A Grateful Heart

Good morning!!  Though Fall is not my favourite season, I do LOVE Thanksgiving and all the talk around being "thankful" and "grateful."  Though I feel this way all year long, I do like the extra use of thankful sentiments with the rich colours of Fall.  I was flipping through my patterned paper pads (ah, more alliteration!!) and found this adorable leaf paper in my Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg to use with Mercy's sketch this week .  How sweet are those little leaves?  So I started with the paper and chose the other elements from there.  My favourite orange plaid paper snuck its way onto another card (LOL) and I added a cute leaf sticker from Jolee's Boutique (on clearance at Michaels...score!!).  I took a break from the button trees (hmm, they may be back soon, and chose one of my favourite Verve sentiments.  I say "one" because I have a "million." :D  The brown circle has been embossed to add some texture, but you need to click on the photo to get a better look.  So at the moment, I'm grateful for making this card during another busy week and for Friday tomorrow :)  What are you grateful for today?  Okay, up tomorrow...a new WaCCCky!!! ....with another special studio guest drawer!!!!!  Come back and visit!!! Hugs and smiles,

Oh my gosh, Maureen! This is absolutely gorgeous! Love the paper combo. That pack is still one of my favourites and it's time to pull it out again. Love the scarlet jewel ribbon on the orange DP. You tie such pretty bows!
