I AM BACK and thankful for so much!

Yes, I am still alive!  I know some of you thought I dropped off the face of the earth, but NO!  I am still here!  I began a new business a couple of months ago and it has just sky-rocketed!  So, I guess you could say I have been a bit busy and crafting had to take a back seat for a bit! I sure do miss crafting more often, but I do love my new business!

But I did find some time today to craft a cute little card that I am going to send to my in-laws tomorrow. We won't be visiting them this year for Thanksgiving, but will be thinking of them!  So, thought I would send this along to let them know!

I used the pre-colored Pumpkin Pie Slice digi by Meljen's Designs and BOY do those pre-colored images save you time when card-making! HEEHEE!  I used some papers by Basic Grey, cardstock, twine and buttons by Stampin' Up! and a stamp from them, as well! They all worked so well together didn't they!?  I hope my in-laws know we wish we could be two places at once, but will enjoy Christmas with them soon!

I am so thankful to have found a career that suits me so well and that I am excited to do every single day!  I am thankful to have a husband that supports my business and loves taking care of the kids when I am out doing my Scentsy thing!  I am thankful that I have terrific friends and family who have supported me in beginning my business, too!  Without them, I wouldn't be walking across stage at convention next year!  I am so thankful to have Melissa Jenkins and Meljen's Designs as a part of my life, too!  Melissa has become such a wonderful, close friend to me, almost like a sister!  And I can't imagine my life without her in it!  Sharing a piece of her life with her through Meljen's Designs has been such a blessing and am so grateful that she has let me go along for the ride with her! Seeing her business flourish over the past two years has been so exciting!! 

But, mostly I must give credit where credit is due.  I am grateful to my Lord, Jesus Christ, for helping me grow into the person I am today.  These past 40 years have NOT been uneventful and without strife.  But because of Him, I am here to enjoy my life with four beautiful children, a supportive husband, and great family and friends!  What else does a girl need? 

I hope your Thanksgiving weekend blesses you with wonderful memories, no matter who you spend it with!  Thank YOU, too, for following along with me on my paper-crafting blog and I hope to post again WAY SOONER than later! 

Happy Thanksgiving!
