Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #39 - Thankful

This week at Sassy Cheryl's we are celebrating Thanksgiving by being Thankful. It is the perfect time to reflect and remember all the things that mean the most to us. I have so much to be thankful for. I have a loving family, a place to live, a job, food on my table...(and the list goes on).
It seems that more and more people I know are having to part with their loved ones who are going off to serve their Country. I wanted to let those people know that I am thankful for them also. God Bless You!

I used Cheryl's "Liberty Bear" for my card today. Her Americana images are fantastic! My fellow crafter/cardmaker friend Lisa made me several colors of seam binding ribbon and I love it. I chose the red, thanks Lisa! The sentiment is from TLC Creations. Come join in the challenge and let us know what you're thankful for.

Not only is Cheryl giving away the usual gift certificate to her store, there is a chance to win this beautiful ceramic platter with one of Cheryl's adorable snowmen. Sure wish I was eligable. Lol

Paper: Creative Imaginations-star, Creative Memories-blue, AC Heavy Cardstock-white

Accessories: Cuttle Bug-Stars embossing folder, TLC Creations-sentiment, Lisa Murphy-Seam binding ribbon, Dress it Up-Star button

Oh my gosh Jeni this card is perfect. Every week I keep thinking this is my favorite yet, but you keep topping yourself.

Happy Anniversary to you and Steve (that romantic little enabler). The kids can have a sleep over at my house this weekend and you and Steve can celebrate.
