O Give Thanks!
Do you decorate for the holidays? With Thanksgiving nearing, our home is currently decked out with scarecrows, turkeys, candles, pilgrims, and of course, lots of leafy creations. I do love getting in the spirit of the season, whatever the season might be! That said, I do try to also keep the meaning behind the holidays in perspective. Thanksgiving isn't just a day for fun decorations, or great food for that matter -- it's a day to give thanks for all the many blessings given to us throughout the year. My card today, made with the "Autumn Blessings" set, celebrates both. I printed the wreath image at about one-and-a-half times its normal size (one of the great things about digis -- the ability to resize them!), and then colored it with Copic markers, and fussy cut it. I have to tell you that my hands were shaking by the time I finished all the cutting (arthritis fun!), but it was so worth it! This lovely Scripture verse accent is from the same set. Now if only I could find a pretty wreath like this for my door! :-)
