This week at  Stampin’ Sisters in Christ the challenge is to make a Thanksgiving card.  Well I can do that!  There is so much in my life to be thankful for.  A few years ago I read a blog post in which the author expressed her “Joy of Laundry”.  I thought it was so touching.  She realized how ” rich I really am and I am thankful. I feel guilty for the decadence of normal and the sweet indulgence of doing laundry.”  Here is Janice’s entire post.  It is a wonderful heartfelt post, and helped me to realize, too, how blessed I am just for “normal”.

I hope that everyone has a joyous day.




Stamps:  Gifts of the Earth, Teeny Tiny Wishes and IBB

Papers: Designer Paper from Flair Designs “Mum’s the Word”; Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip

Inks: Memento “Tuxedo Black”; Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Certainly Celery and Barely Banana; Copics

Accessories: Cuttlebug and “Textile” Embossing Folder; Satin Ribbon; Corduroy Button; Bow Easy
