 2" circles and then I folded one of them to use as a pop up for my Turkey (Hero Arts) from I had brought years ago and I just love this gobbler...hehe...I used the stamp on white cardstock and colored with my watercolor pencils...and then I used clear Stickles to give him some oomph...I taped him to the one half of the circle as shown...then I used the pumpkin sticker to give it something and then I use my CTMH stamp "give thanks" on the other circle and voila! :) I love it and my son is going to be surprised...I wanted to do something special this year since we in a new chapter of our lives with him being a senior in HS ...you will have to excuse the pics since they r off my not so great cell phone.
Thanks for joining us on the hop and I hope you were inspired to make something today and be thankful for your blessings...and I want to send you blessings to have a wonderful weekend. :)
In His Love,
