A Thanksgiving Prayer

Thanksgiving is going to be wonderful this year! My parents (living in WA) suprised us with plane tickets! Yes, all 4 of us will be able to go back and celebrate Thanksgiving with MY extended family for the first time since I've been married! It will be so awesome to have my boys (including my hubby!) with me as I celebrate with my grandma, grandpa, and all the great aunts/uncles, cousins, ect! Many of them haven't ever met my husband or the boys, so it will be a great time! And we are going out early enough to be at my grandma and grandpa's 60th wedding anniversary! Isn't that so awesome! We were so touched by the generosity of my parents.

My card today is the first of my many to come Thanksgiving cards and features one of my favorite sentiments for Thanksgiving...

This sentiment is by Paper Makeup Stamps as part of the Grateful Thanks set and is a must-have for this time of year. I used the sketch for this week over at Skipping Stones Design Blog. It was simple and perfect for showcasing this gorgeous sentiment. I pulled some of my new fall paper and was tickled to find it coordinated beautifully with Stampin' Up colors. I KNEW I should have snagged more than just 2 measly sheets of it...sigh. You would think I would have learned my lesson by now, but no. LOL!
