Sometimes one of the hardest parts of posting (I think) is coming up with a title.  So I just titled this post "Thanks". November is a month to be thankful - although every month we should be thankful for all of the blessings we have living in this country and how fortunate we are.  I have been very blessed and count my blessings every evening!

I got my idea for this card while checking out other blogs.  Monica Gale from My many many passions posted this card on her blog Saturday.  She has so many beautiful cards - check out her blog if you have time!

She is a Stampin Up! demonstrator from England and they have some different stamp sets than we have in the United States so I couldn't use the exact items to make the card but this is my version:

I love the color combo used for this card!  I used cherry cobbler, crumb cake, very vanilla, and early espresso cardstock.  The stamp sets used are Elements of Style, Four Frames and Kindness Matters.

I need to remember to take my photos when the sun in out!  When I try to take pictures in the evening - even with my bright lights shining on the card- they turn out so dark!  If you have any helpful hints for taking better photos please leave me some!

This is the inside of the card.  Very simple and enough room to add a little note inside.

It is Wednesday so we are half way through the week.  I have off Friday for Veterans Day so I may have to craft while I am off although I do have to clean the house (I wonder which one I will pick, craft or clean house, haha)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I am always thankful for the wonderful comments you leave!!
