Thank You for Funday Friday

Good Morning :) As we are getting closer to Thanksgiving we start to reflect on what we are thankful for. As I am thankful to God and my Family, I'm also thankful for enjoying such a wonderful hobby in papercrafting. I've met so many wonderful friends along the way, some in person and most on the internet. This hobby has drawn out the creative side of me one that I enjoyed as a kid and was so glad to the friends that turn me to it again. There is joy in this hobby, remembering old memories, creating new memories, sending beautiful messages in the mail and to talk to people that get you! Thank you to all my blogger friends, thank you to all my Design team owners and DT sisters, thank you to all the scrapbook challenge blogs to keep my creative artistic self challenged and to the many of the crafty groups I belong to on facebook and yahoo for you are the ones that motivate me, challenge me and encourage me.
Today's Funday Friday over at Jo's Scrap Shack and this week's theme is "Gratitude" Our sponsors are Bugaboo and Little Blue Button Stamps:
 I made a clean and simple card this week, letting the digi stamp take center stage on the card, such a pretty stamp from Bugaboo: Make it Snappy - Beauty of nature
 Make it Snappy - Beauty of nature
For our Scrappin N Chattin yahoo group card challenge this week we were to use a card for inspiration. That card inspired me to give this card a window frame look and this digi stamp was perfect for that with the outside scene. I did my first hand at water-coloring the card (haven't done any water-coloring since I was a kid :) it was very fun to do.
 I found the sentiment cut in my swap cuts, it was done with the cricut imagine. Thank you for stopping by today :) I hope to see your creation soon linked up at Jo's Scrap Shack

  1. I'm glad blogging and scrap booking brought us together, friend!!

  2. Tina this is such a beautiful card! I love the image and the message.... and to be honest, I am very grateful for you as well my friend! It is extremely hard to connect with people who don't get you or your passion about your hobby... so I agree with you that having internet friends that are into the same hobby and that really get you, are a huge blessing and definitely something to be grateful for. You have been an amazing friend to me for the last 2+ years.... and it has been my pleasure getting to you and learning about your life and love through your scrapbooking pages and conversations. Happy Thanksgiving to you and the family my friend.

  3. A wonderful card!! I love this wonderful post!!
    Have a blessed day,
