Thankful!

This week I have had four different projects going on and someday I will be organized enough to work on one thing at a time!  What happens is that I get an idea for one and go to it, before I have finished with the previous!  Oh well, I don't think that will change and that is OK!  This is my take on Tim's 12 Tags of 2012 - NOVEMBER and I am also linking this to the Inspiration Journal's, THANKFUL
For the tag image, I used the flower branches from Tim's Spring Sprung stamp set.  Since I do not have the stamps Tim used, for the sentiment on the side, I used his embossing folder and kind of did my own diffuser system to just have "Blessings."  The beautiful leaves were gifted to me by my sweet friend, Vada.  I thought these were just perfect for the corner.  I did cut the acorns and branches from the Sizzlits strip and these were covered with Rock Candy Crackle (after inking) or clear embossing powder.  The back panel was inked, embossed and then highlighted.

Well there are many blessings in our lives to be thankful for and this "Thanksgiving," I am going to start counting those blessings.  I am thankful for all of you who take the time to stop by and commit, as the comments really lift my spirit!  Thank you!

Gorgeous work and great sentiment. We really do need to take time to count our blessings and not focus on what hasn't gone to plan. The encouragement that comes to us through our artistic efforts is a definite one to be treasured!

How lovely to put your incredible tag with the gorgeous background on your card. Such beautiful colors and details, Terry.

Krisha said...

THAT is a great tag all by itself, but adding it to a card really makes it stand out. Blessing need to be counted more often than we do, I 've really been thinking about that lately too.
