Thankful for you and a Card

Yes.. you read the title right.. I made a card.. ugh! Not my thing at all!

But first! One of the challenges at the My Mind's Eye blog this month is to create about something you are grateful for! I chose these two photos of myself with my grandmothers from last Thanksgiving. I sure am grateful and thankful for these two beautiful ladies. They both have battled and fought cancer and I am so glad they are here with me today.

I used mostly the Follow Your Heart MME lines. There are only a few things on this page that is not MME -- the "Thankful" (Elle's Studio), twine, butterflies (Studio Calico), and the "family" pennant (OA). I think I did well!


Up next is the card (ugh) that I made for the blog hop going on right now at ScrapFit. The challenge was to use the color inspiration they provided and turn it into a card! If you know me... I HATE making cards. I don't know why..there is just something about it! But! I wanted to be entered for the prize AND I need a card for my niece's baptism this weekend! 


Instead of the burlap, I just used the kraft paper and then added browns, greens, and yellows! Good enough for a baptism card, right? :) She is my niece..so it can be. :) TFL!
