Happy Thanksgiving!

 

I know not all of you celebrate this holiday, and some of you celebrated a month ago, but we can all take a moment to focus on what we are thankful for in our lives.  Part of the sketch this week at 2 Sketches 4 You was to list 5 things  that you are thankful for in your life.  Since I am again using the sketch from this week, and in the spirit of Thanksgiving here is my list.

5 Things I am Thankful for –

1.  My Family.  Colin and Evan bring joy to each day.  You never know what they are going to do or say, but I can guarantee that they will make me laugh out loud at some point during a 24 hour period. 

2. Our health.  Sometimes Evan likes to lead us on a rocky path, but I am glad that each year his immune system seems to improve. 

3. Friends.  I am thankful for friends in my life, both people I know in person and those of you I have met through the Internet.  Whether it was kids or paper crafting that brought us together I am thankful for everyone I have met through the years.

4. Home. I am thankful that we have a roof over our heads, food in the fridge and that we don’t struggle on a daily basis just to have our needs me.

5. Teachers.  I am thankful for the adults who welcome my children into their lives and nurture them.  Every morning Colin is so eager to go to school and learn.  I am so happy that he has such a great start in his long journey of learning.

Now onto the card.  This is a Pop up gift card holder and it was the Technique Challenge on Monday on SCS.  The thread can be found here.  There are directions, a link to a video tutorial and everything you need to know to make one of these for yourself.   As I mentioned I once again used the sketch from 2 Sketches for You.  I paired it up with the technique and chose the color scheme from the Frosty Days designer series paper.  I again used the Country Living Holiday collection stamp set. 

You may be wondering how this can be used as a gift tag.  All you need to do is punch a hole in the corner and add a ribbon like I did on my 3 X 3 gift card I made on Monday.  I had forgotten to do that before I took my photograph, but if you look at this post, you will know what I mean. 

Again, have a wonderful Thanksgiving, or just enjoy a day with someone you are thankful for or doing something you love to do.
