I love to think of nature
as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.

Thankful









A time to be thankful!  Thankful for time to make cards to send to family and friends.  Thankful for the family and friends.  A very simple sketch to bring out the warmth and gratitude of the season.  I was 3/4 done with this card when I realized I didn't use any stamps!  Both patterned papers are from K and Company on textured orange and plain brown cardstock.  I had all of these little leaf embellishments and one thing led to another and they wound up as the feathers on the turkey.  I found the cute metal alphabet stickers at Ollie's, a discount store here similar to Big Lots (only a lot more disheveled).  Prices are great.  I got a pack of those alphabet letters for $1.29.  The pumpkins are a Sizzix die and I wrapped embroidery thread around them and the corners of the frame.  The leaf buttons are another cute find at Jo Ann's, tied with the same thread and atop green grosgrain ribbon.
