Give Thanks

There are so many things to be thankful for and I know many people keep a gratitude journal.  I started one once but I'm not good at remembering to write things down.  I do speak in prayer about the things I'm grateful for every day.

One thing I'm grateful for today is: No more political phone calls and ads. 

I have a Give Thanks card today for a slew of challenges. 

The leaves are a border cut from Straight from the Nest.  I cut them from photo paper ( I have a ton of 4 x 6 pieces that I got free one time with printer ink).  This paper takes Distress Inks very well and gives a great shine.  I printed the sentiment directly on the striped paper, added an embossed strip of matching green and this simple card is done.

It will be entered into the following challenges:

Fantabulous Cricut Fall Harvest - use leaves
Paper Players Autumn Colors
