So Very Thankful

I have SO much for which I need to be grateful and thankful.  My family is one of my greatest blessings, and I am truly thankful for family.  My dear Mother-in-Law is visiting right now, and we're making cards and memories.  I am thankful for her, and for my late Father-in-Law, because without them, I would not have the wonderful husband I have, or the children/family God has given me.  I am so thankful for my family.

I am entering this card in three challenges. - Card Sketch - Simon Says Thanksgiving & Thanks - Gratitude - A Real Sweetie
This second card is being entered in the challenge at Anything Goes - their challenges are always so much fun, and their Deisgn Team Members actually stop by to say hello (which I enjoy SO much).
Another thing I am truly grateful and thankful for - comments. - Embellishment Bingo (Baker's Twine, Die Cuts, Lace)

I am also very grateful and thankful for my blog friends and followers.  Thanks so much for being a part of my life, and for allowing me to have a peek inside your lives as you create and share your work.  You are all such a blessing and encouragement to me.  I am so thankful.
