We've got a bunch of fun stuff to talk about today, but first of all,

Happy Thanksgiving!

It's Thanksgiving Day in the U.S.  Which means some of us will be doing our card-making while we watch the parade (or maybe the football game) on TV :-)  I know I have so much to be thankful for, but one HUGE thing this year is that my brother arrived safely back to the states from Afghanistan last week-- He's still in California for a couple more weeks, but we're looking forward to having him here at home for Christmas! Yayyy!!

And now, on to the main event...

If you're just now joining us, go ahead and click on the link above to go back to the beginning.  It will take you to the 365 Cards blog where you can get the details on how to navigate through this week-long blog hop and find out all the ways you can be entered to win some fabulous Graphic 45 prizes (brought to you by our very own DT member, Gloria!).

If you've already been hopping along with us, your last stop should have been Kim's blog.

Now finally, here's my card for today:


The challenge for today, and your ninth "ingredient" for the recipe challenge on Saturday, is: A dimensional sticker.  On my card, I used the clock sticker by Jolee's.  I've had it forever.  It was nice to finally have a reason to use it :-) I really love the look of vintage-style cards, but it's always so hard for me to do!! I tend to take a "less is more" approach to my cards.  Vintage is kinda like... "more is better." Ha ha. It's been so much fun looking at what you guys have come up with so far this week.  Can't wait to see what you do for today's challenge!

One more way to earn another chance for one of the awesome prizes is by commenting on this post.  But since it's Thanksgiving and all, I'm going to make it a little more specific... Leave a comment below answering this question:
What are you thankful for?
It doesn't have to be a sappy answer :-)  I'll take cute, funny and clever, too! Haha. Tomorrow, whenever you come out of your food coma, come back and check out your next stop on the hop:

I have so many things to be thankful!
But a month ago my youngest daughter passed thank God and the wonderful doctors who took care of sepsis with adrenal crisis.
For that I thank you for those unconditional friends filled our mailbox with cards for my girl, full of good intentions.
For the great support of our family at this difficult time and to convey those feelings through the scrap!

This year I am thankful for the root canal I had a couple of weeks ago - I didn't realize how sick that tooth had been making me.

And of course, my wonderful little family!

PaulaM said...

Wonderful Card - love the addition of the clock - that fits in with the vintage I think.
I am SO thankful for friends that have taken us into their home and housed us while we wait to close on our home - a childless couple that has put up with not only my hubby and me, but my four teenage kids! THEY are awesome and I am so Thankful that God brought us together in such a unique way.

Laura said...

Cool sticker!!! I tend to have the same "card" approach as you do :) but I am definitely having fun with vintage this week :).I am really happy your brother came back :) wonderful news!!

I am thankful for my family and their health and their love and support and for my "on-the-way" baby that gives me new surprises every day and makes me stronger to overcome everyday problems and to forget the long-distance relationship between me and my husband. And I am thankful for the unconditional love I share with him every time we are faced with a situation like this.


Hugs,
Laura
