This is certainly a busy time of year for all but it remains one of my favorite times of the year as we celebrate the changing seasons, prepare for the fun of Halloween, the gathering of Thanks Giving and finally the celebration of Christmas.
Thankful for You! is today's card which features paper, ink, and embellishments beautifully coordinating from Fun Stampers Journey. I used the Dear Rose Stamp set (also available with coordinating dies in a bundle), as well as the lovely sentiment from the Happy Sentiment stamp set.
