Gather a Harvest of Love

Today I have a sweet little 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch card to show you for American Thanksgiving and the Sketch Challenge today at Splitcoaststampers.


I've colored up this beautiful bevy of fruit and veggies from There She Goes Bountiful Blessings Set , with some rich autumn colors with Copic Markers.  I've sponged the edges with Ranger Distress Rusty Hinge.  The designer paper is from Basic Grey Indian Summer.  


We have so much to be thankful for.... I really want to be a person who doesn't take that for granted.  My Dad is home from the hospital with some new medications that seem to be taking care of his heart, and he won't need a pacemaker yet.  Our kids are healthy and full of life.  Just yesterday we had Parent Teacher conferences for our sons and both teachers talked about their character, leadership and what a positive addition they are to the class.  What more could a parent want?  I am blessed with love all around me, and especially a husband that is the best friend I could ever have.  This year American Thanksgiving is also his birthday ...so I can be doubly thankful.

Have a great day friends!
