Good morning friends! We are smack in the middle of our Canadian Thanksgiving Day weekend and enjoying some amazing crisp, sunny Fall days. There is so much to be thankful for…one being celebrating World Card Making Day with a little inky time yesterday. I viewed Dawn McVey’s Make It Monday video on glitter tabs and just had to join in. I was inspired by her poinsettia card, but just couldn’t find the urge to break out the Christmas stamps yet! HA! So will you settle for a sunflower card? I’m thinking I will bring this over to my sister’s tonight as we gather for our family’s Thanksgiving dinner. I will put a sticky note inside so she can use it again :) Do you ever do that? Thanks for visiting! Can I leave you with my favourite Thanksgiving Day poem? I posted it 3 years ago, but I think it deserves reposting :) I include it in my class’ newsletter each year…
Reasons for Thanksgiving
To have food enough and a place to dwell,
To have work to do and do it well.
To find the comfort when things go wrong
In a bit of prayer or a snatch of song.
To know the pleasure a kind act brings,
To see the beauty in simple things.
To know good books and share their worth,
To plant bright flowers in rich brown earth.
To have true friends...this is living,
And reason enough for thanksgiving.
