Bloggers Challenge meets TJ Blogstravaganza- Give Thanks

What better challenge for the Bloggers Challenge this week - our theme is Giving Thanks. With the holidays approaching, I'd like to take time before the busy season to give thanks - thank you for stopping by and reading my blog and leaving me your comments! I have so much to be thankful for: a wonderful family, good friends, great customers and a very fun job!


In keeping with the TJ Blogstravaganza - I decided to create a Holiday Thank You Card. For my card, I used the Home for the Holidays and Boards & Beams from PaperTrey Ink and paper-pieced my house image using papers from the Christmas Magic Collection. Some simple coloring with markers to fill in the area where I didn't add DSP. To give my fence, trees and windows a little bling, I used my Spica Glitter Pens.

Details:
Stamps - PaperTrey - Home for the Holiday's, Boards & Beams
Ink - Black, Spica Glitter Pens, Markers
Card Stock - Mellow Moss, Burgundy, Christmas Magic Collection DSP, Watercolor
Other - Organdy Ribbon
Be sure to stop by Pat's Blog to see the TJ Blogstravaganza projects for today!
