How Great Is Your Joy and Blog Candy!

Today I have been thinking of many of the things that I am thankful for. As Thanksgiving, and Christmas get closer memories of family and friends always come to mind. I am SO blessed in so many ways. I have an amazing family, Husband, beautiful Son, and wonderful friends! There are many out there who have much less then I do . I am humbled and grateful to my Heavenly Father for all of the many blessings in my life. What are you thankful for?

For today's card I used the Stampin' Up set "Delightful Decorations, and a set by Inkadinkado "Cool Christmas". The branch, and ornament were embossed with SU Nightof Navy embossing powder, and SU Hunter Green embossing powder. I tied to ornament to the branch with SU silver cord, LOVE that stuff! I also used my brand new Cuttlebug folder that I got in the mail this week! I used my brayer and my Brilliance Platinum Planet pigment ink and embossed with clear powder. I also inked the edges of the oval with the same pigment ink. I used my nesties on the scalloped oval. I LOVE how this card turned out!

Well my friends, I have approached a mini milestone of 200 posts on my blog! Yippie! So, to celebrate this fun occasion, I will be giving away some blog candy! There are 2 ways you can enter, #1 - Leave a comment telling me something you are thankful for, and #2 - Follow my blog! I will pick a winner one week from today, Nov. 22th!
*editing to add additional goodies (TONS of ribbon!) to the blog prize and adding a few days for people to enter*

I am thankful for my good health and my wonderful family.

I love your card Ronnie! It's so elegant looking with that Night of Navy color. I'm going to have to try that. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Veronica,

I follow you through feedblitz. Congratulations on the big milestone! I have about half as many posts as you!

I am thankful for everyday. I try to keep things as simple as possible, which is totally against my nature, so it's a daily struggle. If I remind myself that each day is a gift it's easier to manage any stress I put on myself!

Congratulations on 200 posts! Your card is so elegant. I really like the white and Night of Navy together. It looks great with the embossing folder.

I am thankful for so many things. I was thinking the other day that I am going to start a journal and call it "a million little things" and just start listing all the things I am thankful for. I am so blessed!

I am thankful for my 2 daughters -- the loves of my life.

I am also thankful for all the talented crafters that share their creations ... and help me become a better stamper, scrapbooker and papercrafter!

Congrats on the 200th post! I am thankful this year because my husband and I both have jobs. He spent most of last year looking for work. And I am thankful that due to that, we are actually able to spend time together instead of passing each other as we ran back and forth working as many small jobs as we could.
