Thanksgiving, the day, is in three days. Thanksgiving, the season, should be all year long. Some people I know keep a gratitude journal, others include their thanks in prayers. Whatever way you choose to give thanks and praise, do it often. No matter what your circumstances, you should be able to find something every day that you can be thankful for.
In keeping with the season, several blog challenges have used various themes of thankfulness this week. I chose not to do a traditional Thanksgiving card but one that could say thanks to anybody, anytime.
The branch and leaves are cut from different images on Straight from the Nest. The branch originally had small leaves but I wanted the colorful maple ones so I cut the little ones off and added the new ones. The maples were cut in two sizes from photo paper, then colored with Distress Inks. The card base and top are cream and the narrow shadow is rust. The stamp is from My Craft Spot's Thank You set and I double stamped it with Walnut Distress Ink, moving the stamp a little to make a shadow.
I am entering this card at:
