Thanksgiving Blessings

Happy Tuesday! I have a meeting tomorrow to finalize plans for our office move. It's been put off so many times that I almost won't believe it until it really happens. I'll be sad to leave my co-workers in the Registrar's Office and I will miss them, but it's onward to a new department and new co-workers.
My card tonight is one of thankfulness. I have much to be thankful for this year. The Lord is good. I hope He will hold those on the east coast in his hands as they face yet another big storm.


The red base is a textured card stock and the white background is Cryogen White card stock from Paper Temptress. It has a lovely glittery sheen that I wasn't able to capture in the photos I took. The sentiment and leaf images are from one of the new Doodle Pantry set called Lively Leaves. I used sponges and several colors of ink to color the leaves and background. I added the red and white twine as an embellishment.

I'm entering these challenges:

Thanks a bunch for visiting today. Hope you make it an amazing Wednesday. My prayers are with all those on the east coast recovering or watching for a storm. Be safe!

Hugs,

Donna
