KLM Designs - Thanks

Only 2 days left until Thanksgiving. I am especially looking forward to this year's family gathering because I will be able to visit with some aunt's, uncle's and cousins that I haven't seen in ages. I hope all my US friends have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.

For my KLM Designs DT post this week, I thought I would make a "Thank You" card using the Birdhouse Globe image. This time of year I never seem to have enough thank you cards on hand.

Using some of the left over scraps, I also decorated the inside of the card. I like this paper too much to throw any of it out!

Don't forget that the Sentimental Sundays challenge this week is "Thoroughly Thankful ". Please stop by and enter your Thank You or Thanksgiving card in our challenge.

Thank you for stopping by!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
