Wow! It's the week before Thanksgiving and I've got to get busy on some cards. You know, I LOVE Thanksgiving. Not only because of the wonderful food (YUM!) but because it's a time to reflect on what we're thankful for. Everyday, we go thru the motions, hurrying here and there, being busy all of the time and striving to make ends meet and to just make it all work.
I have some advice for you.
Just stop for a moment and be still.
Take a few deep breaths and reflect.
Reflect and think about all that we have in our lives and what we're grateful for.
For me, it's a loving husband who puts up with me and all of my faults and loves me anyway. I've got my parents who I absolutely adore. I've been very lucky to have them and can call them more than my parents. They are also my friends and great, wonderful, awesome people. I've got my brother and sisters and their families and my in-laws who I don't see nearly enough, but know that they would drop everything and be by my side if I needed them. I've got great friends who I love and adore. For ALL of you, I'm so very grateful.
I'm grateful that I can be creative and share what I love with a company that I adore and make some income while doing it. I love being a Stampin Up demonstrator! I could go on and on about all that I'm grateful for but that could take an entire day and I don't want to bore you. My point to you is this - Take the time to reflect and then see how grateful you feel and how very blessed you are! Your heart will fill and overflow!
Okay, stepping off of my soapbox...
Here's a card to share with you.
Here's the outside of the card.
We made this at my Technique club meeting last month. The technique is called Mosaic and is a great way to use scraps.
You cut them up, place them on the sticky sheet, sprinkle it with embossing powder and emboss. Cool, eh?
Here's the inside of the card:
Don't you just love the sentiment? It's just perfect!
