Simons Says, "Tag. . . . .You're It"

Hello, everyone, and welcome back to my little blog.  Today is Thanksgiving, and I know that I have SO much for which to be thankful.  I hope that today is a day when each of you, regardless of where you live, will take the time to thank God for the many blessings in your life.  I realize that everything I have is a blessing from God, and I really try not to ever take even the smallest detail for granted.  He has given us SO much, and we can never thank Him enough.  The greatest gift He ever gave us is not a material possession, but rather, the opportunity to receive eternal life in Heaven because of what He did for us when He became flesh, came to this earth, lived a perfect life, and suffered, died, and rose again, all to pay the debt for our sins.  Now, THAT'S something to be grateful for, and I am SO thankful for my salvation.  I am also thankful for my family, friends, church. . . . . . oh, the list never ends.  And, I am thankful for each of you.

As I do every week, I am entering the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Blog.  You can read all about their new "Tag, You're It" Challenge by clicking on this link:

I used a Melissa Frances envelope and tag.  I decorated it with Making Memories patterned paper, machine stitching, Prima lace, hand-made scrunched seam binding, a Crafty Secrets tag, MM holly and berries, and a few other little touches.  I am thinking that the tag can be tucked inside and used for a gift card.  This will also be sold at my upcoming boutique.

Here's a wish that each and every one of you has a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving.  And don't forget to take that extra moment to thank God for all the wonderful blessings in your life.

Hugs,

Karen
