So Thankful for You

Blends blog hop

We are coming into the Thankful or Give Thanks season.  Why we don’t exemplify this thought throughout the year has puzzled me.  Personally, I am thankful all year that I live & breathe and have my family & friends with me.   I try to reflect that as I go throughout the year by telling my family & friends how much I appreciate them with my words and my actions.  I try to send out cards, although not always on time!  For some reason, a special occasion comes along and I don’t have just the right card even though I make tons of cards.  Getting creative real fast is pretty easy with Pinterest for inspiration.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Francine Wilson or may have come from the person previous to me on the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

For this post, I am presenting my fall So Thankful for You card.  I used my retired smokey slate blendability to add shadow since I don’t have a full set of the stampin’ blends yet.  Still working on my blending skills, but I think this turned out well.  The color lifter works wonderfully to give a lighter effect and mute the colors.
