It is Thanksgiving this weekend so I thought it would be appropriate to post a thank you card today. Also, I have to tell you what I am thankful for...my great hubby Karl, my loving family, my amazing friends (and I am lucky to have several), my home, my garden, and my healthy body. I'm also thankful that you have stopped by my blog today!

Today's card is for the Splitcoast Stampers Hope You Can Cling To - Some kinda hope Challenge. The challenge was to use something old and something new. The patterned paper is old and the buttons are new. This is also for Curtain Call Act 50 and 2 Sketches 4 You Bonus Sketch (from Stacey who is also the host of the Curtain Call).

If you don't know about it, Splitcoast Stampers is hosting the Hope You Can Cling To challenges during the month of October. You can win prizes as well as donate all of the cards you made to their card drive for UT MD Anderson Cancer Center. I made a whole bunch yesterday and will be uploading them to my SCS gallery so check it out if you are interested to see what I've been up to.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I really appreciate everyone to stops by my blog, even if they don't comment. Have a great Thanksgiving. Hope you are able to spend it with someone special.
