Giving Thanks

Hello friends! It is a beautiful day here in Pittsburgh... big puffy clouds and the hint of a breeze. I have my office window open and I'm looking forward to getting outside. I love fall!

Today I'd like to share with you the final card in my Autumn Abundance trio.

Here is the first and second if you're interested in seeing them.

And my final installment: ;)

I followed my theme, using the sunflower image this time and changing out the cardstock for Enchanted Evening. The sentiment is from Vintage Picnic Sentiments. I stamped each word separately to keep with the same layout of the sentiments. I like that each of the sentiments came from a different stamp set, yet fit right in with the group.

Feast your eyes on this, the trio:

Aren't they so pretty all together like that? I just love it.

Do any of you ever have a favorite creation that you set up on a shelf or something just so you can look at it? I do! I set these three beauties up on my bookshelf all together so I could admire them. Making cards makes me happy! :)

I am also excited to share that my sister-in-law had her baby yesterday. We welcomed little Jacob into the family right around lunch time! Both mom and baby are doing well, and I hope to see them soon!

I hope you are having a great day where you are and that you have some time to be creative. I'm glad you came to visit me!
