Giving Thanks



For all my friends in the United States, Happy Thanksgiving! I will be spending this one with my step-son's family. We are looking forward to turkey and all the trimmings, parades and maybe a football game or two! After the mess is gone many people will pull out the paper and start making their Friday shopping list. Of course many have already scoped out the online ads weeks ago!

There are so many things to be thankful for at the Ulrich home this year. And most certainly one of mine is the chance to spend time today with family and friends. We are all healthy and happy! What a blessing that is these times! I am thankful to live in a country where I can do what I love and say what I wish. There is no fear of persecution or retaliation for being a Christian. And most importantly, I am so thankful for my Lord who gave his life on Calvary for me.

What a blessing it is to work with such fine folks at Our Daily Bread Designs. Kelley and crew have such wonderful hearts!

Love your creative layering behind your focal image. I've got some of the same dies, & seeing how you use them inspires me in ways I could use them. I never would have thought of using the floral doily to frame an image or sentiment that way! God Bless!

What a great card! And, I just love that beautiful flower. It is great! The cornicopia is so nicely framed with the doily and the wonderful frame that is the same color as the bg paper! Lovely! And, I really like how that Scripture looks on that ribbon. It looks so beautiful as it is meaningful!

I hope that your Thanksgiving Day was wonderful!
