Crafters of Faith ~ Thanksgiving

Today is the last day of the month and I am here to welcome you to my Crafters of Faith card!   I am blessed to have you stop by and celebrate an early Thanksgiving with all of us! The Crafters of Faith blogging group is a joyous blending of Christian friends ~ joined together to fellowship, share our faith, build friendships and craft together! If you want to see all of the creations, there is a blog list on the left side--please check out all of the cards.

"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances,
for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." I Thessalonians 5:16-18

Wow, it's hard to believe that there is only 3 more months left of 2012...where has the time gone?? Some of you may know from reading my blog this week that Autumn is my favorite season of the year. In Southern Ontario it is quickly making its appearance and where I'm from the color of the changing leaves can be quite spectacular. It's so inspiring--I just love it! Autumn also includes my most favorite holiday celebration--THANKSGIVING!! It's hard not to love a holiday that calls on us to give thanks for our blessings. I realize not everyone around the world celebrates this holiday, and our friends in the U.S. don't celebrate until November, so for this challenge you can choose to make either a card for thanksgiving OR a thank you card for someone who has been a blessing to you. Please use at least 2 designer papers and 1 embellishment, and most importantly, have fun! I can't wait to see what you've created!

Here is the card I created for you. 

I think this is such a cute and funny image………… I even added a Thanksgiving brad on the inside of my card:
