So Very Thankful

November is almost upon us...the month of Thanksgiving.  I think Thanksgiving is so easily overlooked with Christmas always right on it's heels.  Thankful is something I am each and every day, most often countless times a day, and always as I'm laying my head on my pillow at night...a time when I know that I have made it through another day...being real...not sad, just real.  God, family, friends, love, joy, happiness, health, provision, blessings, life, YOU, to name a few, I have so much to be thankful for!  Life can be tough, but I think being thankful makes my life happy!
I've used something old and somethings new to make a card expressing thankful...
I've used the pretty  Simon Says Stamp Summer Flowers stamp/die set, released some time ago, to make a sunflower...I think this sunflower image is SO pretty!!  Sunflowers are my mom's favorite flower and my daughter got married at the beginning of September, so sunflowers are not only special, but mean Fall to me.  I stamped, die cut and colored the flower and stem with leaves.  I layered them and added the Thankful die along with a sentiment, both from the new CZ Design Fall stamps/dies, the sentiment from 30 Days of Thankful stamp/die set.  The background is the new Lined Circles stencil from Simon's latest release, Fun and Festive.  Here's a close up of the flower...
...and another close up of the layered die cut sentiment...
So very thankful for so much...so thankful for you visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
