Give Thanks Challenge at For Fun

Helen at For Fun has challenged us this week to give thanks for something. If I had to list everything I'm thankful for this would be a VERY long post so I'm going to keep it short and simple. I'm thankful to be alive and to have a strong belief that my Heavenly Father will take me home to peace, tranquility, and eternity when my body no longer serves a purpose on earth.

Thanks to my blogging pal Eulanda, for the adorable place card she made last week and for the inspiration to create some for our Thanksgiving table. Only have to make 8 and that's not too bad. I'm thankful to have 8 family members who live close enough to be able to get together for dinner.

Tools and stuff used:
  • Image ~ Indian Corn ~ from Karen's Doodles
  • Colored with Copics
  • Spellbinders Die to make shaped easel place card
  • DP: Debbie Mumm Fall paper pack from last year
  • Ribbon from stash
  • Cinnamon Stickles
  • Gathering in Gratitude from Debbie Mumm Fall embellishment package
  • Will add name to bottom left hand corner once I get the others done and cut out all names on the Cricut
Be sure to stop by the For Fun Challenge blog to see all the great creations by the design team and then post a link to your entry for this week. We all have something to be thankful for and I can't wait to see your wonderful creation.

I am also entering this place card in Cute Card Thursday Challenge - Anything goes

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again real soon. If you have the time to leave me a comment it will be much appreciated and then I'll hop on over to see what's new with you.
"Hugs" Carol
