Meljen's DT Day - I'm Thankful For ...

Thankful!!  Thankful!!  Thankful!!  Thankful!!  Thankful!!

I am thankful for so much every day! I'm thankful for the good Lord and all that he sacrificed for me. He is always there for me; always there for all of us! What a blessing!

I'm thankful for my wonderful family, my fiance Kevin and my three children. I have been so blessed. Three wonderful kids.. Taylor in college and doing so well - I'm so proud of her! Michael is a great boy.. he is kind and bright and we are working on him to get him more involved in things. Bailey .. she is bright and joyful. She jumps right into everything. And Kevin... He is my best friend! I can't wait to get him back home. I'm so thankful that I have him in my life.

I'm thankful for the great job that I go to each day and I am thankful I can support us all. I am thankful for being able to put a roof over our head and food on our table. My bosses are supportive and good to me. They are so flexible and allow me to have the schedule I need for my family. It has been great to be there and to work for all of them.

I'm thankful for loving friends.. especially my best friend Jia even though she is so far away now. She moved to Ohio, but I know she is always there for me when I need her. I can always count on Jia for anything.

I'm thankful for finding the church that we go to and being able to give back to them by giving my time to help in ways that I am able. It has been such a blessing to find the right church without having to search. They have been wonderful and getting more involved has been wonderful. I love being able to give back and I love being able to show and involve my kids so that they know how important it is.

I am thankful for the four wonderful Design Teams that I have been able to join and all of the wonderful crafters that I have met. Wow!! You all are so wonderful! How did I get so lucky?? So Thank You!! Thank you ALL!! You make my days brighter!

 Here is my card:

I used Meljen's Designs image - Teddy Pilgrims and Harvest Cornucopia. I used Copic on the pilgrims and my Prismacolor pencils on the Cornucopia. The papers are Reminisce - Autumn Harvest and Bo Bunny - Apple Cider. I also used Bo Bunny brads, Thickers and the burlap or whatever it is LOL. The base of the card is Bazzill Cardstock. I also stitched around the edge of the dotted paper.
