Card for Joan's Gardens #24 Weekly Challenge


Can you believe one week from today is Thanksgiving!  Where has this year gone?
I have so much to thank our Heavenly Father for that I could fill up a book.  How about you?
Please leave me a comment and tell me about your blessings!

You gals kept me so busy yesterday (another blessing) that I didn't get started on my card until about 8:00 PM last night, so I am running late this morning. 

I am so in love with Tim Hotlz Mover and Shaper's Words that I just had to use it on this week's card.  First, I cut out the pumpkin using Spellbinders Nesties and accented it with Cooper Perfect Pearls.  Then I placed Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers Base Tray on top of my A plate, laid down my card stock with the Joy die on top plus 2 B Plates and 2 shims.  Then I ran it through the Cuttlebug and it worked like a charm.  Just think of the endless possibilities  with these words!  So far, they come in Joy, Wish, Hope and Love.  I have all in stock.

One of my customers had me order this gorgeous Vine Martha Stewart Punch and when I saw it I just had to have one. (know that feeling?).  I know I will get lots of use out of it.

JustRite has a wonderful set of Thanksgiving sentiments and borders that was perfect for what I needed to finish off the card.

By the way, there will not be a Challenge next week since Thanksgiving is a busy time for all of us.  This will give you (and me) plenty of time to prepare for the big #25 challenge which will make you eligible for the grand prize by Heartfelt Creations.

Your card is so pretty and I love how you cut the word into the pumpkin for such a great look! We're all blessed in many ways, in spite of life's challenges, so I'm grateful for everything and everyone in my life! Happy Thanksgiving!

A wonderful card Joan! You are indeed blessed! My greatest blessings are my sons. I'm so undeserving and yet God blessed me with two sons that fill my heart with joy!

Gorgeous card, Joan, in wonderful all colors! I too have much to be thankful for. My family has been fairly healthy this year. I have three wonderful kids. Two of them now have jobs and I am hoping that the good Lord will give the third one a job too when he graduates in May from college. I have a wonderful husband who is very loving and supportive. And I have my crafts which give me pleasure and friends like you to support me in that arena! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I am grateful for so much. The main thing that comes to mind is my brother-in-law who donated a kidney to my husband so he could live. It has been eight years and although he has had many health issues because of the side effects of the drugs, we have had eight years together that we would have never had otherwise. God has blessed me in so many ways, not in the material way, but in the ways that really count. I hope each of you are blessed. Happy Thanksgiving!

Joan,
Love those words and that punch. I'm thankful my husband has a job. last year at this time I thought we would be losing our home. I'm thankful for all the friends I've made on line with my crafting.

I love the pumpkin/word, it looks wonderful.

I am grateful that our house in Ohio rented and we can enjoy our time in Florida.
