By lovely coincidence, Karen's Card Shop is running low on thank-you cards, so this Thanksgiving week, I'll be sharing a bunch of thank-you cards I've made for the shop. There's quite a variety of looks to this particular batch of creativity.
Today's card looks very wintery and uses one of my favorite color combinations: gray and red.
The trees come from Papertrey's classic set Through the Trees. The stamp has three trees (the three on the right of the card). My panel needed an extra tree, so I stamped the far right one again on the left. The two red birds are looking at each other and form a visual triangle of red with the sentiment.
The matting is simple white-on-white.
I hope all the Americans reading my blog are happily gearing up for Thanksgiving on Thursday. We are having a low-key but festive day ourselves.
Blessings to all of you, and I encourage those who live in countries that don't have formal thanksgiving celebrations to take this week to think of things you are grateful for and thank whatever greater power you believe in for your blessings. There is always, always, always something to be grateful for.
Feel free to share what you're grateful for today in the comments. Today, I am grateful for my church family and the warm community in Christ we have!
Mercy, grace, peace, love, and gratitude,
