THANK YOU friends, for stopping by tonight! :) I have so many things to be grateful for--I won't go into details, but I did want to do 5 of them in this post just to put them out there. Then I'll show you my card... :)

1. MY HUSBAND--he is my everything! He is my rock, he is my best friend, he is ALWAYS there for me. I am so incredibly lucky to have him--I cannot imagine my life without him!!!
2. MY PUPPY--oh my! I don't even know where I'd be without her! She makes infertility seem like a bump in my road. She is the sweetest thing to come home to!
3. MY HEALTH/MODERN TECHNOLOGY--I'm so grateful for the regularity that Metformin has brought to my PCOS filled life. SO much better! Anyone who knows what I'm talking about probably agrees!
4. MY BLOG FRIENDS--you truly lift me up and bring joy to my life!!! When I feel like there is nobody out there who cares, I can turn on my computer, log in to Blogger, and I immediately get positive feedback that I MATTER. And you'll never know how much I appreciate that!
5. MY FAITH--I am so blessed to be able to have the Lord, Jesus Christ, as my personal Savior. I am nothing without Him!

Okay, so there are my 5 for today--I HAD to post them!!! Now, why am I giving thanks? Well, yes, Thanksgiving is coming up, but I also found a new challenge that I would like to participate in--Creative Card Crew! This weeks challenge is THANKFUL. :) I am also submitting this to Truly Scrumptious--BINGO challenge. I chose embossing, buttons, and ribbon. :)

Here's my card~

And a close up of my dry embossed panel~

What do ya think?! I LOVE it! I had something totally different in my head, but I like this better! My version had a very toned down color scheme, but I like these vibrant colors better. I hope you've been inspired to join us at these challenges--the more the merrier! Merry stamping! :)

Really beautiful card. Love the color choice and the embossed dots. I'll make a note of that ;-) I relate to what you say about the puppy. My baby is a 14 week Main Coon kitten. Thank you for your kind comment on my blog and thanks for playing with at at Creative Card Crew.
