thankful for you 43

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, November 23, 2011 @ 11:27 PM | ,

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate ~ I hope you have a wonderful holiday and hopefully get to spend time with your loved ones, enjoying a yummy meal! Scott and I will be serving up dinner for my sweet sister Tina, my DS, Jerry and his sweet GF, April. I am so blessed to have such a loving family and I have many things to be grateful for. Without rambling on, I simply wanted to say I am also thankful for all of you who take the time to visit my little spot here in blogosphere :)

I am the first to admit, creating masculine cards is not my specialty but I needed to make a Thanksgiving Day card for Scott. (although he does appreciate beautiful flowers and bows! ;)
The pretty patterned paper is from the NEW Digital Pink Paislee Family Matters Paper Pack which is available in digital format only and exclusively sold at JessicaSprague.com. I've never used a lot of digital paper and had no idea what I had been missing! I combined images from four different PTI stamp sets ~ two of which I've admittedly never used before.

For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current Freshly Made Sketch challenge:
That's it for today ~  thanks so much for looking and I hope you enjoy your day :) Be Sweet!

It is perfect for Scott. I know he will love it now matter how "pretty" it is. I would have never known that was digital. I know you just told me, and I was just looking at this thinking "what pretty paper" and well, it is that digital paper. I will have to look it up for sure.
