Happy Thanksgiving 2012

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day here in the States, so I just want you to know how grateful I am for the wonderful friends I've made in the paper craft blog community and the inspiration each of you bring to me.  I've been given many blessings in my life and want you to know that I count you among them.

I meant to share this card last weekend, but time got away from me.  I had to work extra hours, broke a tooth, attended a nephew's birthday dinner, and went to see Breaking Dawn Part 2 (yes, I know I may be a bit old for that but how I loved those books and the movies).  Anyway, I made this card for my sweet friend Audrey's birthday which also happens to fall on Thanksgiving Day this year.

I made the card from scraps of paper I had in my stash.  The butterfly is from Recollections.  I spritzed the Prima flower petals with several shades of Glimmer Mist and added a crocheted flower and fabric brad to the center of the flower.  I attached it to a Recollections tag that I stamped and wrapped a bit of Recollections lace around the bottom.  A couple of buttons and twill were tied to the top of the tag.  The leaves are Prima, doily is Wilton, and the brown pearls are also from Recollections.  I used a Martha Stewart lace punch on the strip of paper across the card. 

That's it for me tonight.  Need to finish a few things tonight in preparation for tomorrow.  Again, I wish a wonderful holiday to all those celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow as well as a great upcoming weekend to all.  Thanks so much for stopping by and for your sweet comments!  Happy Birthday, Audrey!
