gratitude day 8

Today’s gratitude: PBS and no commercials. We watched another network for one show and the advertisements were obnoxious. And they made the little man that way too. He wanted everything that flashed on the screen. So today, I am thankful for quality television shows that don’t have toy advertisements.

On a side note, we did start Christmas shopping for the little man and I am thankful for my creative hubby who cleverly hid our covert shopping purchases. :) It was fun! Up until now, the little man hasn’t really paid attention, or noticed. But this year he is getting wise to the games. Isn’t this what parenting is all about?!?! :)

Moxie Fab World had a great challenge called, Diggin’ on Damask. I love damask images. Love. Love. Love. Almost as much as I love kraft cardstock. Yep, its that much. :)

I started this card by stamping the damask image in black ink onto wood paper. Love the contrast of the rustic wood and elegant damask. Then I sprayed over the entire piece with Glimmer Mist. It made the ink bleed a bit. But, I thought it looked like old fabric, soft and worn. The wood grain also still stands out.

The card has been sitting and waiting and waiting to be finished. I just couldn’t cover up the unique background with ribbon or lace, or another shape. Then I saw this rub on in my stash. Perfect. And finished just in time for the deadline. :) Be sure and check out all the fun and trendy challenges, including eye candy at Moxie Fab World.

What are you thankful for today? And where is your best toy-hiding location? thanks for stopping by!

I am thankful for my community. I had the opportunity to interview two community activists yesterday and I am always so energized by people with a love for and enthusiasm about our area. Love getting together with others who share my ideals,whether papercrafting, art related, or community related.

I am simply thankful today for warm enough weather that I could get outside and plant the rest of my tulip and hyacinth bulbs. I will be able to look forward to seeing my flowers in the spring!

I am thankful that my cousins son is now out of ICU and heading into the next phase of recovery. He has been moved to a special rehab center and will be working with people who specialize in helping with healing after serious head trauma. I am so thankful that Shanes memory is returning to him, that he can speak and hug his momma too. I am so grateful God has blessed this family beyond measure. {I pray this young man never forgets what God has done for him.}
