Lovely Tea

Hello Everyone,

For today I am writing on behalf of Make My Monday challenge blog. It is the beginning of a new week and the start of a new challenge!! For this week the theme is 'many thanks'. Here is my inspiration card. Enjoy!

This image and background paper was graciously given to me
by my friend Monika from Creative with Monika.
Check out her new shop on Etsy.
She has some pretty fantastic images.
Lots of dimension without being too busy.
Having tea with a friend to say thank you for all they do

Many Thanks

It really is shame that my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving, is smashed between Halloween and well.... Christmas. Here in the U.S.A. we celebrate this grand holiday the third Thursday of November. It is a time to eat, enjoy each others company, and mostly to be thankful for all the blessings we have in life. Sadly, Thanksgiving gets overlooked by the hub-bub of Christmas. I think this card should remind me to stop and be thankful for all the good in my life. There are too many blessings to count and for that am thankful.

Entering Challenge:

I hope to see you at Make My Monday and make a card for someone you feel needs a bit of thanks; and don't forget to link up we would be ever so grateful!! Take care all and don't forget to leave a comment. You know I appreciate them. Thanks so much for stopping by and we will see you soon.

All the best,
