So Grateful

I'm so grateful ....

... to Susan (& Ardyth, Karen, Heather and 
     Cheryl) for their OLW Challenges (this week 
     is Gratitude and 2013 Thanksgiving Crusade 
     Kick Off)
... for all the marvelous CAS talent online that 
     inspires me
... for my mother's impromptu visit
... for the sunshine this Sunday 
... for the most delicious Sushi
... for discovering "Divine" Lychee wine made 
     right here in Mauritius - so light and fruity
... to receive FOUR parcels full of craft supplies this week (my second order of Annabelle Stamps, my first new Papertrey Ink stamps, EK Success circle punches and a set of Inktense pencils!)

Orange is so NOT my colour. I find it difficult even buying ink or paper in orange. But it is in the inspiration at Annabelle Stamps this week.

But I know just the friend I'll be giving this to ... orange is her colour, and she deserves the first card of my 2013 Thanksgiving Crusade. I just had to break open one of my new Annabelle stamp sets and play a little.


  1. I love this post. So much to be thankful for. Your card is gorgeous.

  2. Ditto what Lynn said! What a good reminder that so many good things go on in this crazy world and we need to be thankful for them! Love the clean fresh card with those gorgeous summery colours!

  3. Janet, I love your beautiful card. And, this blog post is equally beautiful. Each day is a gift with so many blessings, isn't it?

  4. I know that your friend will absolutely adore this beauty, it's such a stunning cas design Janet!
    Thanks so much for sharing with us at Annabelle Stamps!

  5. Janet, I LOVE this layout!!!! So fun and happy, and those flowers are adorable! And thank you so much for such a lovely post to help kick off the newly renamed Thanksgiving Crusade.

    And I notice you say you finally broke down and ordered from Papertrey. Hmmm. You held out a LONG time, but maybe living on Mauritius made that easier than it was for me, LOL!

    Off to check out the Annabelle stamps...

  6. Wow another beautiful card using AnnaBelle's images Janet! I'm sure your friend loved this pretty card.

  7. Simply amazing! Love this one layer card, it's just perfect!
    TFS :)

  8. Thank you for visiting me. Your card is lovely I'm sure you will use that set a lot.

  9. This is a lovely, colourful sunshiny card which makes me want to check out that stamp set...also its a nice idea to list what you have to be thankful for...sadly it can be rather easy for the lovely good bits to be subsumed into the general clamour of our lives.


Thank your for popping by! I'd love to hear your comments
