Happy Thanksgiving and some blog candy!

Today here in Canada it's Thanksgiving!  Happy Thanksgiving!  (don't miss reading to end of this post I have some blog candy!) We are enjoying this long weekend very much with some relaxing time at home!  Last night we had a great big fun family dinner with my husband's family.  It was also a great night as our city had it's first NHL game in 15 years!  We lost our team back than and just got it back!  Sadly they lost but still played a good game and it's our team again!  My hubby is one of the really lucky ones who got season tickets (with friends) they sold out in 3 minutes!

I have a card that I made for my hubby's parents to share, I can't seem to get enough of playing with these rich fall colors!

I stamped the leaves as if they were flying around, we had a very very windy day here (the kid that tress fall over!) made me think of it!  Embossed the sentiment (so happy to have a Happy Thanksgiving sentiment finally) in chestnut and added some twine and a button, there you go!  Oh and remembered how much fun it is to distress the edges!

Products used:  Delicate Leaf clusters, old Letter writing, celebrate everyday and button by Hero Arts, Spiced Marmalade, Vintage Photo, Barn Door, Wild Honey Distress Inks by Tim Holtz, Versamark, Chestnut zing Embossing powder, twine by the Twinery!

Thanksgiving is a time to think of what you are thankful for (not that I don't more often than that!)  I really am blessed in the small and the big.  Trying to live each day being thankful is a goal of mine and one that I think leads to happiness.  I wanted to thank you for being my crafty friend.  For taking the time to read my blog and for always leaving me kind encouraging comments!!  What better way to say thank you than to offer up some blog candy?
